The OSIRIS-REx Laser Altimeter (OLA) will provide a three-dimensional map of asteroid Bennu’s shape, which will allow scientists to understand the context of the asteroid’s geography and the sample location. OLA is provided by the Canadian Space Agency in exchange for Canadian ownership of a portion of the returned asteroid sample. Credit: NASA’s Goddard Space flight Center/Katrina Jackson
