The OSIRIS-REx spacecraft, which enjoyed a flawless Sept. 8 launch, has successfully sent back its first images.

Among the proud engineers were AME alumnus Bradley Williams, who helped build the camera suite. Graduate student Tanner Campbell, who worked on the software that will navigate OSIRIS-REx around the asteroid Bennu, is also watching the spacecraft's progress with avid interest.
