NASA spacecraft has entered an orbit of an old asteroid, which sets two tables.
The Osiris-Rex spaceship was inserted on Tuesday around the Bennu asteroid, 110 million kilometers from Earth.
The smallest wild body has ever been broken by a spacecraft. It is just 500 meters apart.
Marine bubbles are just 1.75 km above the surface of the asteroid, another table.
Osiris-Rex arrived at Bennu in early December and joined together to make the latest move.
The aim is to capture natural emissions in 2020 for returning to Earth in 2023.
New York milestone happened just an hour before a NASA researcher, New Horizons, was avoided beyond a predation rock beyond Pluto.
