NASA | Tour of asteroid Bennu

NASA | Tour of asteroid Bennu

(4:53) When NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft arrived at asteroid Bennu in December 2018, its close-up images confirmed what mission planners had predicted nearly two decades before: Bennu is made of loose material weakly clumped together by gravity, and shaped like a spinning top. Thanks to laser altimetry data and high-resolution imagery from OSIRIS-REx, we can take a tour of Bennu's remarkable terrain.

Hmm...Good clumping properties, easily scooped.  Unfortunately, already used.
