In 2013, Michael Puzio won a contest hosted by the Planetary Society, the Linear Asteroid Survey that discovered Bennu and the mission itself.
Young Michael Puzio suggested the now named "Osiris-Rex" space craft's
"Touch-and-Go Sample Mechanism (TAGSAM) arm and solar panels resemble the neck and wings in illustrations of Bennu, whom ancient Egyptians usually depicted as a gray heron. Bennu is the ancient Egyptian deity linked with the Sun, creation and rebirth -- Puzio also noted that Bennu is the living symbol of Osiris. The myth of Bennu suits the asteroid itself, given that it is a primitive object that dates back to the creation of the Solar System. Themes of origins, rebirth and duality are all part of this asteroid's story. Birds and bird-like creatures are also symbolic of rebirth, creation and origins in various ancient myths."

When Will the Bennu Samples Arrive?
What Do We Know About the Surface of Bennu Thus Far?
Clay like material insinuating that this asteroid held water/moisture from whatever greater rock it broke off.
Why Do Scientists Feel Bennu is a threat?
It is as wide as five football fields, and 1,664 times heavier than The Titantic. Its impact would release more TNT than all the world's previous nuclear bombs detonated.
