You’ve Got 10 Seconds to Get Your Sample
On October 20th, NASA’s OSIRIS-REx mission plans to touch the surface of an asteroid, to collect a rock sample. The asteroid Bennu, is 200,000,000 miles away, and traveling 63,000 miles-per-hour, so it will take some skilled spacecraft maneuvering. The sample will be collected by an 11-foot -long robotic arm. You can watch it happen, at NASA.gov.
