Future SpaceIn this episode, I will tell you about a fascinating space mission that collected a sample from an asteroid and brought it back to Earth. The mission is called OSIRIS-REx, and it involved sending a spacecraft to Bennu, an ancient and mysterious asteroid that orbits the sun between Earth and Mars. I will explain how OSIRIS-REx touched Bennu’s surface, grabbed some dust and rocks, and stored them in a capsule that landed in Utah on Sunday, Sept. 24, 2023. I will also tell you why this sample is so important for science and humanity, as it could reveal the secrets of our origins and our future. This is a historic moment that you don’t want to miss.
