Last night, NASA successfully launched their first asteroid sample return mission. OSIRIS-REx, which lifted off from Cape Canaveral, FL, will travel to a potentially dangerous asteroid known as Bennu and collect a sample to bring back to Earth for testing. The spacecraft is in excellent health and should arrive at Bennu in two years' time.
