Time for Andromeda Strain Panic?? NASA probe begins journey to earth after collecting asteroid samples

If you thought the 'Chinese Rocket Booster To Destroy Earth' panics had credibility...you'll love the stupidity about to blossom around this one!!

NASA's asteroid-sampling mission will bid farewell to asteroid Bennu today

[www.space.com]

After more than two years circling a lumpy space rock called Bennu, it's finally time for NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft to head back to Earth with a full load precious cargo: pieces of an asteroid.

OSIRIS-REx (known formally as Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, Regolith Explorer) collected asteroid samples from Bennu in October. Now it's time to bring those samples home to laboratories on Earth for scientists to study to understand how asteroids, and our solar system, formed.

If all goes as planned, OSIRIS-REx will head for home today (May 10) at about 4 p.m. EDT (2000 GMT) and are expecting to receive confirmation about 16 minutes later that the spacecraft's thrusters began to fire. NASA will broadcast live coverage from mission control, including new images from the spacecraft's final pass over Bennu, today beginning at 4 p.m. EDT.

But will it escape from the lab? stay tuned to you local Fox channel.

Wouldn't it be ironic if the returning satellite crashed in Wuhan...

Old news.

Japan's Hayabusa 2 already returned samples from another asteroid in Dec 2020.

December 2020?
Wasn't that about the time the PANDEMIC crashed into the world?

I wonder how difficult it would be for one insane man to start an actual pandemic-panic over the return of this probe.

"They're doing bad things up there..."





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I think we may find out. This seems to be the glory age of stupid.
