OSIRIS-REx heads out

I've written a few articles on the this blog about asteroids that might take a piece out of us (Earth, really).   Well, turnabout is fair play, so today NASA launched a mission to take a piece out of an asteroid named Bennu.

It's about time.

Here's the video of the launch.   They're always exciting, especially when nothing blows up.
