Join Tim McCoy, Geologist, Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History.

Last year NASA's OSIRIS-REx mission accomplished something not done in nearly 50 years by a U.S. space mission - sampling the surface of another planetary body for return to Earth. In this talk, McCoy will share the 15-year odyssey of proposing, building , and launching OSIRIS-REx to sample the asteroid Bennu.
