Tomorrow evening, at 7:05 P.M. (EDT), the Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security-Regolith Explorer (OSIRIS-REx) spacecraft will blast off, headed for the asteroid Bennu.
Members of the public are invited to NASA’s Goddard Space Center to celebrate the launch, but if you can’t make it out to Maryland, you can watch the launch live on NASA TV, with coverage of the launch starting at 5:30 P. M. (EDT).
