The OSIRIS-REx (Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, Regolith Explorer) is a NASAasteroid study and sample-return mission. The mission's main goal is to obtain a sample of at least 60 grams (2.1 oz) from101955 Bennu, a carbonaceous near-Earth asteroid, and return the sample to Earth for a detailed analysis. The material returned is expected to enable scientists to learn more about the formation and evolution of the Solar System, its initial stages of planet formation, and the source of organic compounds that led to the formation of life on Earth. If successful, OSIRIS-REx will be the first U.S. spacecraft to return samples from an asteroid. The Lidar instrument used aboard the OSIRIS-REx was built by L…

Hi everybody! I've just discovered this awesome wiki! Nice solar system wiki there, Mr. Science!
It may be the last day of 2012, but we are going to live it up one way or another. This wiki has had good days and bad days. It was even started in July of 2012. But now, as we enter another year, we will still have our ups and downs. Our good days and bad days. Bright and dark. But we can still make it all worthwhile by living up the last day. So live it like its the last, because it is. I hope you all have a wonderful New Year and a great last day of 2012.
