Asteroid Sample Safely Stored Away


Very rarely do we get to witness a world first but that we did when a space mission successfully landed on an asteroid. Then collected samples by sending a van-sized shuttle to land on the asteroid. It then extended an arm to collect the sample. Returning to the mother ship successfully without incident. That was a world first and an incredible achievement. In that feat, we advanced both scientifically and mechanically. Once the sample was safely back on the mother ship.  Another issue occurred to do with stowing away the sample safely. This was because a rock was preventing the capsule containing the sample from closing fully. This caused sample material to leak.

Today 2 months earlier than planned the successful  safe encapsulation of the sample was achieved. The sample is 200million miles away from earth. It is due to arrive in two years and during an earth, pass send the sample down to a waiting team.

William is our Associate Editor, providing the freshest scientific news. Here’s a secret: William is actually quite a famous Op-Ed columnist for another site. But he uses pseudonyms there, and we will never tell. After all, we couldn’t get luckier — having him provide us with the freshest scientific news. William was born in Palo Alto, which obviously had a major impact on his love for science. However, there was a time when he seriously considered becoming a punk rocker — he had the garage band and all. Next thing William knew he was majoring in Computational Science, running columns for The Alto Sheet, The Californian and The Pacific Vision. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t play his guitar anymore. You should hear his punk rock version of Careless Whisper.
