Another launch is planned from Cape Canaveral this coming Thursday September 8, 2016. This launch is quite different from previous launches that I have told you about. An Atlas V rocket will take off from the Cape Thursday evening at 7:05pm. This rocket will travel to an asteroid named Bennu, land, collect a sample of the asteroid and return to Earth. The rocket will not reach the Bennu asteroid until 2018 and will not return to Earth until 2023. Bennu has a 500 meter diameter and completes an orbit around our Sun every 1.2 years. Every 6 years it comes closer to the Earth which is why it was chosen for this mission.
Very cool if all goes as planned!
