NASA Doomsday Rock samples on their way to Earth

Scientists said that a NASA spacecraft more than 200 million miles away poured samples from an asteroid into a capsule to return to Earth, after losing some of its valuable catch.

Flight controllers triggered the crucial process after some of the collected samples were spilled into space last week.

The “Osiris-Rex” spacecraft collected pebbles and other pieces from the asteroid Bennu on October 20, by briefly touching the surface with its robotic arm and snatching everything that was there. So much was collected – an estimated hundreds of fines – that the rocks got trapped in the rim of the container and opened, allowing some of the samples to fall off.
