While this isn’t related to UFO sightings, exploring space takes us one step closer to discovering alien life on other planets. So what if a spacecraft could be sent to grab a sample of material from an asteroid and bring it back to Earth? That was the extraordinary task NASA’s OSIRIS-Rex mission recently set out to accomplish. This documentary on PBS America takes us through the process of that mission, and the scientific rewards it could provide, offering valuable insights into our planet’s origins so that we can learn the best way to defend against rogue asteroids.
