    Watch out , I am going to throw a baseball at you and it will come within 280,000 miles of you , SO DUCK ! ROFL
    Sorry not making fun of the reporter or the report just the content .
    Funny how 280,000 miles is a near miss and billions will be spent for a near miss that is far away .

    I dont know where they come up with these names..

    The mission, called OSIRIS-Rex (Origins Spectral Interpretation Resource Identification Security Regolith Explorer)

    When something like "The Sampler" would be so muc more efficient..:p
