OSIRIS-REx will pluck samples from an asteroid and return them to Earth. The samples could help explain our solar system's formation and how life began. OSIRIS-REx (short for Origins-Spectral Interpretation-Resource Identification-Security-Regolith Explorer) has a planned launch date in 2016. When it returns to Earth, scheduled for 2023, it will be the first U.S. mission to carry samples from an asteroid back to our planet.
