Robert Zimmerman,; in re:   Osiris Rex visits Nightingale on asteroid Bennu. Secured an unexpectedly large sample; now have got the sample head inside the return capsule and sealed it. Will head for Earth in March 2021, arrive in Sept 2023.  Had to cancel intended manoeuvers, incl a spin that would have told us how much material is there: proto-Solar System dust! Ryugu/Hayabusa 2:  created a crater to open up the interior of the asteroid to find inside material.  This upset the asteroid for a thirty-meter radius.  “Philae is a robotic European Space Agency lander that accompanied the Rosetta spacecraft until it separated to land on comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko”  It bounced once; have reviewed and one of Philae’s arms actually was held there for almost two minutes; left several different impacts.  Have decided that the comet is “frothy” – more so than a cappuccino. Density of Styrofoam.  A bright meteor that burned over Western Alaska on 15 Oct; set off regional sensors designed to monitor volcanic eruptions.  Have we found China’s landing sites on Mars?  Utopia Plantatia.  We have high-res pix of that location; China removed its coordinates from media.
