The University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory invites you to

_*Summer Science Saturday: Countdown to Lift-off!
OSIRIS-REx spacecraft pre-launch event
*_ Saturday, August 27 from 10am - 4 pm
Kuiper Space Sciences Bldg. #92
1629 E. University Blvd.
Tucson, AZ
For questions contact organizer Maria Schuchardt at:
mariams at lpl.arizona.edu

Come celebrate and learn how will we collect the sample without landing
on asteroid Bennu and why it will take until 2023 for the sample return.
This is the last opportunity to hear the most up-to-date information
about the OSIRIS-REx asteroid sample return mission and current status
of the spacecraft directly from Deputy P.I. Ed Beshore prior to launch
from Kennedy Space Center on Sept. 8. A distinguished panel of
OSIRIS-REx science team members will be available for Q&A...a rare
opportunity for detailed inside information on the 3 cameras built by
UA, how we selected Bennu, our target, and made more observations so we
know what to expect when we arrive.

In addition, come see special mission exhibits and asteroid-related
hands-on activities led by OSIRIS-REx Ambassadors. Other planetary
science, world-renowned artists and literature groups will be
accompanied by live space music. Visitors can visit the newly-renovated
Flandrau Science Center next door for free, too.

There will be something for everyone! Make a day of it - there will be a
food truck with a variety of delicious options and you can enjoy your
food in air-conditioned comfort.

Hope to see you there!

Best regards,
Dolores Hill
