Topics: near-Earth asteroids, fun, Earth impact hazard, asteroids, OSIRIS-REx, explaining science

I visited the OSIRIS-REx headquarters at the University of Arizona a little while ago and saw the studio where they are starting to put together some really neat educational videos about their mission and asteroids in the style of AsapSCIENCE. Here's the first one of those videos -- I think it's pretty fun, and I look forward to more!

What is an asteroid and how much is science fact and how much science fiction? OSIRIS-REx presents the first 321Science video about asteroids. This video looks at asteroids in popular culture to explore how much is fact and how much is fiction.
