Proposed name: Muninn

Justification for the name: "Muninn is the ancient Norse word for “memory”. Muninn and Huginn are the Odin's ravens. They’re the messengers of the gods, whose task was to fly over the planet Earth, collecting news and information, bringing knowledge to their sender. The OSIRIS-REx objectives are nothing but the Muninn’s one: the seek of knowledge, no matter how hard it is to achieve."

What do you want to see next in space? "In the future I'd like to see the exploration of Mars, by sending a manned mission to there."
