Also on September 22, AZPM's original, Emmy-nominated OSIRIS REx: Countdown to Launch will air on public television stations around the country, including PBS 6. The half-hour documentary tells the story of the scientists and engineers behind the University of Arizona's historic asteroid return sample mission. The program's broadcast coincides with the mission's gravity assist maneuver when the Earth’s gravity will slingshot the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft toward the asteroid Bennu.
