Good news! Yesterday, I successfully ejected the flight cover on my TAGSAM sampling arm. I also performed two spins -- called Sample Mass Measurements -- before and after to confirm that my mass changed about 2.5 lbs (approximately the weight of the cover). pic.twitter.com/wkugxtoKQ6— NASA's OSIRIS-REx (@OSIRISREx) October 18, 2018
LOVE this space launches chart in @TheEconomist. Applaud their highlighting data driven stories in a new section. Still so crazy to me that all this great work goes uncredited (as do all the words in every issue). Thanks for the beautiful data viz anonymous graphic reporter! pic.twitter.com/uMkW8j0d3a— Jon Keegan (@jonkeegan) October 18, 2018
