CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA's OSIRIS-REx asteroid-sampling spacecraft is now on the launchpad, ready for its planned Thursday (Sept. 8) liftoff.
OSIRIS-REx and its United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket rolled out to the pad this morning (Sept. 7) here at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The duo moved at a leisurely pace from the nearby Vertical Integration Facility, where OSIRIS-REx was stacked atop the rocket on Aug. 29.
