We dunno what's more wild: This vid of Japan's probe bouncing off an asteroid to collect a sample – or that the rock was sun-burnt

Re: All that effort the asteroid took

Yeah, my first thought was "So this will be how civilisation ends: when Ryugu's new orbit brings it to earth in x years time" Now would be a good time for someone to point out that it is so small, it would simply burn up in our atmosphere. However, the larger asteroid it will nudge is the one I'm worrying about.
