How did the Solar System evolve? How did life arrive on earth? And how can life be sustained beyond our earthly bounds? With a remarkable trio of missions (Osiris Rex, Artemis, and Perseverance Rover) NASA seeks to find fundamental answers to these questions. Each involves the taking of samples from a different celestial body and returning those samples to earth for further study. Taken together, these three missions will add a large body of empirical data to bolster—or break apart—prevailing theories of how our solar system was born, how it evolved and how life emerged here on Earth.
