This illustration provided by NASA depicts the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft at the asteroid Bennu. The rocky remnant from the dawn of the solar system may hold clues to the origins of life. On Friday, Sept. 22, 2017, the probe will use Earth's gravity to put it on a path toward Bennu. (Conceptual Image Lab/Goddard Space Flight Center/NASA via AP)
