I know someone who is involved with the Bennu sample return.  It's amazing the amount of work that goes into that....*just* for receiving the sample.

In 100 years, after Red Chinese hypersonic weapons nuke us into oblivion, after AGW destroys civilization, and after 96 years of ignorance-fed despotism, we'd love to have asteroid metals crater prices.

Question here...Is it too difficult to make the image frame in the same location from slide to slide?

Or is this a case of, "It's the way this has always been"?
