Blog Post #1

Badke and Jabr both write about the way reading can differ depending on the format (digital vs. print) you choose. For this blog I chose theĀ postĀ “NASA is about to launch a spacecraft to an asteroid to learn more about life on Earth” by Loren Grush. OSIRIS-REx mission will launch a spacecraft to the near-Earth asteroid named Bennu in order to collect a small sample and, if successful, this sample can tell us how ourĀ Solar System was 4.5 billion years ago. “Researches believe that life’s building block may have been brought to Earth by asteroids.” If we can unlock this time capsule, it may help researches know what building blocks are needed for life and perhapsĀ find them in a distant place.Ā I chose to read this blog because, scienceĀ has always caught my attentionĀ and I wanted to know more about the mission. I felt that in reading this blog in digital format, the information about this mission was more appealing to read, since I usually read in print formatĀ for homework.Ā The blog also had an animation Ā I wouldn’t be able to see had I read itĀ in a printed format. This animation helped me better understandĀ how the spacecraft will land on the asteroid.
