7:18 am
concern, if you will. it's actually the chance of it developing down a little from yesterday. yesterday the hurricane center said maybe a 70% chance of this one developing in 4, 5 days, and it's down to 06% now. we'll have to keep our eye on it. nothing to be too concerned about soon. 95 today. our big issue certainly the heat. this is a look at the heat index. it's going to feel like 97 to 99 during the middle of the afternoon. really, really hot. we talked about hopscotch, one of the biggest music festivals we have. saturday is one of the biggest days. it's going to be hot there. at 9:00, 80. over the weekend, expect 90 on sunday. big weekend for outdoor events, and it looks like it will stay fairly dry. it looked like that might bring us a chance of some thunderstorms; but you know, probably only about 20% chance. so i wouldn't change your sunday plans because of

7:36 am
us. >> good morning. it's nice to be here. >> so tell us why it's so important to head out to this asteroid to take samples. why are we interested in this? . >> well, the earth and all the other planets form about 4.6 billion years ago. asteroids and comets are the material that was length of time over. it didn't get incorporated into earth, mars, or any of the other planets of the solar system. so and get to sample that pristine material that's really the building block that our planet is made of, everything on this planet. in fact, we suspect the type of asteroid van, is a carb neighbors asteroidthat's the kind of asteroid that not just brought water to earth; it also potentially brought the seeds of life to earth. >> so if we learn more about the seeds of life, what will scientists do with that information?
7:37 am
sometimes of meteorites is that we've actually seen e letters of our dnaence -- our dna seence is made up of four compounds. we've seen some of those letters in there's en t letters that life on earth doesn't incorporate. one of the things we're trying to undetand is the implications for life not just on this planet, but for those 3,000 plus plets we've been around other stars. asteroidhave big implications for understanding not just the igins of life on eah, but the origins of life beyond earth. so is isportan missio, thbut one of the first times na has tried to sample an id, especially as it's moving. and you're calling itkissing the asteroid. explain th. >> that's right. we don't actually land the spacecraft to return a sample. we basically drop what looks
7:38 am
asteroid. we grab a sample, bring it back up to the spacecraft. this is hard stuff we're doing. our juicer are amazing. they've been able to work hard over the last six or so years to figure out how the do this. we're confident it's going to work, and we're excited abt it. this is technology we need in the future as we send humans out beyond earth's orbit toward mars. >> very exciting. a firs how long will it take to got that information back on earth? . >> this is a long mission. scientists have to be patient. it takes about two years to get to banu, the asteroid we're going. this is a model of benu. with oar going to spend about two years orbiting the asteroid, studying it, figuring out what is the best sample to bring back to earth. then the sample will actually arrive here in september of 2023.
7:39 am
we can't wait to hear what what the mission brings back. and ellen stofan, nasa chief scientist, thanks so much for being with us this morning. very interesting information. the launch is set for 7:05 tonight, and live coverage of the launchbegins on nasa tv at 4:30. you cafound out information about e mission vennu on nasa's web site at also coming up later on our newscast in the 8:00 hour, we're going to talk to benu got its name, and it happens to be something that haalmost a loc t. more about that coming up. >> good stuff. >>we love a local tie. thanks, elizeth. there's a new iphone to clamor over this morning. . >>lus starbucks wants to give its customers more than a cup of joe. the new feature coffee lovers will find in the
