Is the audio teleconference available online?

I don't see it archived online. I listened to it through https://t.co/mzKW5uV4hS?amp=1 which came from a NASA tweet.

"...Continued to move forward for an additional 3 seconds after gas release while backoff thrusters were firing before moving away..."

Could the gases from the backoff thrusters "contaminate" the samples?

Their composition is well know, it should not be an issue.

Also, given that there has been a sadly permanent departure from Bennu, perhaps it is time for a new thread? It's the opposite of an approach now....

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.
