NASA has freed the Bennu asteroid sample after three months of trying.

After its successful OSIRIS-REx mission to set an unmanned craft down on and retrieve a sample from the Bennu asteroid, two stubborn screws kept NASA’s scientists out of the canister. Now the screws are out, and there’s video to prove it.

The US space agency says it will release a catalog of the sample to scientists this spring.
