NASA shoots an asteroid with a giant DART to help save the world

The spacecraft of NASA DART will blow up in the asteroid 65803 Didymos to hit the moon.

If an asteroid fired at the Earth, what would be our capabilities?

Of course, we could send a team of miners to break through the asteroid, plant a nuclear bomb and blow it down in the dust and dirt.

But if NASA has its way, we will not have to train miners to be astronauts – there are other plans to divert these deadly asteroids. (Fortunately, too, because it is much more meaningful to train already trained astronauts to use doctrine instead of putting miners through an astronaut school but that's another matter altogether).

NASA prepares for a (potential) court result with the double asteroid redirect mission – a mission to check if we can hit a spacecraft in an asteroid and turn it off course, thus saving mankind and going has prevented us from ever sending Bruce Willis to space.

In the episode of this week on Watch This Space we will look at the mission of DART to 65803 Didymos – a binary asteroid (full of moonlet) that is currently circling the sun along the Earth.

According to NASA, the moon (or Didimona, as it is called) is a perfect example of an asteroid of size and type that could collapse in the Earth. So the space agency wants to send its DART spacecraft back in December 2020 to blow up the 150-meter lunar light and crash into its surface. Imagine it as a pool game. If you have to knock 8 balls in the corner pocket, you will tap the cue ball on his side and drop at an angle. Sending the cue ball into the moonlight, NASA will measure how the influence changes the moon's inertia, and we hope to get a better idea of ​​how the asteroids can be redirected in the future.

from the European Space Agency and what does that have to do with Elijah Wood and the movie "Labyrinth", then check this week's Watch This Space episode. You can get your correction every other Friday with new episodes or catch up on CNET or YouTube.
