NASA’s Dart Mission Was Successful

NASA’s Dart mission was successful. NASA wanted to test a theory that if a spacecraft crashed into an asteroid, could it possibly change the rock’s trajectory. NASA decided to test this on the asteroid, Dimorphos. It was not a threat to Earth, just simply a demonstration to prevent possible future rocks that could be a threat. The spacecraft successfully crashed into Dimorpos. It will take scientists a few months to figure out if it’s course was actually altered or not. However, the impact alone was a success in execution.
