NASA’s Dart Mission Results

The results from NASA’s experimental Dart Mission against the Dimorphos asteroid, have been revealed.

NASA recently tested the theory that if a spacecraft intentionally crashed into an asteroid, could it possibly result in changing the path of the space rock. The double asteroid redirection tested successfully and in fact did change the trajectory of the space rock.

The Dart Mission marked the first time humanity intentionally changed the motion of a astronomical object in space. It was also the first mission conducted on behalf of worldly defense.
