LIVE TechnoA spacecraft made by the Air Force and Space Administration (NASA) will soon go down in history by hitting an asteroid in the world’s first planetary defense test.

Double asteroid redirection test or asteroid mission DART will crash the spaceship into the small moon that follows the asteroid Didymus Monday, September 26, 2022 at 7:14 pm EDT or Tuesday at 6:14 am BST.

Hopefully, the spaceship will hit the moon Abode and take photos until the moment of impact. We will be able to see live images.

According to the Space website, on Sunday, September 25, 2022, NASA’s DART mission was launched nearly a year ago, on November 24, 2021, to test the use of a “kinetic impactor” that could potentially alter the asteroid’s orbit. .

Meanwhile, the Dimorphos DART target is about 560 feet (170 meters) wide and orbits its largest parent, Didymos, every 11 hours and 55 minutes.

The asteroid is located approximately 7 million miles (9.6 million kilometers) from Earth and presents no risk of impact on our planet, NASA said. The DART is expected to hit the Dimorphos as it travels at around 14,760 mph (23,760 km / h).
