DART asteroid-smashing mission ‘on monitor for an impression,’ NASA says

NASA is simply days away from slamming a spacecraft into an asteroid 7 million miles (11 million kilometers) from Earth.

The company’s long-awaited Double Asteroid Redirection Check (DART) mission will impression with the asteroid moonlet Dimorphos on Monday (Sept. 26), if all goes in response to plan. The DART mission launched on Nov. 23, 2021 on high of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and is now hurtling by deep area towards the binary near-Earth asteroid (65803) Didymos and its moonlet Dimorphos.
