Countdown to impact as NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) attempts humanity’s first-ever test of planetary defense! The DART spacecraft will intentionally crash into asteroid Dimorphos at 7:14 p.m. ET on Monday, September 26, 2022 to see if kinetic force can change its orbit. Why? If this test is successful, the same technique could be used to deflect an Earth-threatening asteroid in the future, should one ever be discovered.

The #DARTMission's target asteroid is NOT a threat to Earth before, during or after the impact event.

It looked a lot like a cat turd from a litter box.

Is this really that important right now? WW3 and all that...Be good if we did something planet side for a change.
Sorry, I'm new here.

This was very cool but also very 90's action/drama movie....flashback.

That was pretty cool to watch, proof of concept, have been hearing about this theoretically for decades... they just hit an object about 500 feet across from millions of miles away

Potentially, that's exactly what they are doing. If we can learn to deflect an asteroid heading for Earth, that pretty well qualifies for "doing something planet side." Sorry if that conflicts with watching Ukraine and Russia duke it out.

it's not quite video but there should be replays as it got closer and closer till the screen went back


but this captured the essence of the mission

Unfortunately they still won't stop Wormwood when it hits in 7-10 years.

OK I'll bite Wormwood since you had no links, So this is based on a dream, and says he has premonitions, just so we are clear.

Aren't there other things that need to happen first?

Yea there is multiple nasa streams with commentary that had the live feed from the satellite. Last image looks to be like hundereds of feet maybe 1000 or so tops.

Well since we were able to land on one of those things I'm slightly underwhelmed we can bump into one. Also wouldn't the question in this case not be if we're able to hit it which was pretty obvious but what would happen to it and there's nothing about that is there?
Seems stupid and quite the waste to me. Where's the equipment recording what happened to the object at impact?
And are we going to test that now for every possible configuration?
This is not science, it's a very expensive dog & pony show.

I didn't expect to hear about what happens after impact tonight. The only actual camera on it is debris now so they will have to use all the data and observatories to study it for a bit I am sure. Doubt they did it because "Hurray we confirmed we're able to do what we already knew we can do and missed the opportunity to actually learn something useful."
