NASA DART Mission Live: Spacecraft COLLIDES with Asteroid Dimorphos at 14000 mph
NASA Double Asteroid Redirection Test Livestream: the historic DART spacecraft crashed onto Dimorphos asteroid.
NASA Double Asteroid Redirection Test Livestream: After months of waiting, the NASA DART mission spacecraft is ready for its crash landing. What is more, you can watch NASA DART mission live updates now. In fact, in just one hour, the world will witness a historic moment as NASA sends its spacecraft to collide with Asteroid Dimorphous to test the planetary...Read More
ESA to conduct an in-depth analysis of the collision
European Space Agency's Hera mission will conduct an in-depth analysis of the DART collision and its long term consequences in 2026.
IMPACT SUCCESS! Watch from #DARTMIssion’s DRACO Camera, as the vending machine-sized spacecraft successfully collides with asteroid Dimorphos, which is the size of a football stadium and poses no threat to Earth. pic.twitter.com/7bXipPkjWD— NASA (@NASA) September 26, 2022
This is the first time humanity has moved a celestial object
NASA official highlights the monumental milestone achieved by the DART mission.
DART is just the first planetary defense mission
NASA official says that the real work begins now.
Celebrations go around as the impact takes place
The DART team celebrates as the DART spacecraft crashes into the Dimorphos asteroid.
SmartNav has stopped maneuvering the spacecraft
The DART spacecraft is now coasting towards the target and will crash at any moment now.
Just 5 minutes for the NASA DART impact
The impact will take in just 5 minutes. The first images will be be visible a couple minutes after the impact due to data transfer time and image processing.
Dimorphos is not a Threat to Earth
NASA has once again clarified that the Dimorphos asteroid is not a threat to Earth at this moment or it will be after the impact. It is merely a target chosen to see the capabilities as well as to collect data from a mission like this.
DART precision locks are set on the Dimorphos asteroid
“Only 20 minutes until impact, #DARTMission's smart navigation is now precision-locked on non-hazardous asteroid Dimorphos, as the space craft travels at 6 kilometers per second," tweets NASA.
LICIACube, a cubesat, to take images of the impact
Planetary defense takes planetary participation. LICIACube, a small cube satellite built by the @ASI_spazio, will try to capture images of the impact to provide a glimpse into the surface change of asteroid Dimorphos: pic.twitter.com/M9G7ogwEBK— NASA (@NASA) September 26, 2022
DART has locked onto the target successfully
According to NASA, DART system has detected and locked onto the Dimorphos asteroid using its SmartNav algorithm.
James Webb Space Telescope is also observing the DART crash
