NASA's mission to save Earth successful, NASA's spacecraft collided with asteroid
NASA DART Mission: Today is a historic day for Earth. The Dart mission of the American space agency NASA collided with the asteroid at 4:45 am Indian time. NASA's spacecraft itself was also destroyed in this collision. The collision was part of a NASA test to see whether space rocks that could pose a threat to Earth could be safely deflected from their path. This experiment has been successful in a collision, but did the asteroid change its course due to the collision?
NASA has made a big record this morning. The Space Agency has successfully conducted a test to save the Earth from an asteroid. Under this, he carried out his dart mission. This is the first time that a planetary defence system (DART) mission has been successfully completed. Its advantage can now be taken to eliminate any asteroid moving towards the earth in the future.
The dart collided with an asteroid named Dimorphos, whose width is 160 meters. Dart's camera was sending one picture per second to Earth until its collision with the asteroid. The last picture was found of the full closeup of the asteroid. After the collision, both the spacecraft and the camera on it were destroyed. Initial estimates are that the collision occurred about 17 meters from the center of Dimorphous. Dimorphous was no threat to the earth but the success of this mission can make our future secure.
Let us tell you that the spacecraft collided with a small asteroid named Dimorphos at 4.45 am. The length of the asteroid that hit the Dart spacecraft was 169 meters. The Livestream showing it live showed cube-shaped images taken by DART's own camera.
The DART mission was designed to determine whether a spacecraft is capable of changing the direction of an asteroid through accelerating force and whether this could protect our planet from future damage. Let us tell that our earth is more threatened by asteroids than global warming and this mission is being seen as a big success.
