DART asteroid crash seen by James Webb, Hubble Space Telescopes (photos)

The James Webb Space Telescope and its older counterpart Hubble photographed the impact of NASA’s DART probe on the Dimorphos space rock on Monday (September 26). The observations were the first work the two space telescopes have done in sync, according to NASA, and their collaboration will reveal new information about the battered asteroid. The …

Consequences of an asteroid crash: why Europe is sending a probe to Dimorphos, beaten by the DART

The European Space Agency’s (ESA) Hera mission will arrive at the binary asteroid system Didymos more than four years after NASA’s DART probe slammed into one of its two space rocks. By then, all of the dust generated from the experimental collision will have settled, allowing Hera and her two companion cubesats to turn the …

NASA's DART mission braces for collision with asteroid

NASA’s DART mission will crash into an asteroid’s moon today

The DART mission, or the Double Asteroid Redirection Test, will crash into space rock at 7:14 p.m. ET after launching 10 months ago. The spacecraft will attempt to affect the movement of an asteroid through space. A live feed of images captured by the spacecraft will be available on NASA’s website beginning at 6 p.m. …

NASA is about to crash a spacecraft into an asteroid. Here’s why the mission could one day save humanity.

More than 6.5 million kilometers from Earth, a cosmic collision is imminent. In a one-of-a-kind maneuver, a NASA spacecraft is about to intentionally crash into an asteroid to test if deflecting a space rock could ever save Earth from a potentially catastrophic impact. The crash is scheduled for 7:14 p.m. ET Monday. Live coverage will …

NASA's DART mission braces for collision with asteroid

NASA spacecraft will first reveal an asteroid, then crash into it

The spacecraft won’t obliterate Dimorphos, the moon orbiting asteroid Didymos, but it’s large enough to leave an impact crater. If all goes well, DART will slightly alter the motion of a celestial body in space in a stunning first. The mission’s results could shape how humans react to any future space rocks that may collide …
