DART asteroid-smashing mission ‘on track 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 Test (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 prime of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and is now hurtling via deep house towards the binary near-Earth asteroid (65803) Didymos and its moonlet Dimorphos.
