NASA launches mission to save Earth from devastating collisions

NASA", Laurie Glaze, Sunday, that for the first time, you’ll try Space ship Next fall, it will hit an asteroid, as an experiment to show how such a space object would be deflected if it were headed toward Earth.

Gliese explained: "I feel that once this test is completed, we will have a lot of information, and we will be more prepared in the future to tackle dangerous asteroids".

The first step of the experiment will begin on Tuesday, when it will be launched "SpaceX" the mission "DART" NASA, from the base "Vandenberg" for space power in California.

Agency quotes "UPI" For the news on DART astronaut Tom Statler: "Many facts are still unknown about the test result, because NASA has little knowledge of the composition of the target asteroid (Demorphos), which is the size of football stadium".

The mission, estimated to cost $330 million, will fly to the asteroid system "Didimus"It is two bodies that rotate around each other.

The target asteroid "Dimorphos", is a satellite of"Didimus"Note that the spacecraft will fly to it at a speed of 15,000 miles per hour, and it will monitor telescopes The ground collision, the extent of its impact, and its ability to change course.

“Many facts are still unknown about the test result, because NASA has little knowledge of the composition of the target asteroid (Demorphos), which is the size of football stadium“.

The mission, estimated to cost $330 million, will fly into the Didymos asteroid system, which is two objects that orbit each other.

The target asteroid, Demorphos, is a satellite of Didimos, knowing that the spacecraft will fly to it at a speed of 15,000 miles per hour, and it will monitor telescopes The ground collision, the extent of its impact, and its ability to change course.
