The Double Asteroid Redirection Test mission (DART), consists of equipment aboard SpaceX rockets. Vandenberg Space Force Base in California, departs at 10:21 p.m. (local time)..
Now, you will head towards Dimorphos which is a “moon”, measuring approximately 160 meters in diameter.It is located around Didymos, a larger asteroid with a diameter approximately 780 meters. These celestial bodies orbit the sun in a system.
The spacecraft’s impact will continue until 2022, when it will be decommissioned.
Although Tuesday night’s launch was successful, the spacecraft will not reach the asteroid approximately 11 million kilometers away from Earth until 2022.“We are trying to figure out how to transfer threats.”NASA Chief Scientist Thomas Zuburchen spoke out about the mission.

According to DatabaseOnly 10,000 asteroids have so far been identified to be very near the Earth, and over 140 meters in diameter. They will not be able to make a significant impact on the planet in the next 100-years..
