NASA will shoot down an asteroid today to prevent Armageddon

The American space agency plans to strike an asteroid heading towards Earth. Today NASA, together with SpaceX, will launch a Falcon 9 rocket into space. It will launch the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) into orbit, which will hit the asteroid in a year, according to The Guardian.

The purpose of the experiment is to test the protective system of the Earth. which can provide information on what needs to be done to change the trajectory of the asteroid.

NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission is the first attempt to test whether an asteroid reversal is a realistic target.

According to NASA calculations, in the fall of 2022, DART will collide with a small asteroid that does not pose a danger to Earth, but NASA chose it as a target due to the ability to track changes in its orb It is done with ground-based telescopes.
