Elon Musk Continues To Sell Tesla Stocks One By One Due To A Twitter Poll: Here’s The Total Value Of The Stocks He’s Sold So Far
NASA launched the spacecraft called DART, which it developed to prevent meteorites that would cause a disaster as a result of hitting the Earth. There were no problems with the launch with SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket.
The American Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has been working on a spacecraft called DART for a long time. This spacecraft was very different from the ones we had the chance to meet so far. Because NASA aims to hit an asteroid approaching the Earth with DART and to protect the Earth from a possible disaster. Here, the work on that spacecraft was completed and DART was launched into space in the past hours.
It has already been determined which meteorite DART will hit, which was sent into space with SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket. According to the statements made, Dimorphos, which does not pose any risk to the world, will be tried to be destroyed through DART, so to speak. How the collision will affect Dimorphos will be critical for NASA. If the orbit of the meteorite changes, the effort spent on DART will not be wasted.
Dimorphos is orbiting the larger asteroid named Didymos. This detail has the potential to give answers to all the questions that NASA wonders. Engineers, who develop very sensitive simulations for DART, will measure the interactions of meteorites with each other and how DART will affect this interaction as a result of the studies to be done. The calculations to be made will reveal how the Earth will be protected from a possible meteorite disaster.
NASA shared the launch images of its project, which will prevent a possible disaster, live from its official social media accounts. While no problems were encountered during the launch, no problems are expected to be encountered in the next process.
