NASA is wrapping up arrangements to launch Earth’s first planetary defence system on November 23, which will shield humans from asteroid collisions.
The space agency said that the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) spacecraft is ready for launch. The final testing is nearly complete with launch rehearsals.
DART will travel almost 7 million kilometres from Earth to the twin asteroid system Dimorphos and Didymos.
When it arrives, it will collide with Dimorphos at a speed of about 24,140 kilometres per hour.
Therefore, The key goal of the collision is to see if such a collision may alter the orbit of the asteroid system.
