DART Mission: NASA launches a spacecraft to deflect Asteroid Dimorphos
NASA successfully launched the world’s first planetary defence system, the DART satellite, from the Vandenberg US Space Force Base on November 24. In fact, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket launched the spacecraft.
Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Maryland built the DART spacecraft at NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office.
The spacecraft will strike the asteroid at 6.6 kilometres per second, or 24,000kmph. In addition, NASA expects the collision to occur between September 26 and October 1, 2022. Moreover, the spacecraft’s target is Dimorphos, a small asteroid satellite about 160 metres in diameter.

A holographic camera developed by scientists that can see through object
Researchers have created a powerful holographic camera that can see through objects, according to a recent study.
Northwestern University researchers in Illinois, United States, developed this camera. And they implied a technique known as synthetic wavelength holography.
It works by recreating the course of a light beam as it travels across numerous objects, bouncing off surfaces until the beam returns to the source and detects by a detector.
The researchers’ prototype employs infrared light. However, it may theoretically be changed and expanded to different frequencies for use in various applications.
