NASA in a suicide mission, the rocket is running towards the asteroid at high speed, will the human civilization survive

Newshub18:

NASA is on a suicidal mission to secure the future of human civilization. Next week, the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) spacecraft will slam into an asteroid 11 million miles from Earth. Not only NASA, European Space Agency is also involved in this projectAsteroids of various sizes often fly very close to Earth. Don’t worry about the smaller ones, but the bigger ones are the problem. The entire human civilization can be destroyed. How the dinosaurs became extinct. And so it is being tested whether or not asteroids rushing towards Earth can be smashed into pieces by spacecraft. That is why this suicide attack. If the test is successful, it will lead to new ways of protecting Earth’s defense system.

This exam will be conducted on September 23. NASA is sending a small satellite to photograph the experiment. After 24 hours it will return to earth. Incidentally, earlier in the 1998 Hollywood film ‘Armageddon’, a large asteroid heading towards Earth was shot up by a NASA spacecraft. Now the story of the movie is going to be real.

The Dart spacecraft is about twice the size of a washing machine. The box-shaped spacecraft is attached to two 18-meter-tall solar panels. The spacecraft launched on November 24, 2021, from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. After about nine months, it approached the asteroid Didymos, located between Earth and Mars.

However, the 749 meter radius ‘Didymos’ asteroid is not NASA’s target. There is another smaller asteroid orbiting Didymos. The Dart spacecraft will hit it at 15,000 miles per hour. And the small satellite that will be sent will collect data before, during and after the shock. NASA expects the impact to change the speed of the small asteroid orbiting Didymos by a fraction of a percent
