News 24 | NASA launches a space mission to destroy...

The US space agency, NASA, has revealed its intention to launch a spacecraft in late November, whose mission will be to destroy two asteroids before they reach Earth.

NASA will send the “DART” spacecraft aboard the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, towards the binary asteroid system “Dedimos” and its moon, to deviate it slightly from its current path.

“DART will be the first demonstration of kinetic impact technology, which involves sending one or more large, high-speed spacecraft into the path of an asteroid in space to change its destination,” NASA said in a statement.

NASA considers any object close to Earth a “potential danger” if it is within 0.05 astronomical units (4.6 million miles) and is more than 460 feet in diameter.

According to “NASA”, there are approximately 25,000 known objects close to the planet, but there are more of them waiting to be discovered, according to the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”.

It is worth noting that “DART” is part of NASA’s strategy to protect the Earth from the threat of asteroids, and was designed in cooperation with the European Space Agency.
