NASA’s Dart Mission will take off Nov. 24 in a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. Your mission will be to deflect the asteroid Didymos and its moon Dimorphos, using a spacecraft that will hit the asteroid on October 2, 2022 and thus change its speed by one millimeter per second at 11 million kilometers from Earth.

This will be the first demonstration of the impactor technique, which aims to divert the trajectory of asteroids, impacting them with one or more large spacecraft, and thus avoiding a possible catastrophic collision on our planet.
Dimorphos is about 160 meters wide and orbits a much larger space rock called Didymos, which is about 780 meters wide. Asteroids are separated by one kilometer
The DART mission will attempt to deflect the asteroid Dimorphos with a kinetic impact. His ship, equipped with solar panels, a camera and a target, will travel through space and take down Dimorphos at about 6.6 kilometers per second.
