LIVE: NASA Double Asteroid Redirection Test, DART is our first planetary defence test

Twofold Space rock Redirection Test (DART) Mission Live Updates: NASA’s DART (Twofold Space rock Redirection Test) shuttle is planned to crash into the space rock Dimorphos at around 7.14 PM EDT on September 26 (4.44 AM IST on September 27). The mission will be quick to test a “dynamic impactor” technique for planetary protection, which includes steering space rocks that compromise Earth by crashing a rapid shuttle into it.

Data got from DART’s accident will be contrasted with the information from different programmatic experiences run by researchers to discover whether this motor impactor strategy will stay a practical choice in the event of a genuine undermining space rock. Researchers don’t yet know the specific mass of Dimorphos however being around five billion kilograms is assessed.

The DART shuttle weighs around 600 kilograms. NASA says that the DART rocket will collide with the space rock Dimorphos at 4.44 AM IST on September 27. At the hour of the arranged crash, the rocket will be so distant from Earth that it requires 38 seconds for one-way correspondence. Beginning an hour prior to the arranged crash, the space apparatus will be working totally independently utilizing its Shrewd Nav framework.
