Mission Dart: images of the collision between the NASA spacecraft and the asteroid – World Today News

The impact took place at the scheduled time, at 23:14 GMT (1:14 a.m. French time). The spacecraft, smaller than a car, crashed at a speed of more than 20,000 km / h on the asteroid Dimorphos. Nasa teams, gathered at the Mission Control Center in Maryland, United States, exploded with joy at the moment of the collision.

A few minutes before impact, the asteroid Dimorphos, located about 11 million kilometers from Earth, gradually grew on the spectacular images broadcast live by the spacecraft. We could clearly distinguish the stones on its gray surface, just before the video stops at the moment of the explosion.

The impact was also observed thanks to powerful telescopes on Earth, in particular from South Africa.

This mission is reminiscent of the scenario of the American disaster film Armageddon, in which Bruce Willis plays the savior of humanity.

It is now necessary to wait a few days to a few weeks before scientists can confirm that the trajectory of the asteroid has indeed been altered. They will do this thanks to telescopes on Earth, which will observe the variation in brightness as the small asteroid passes in front and behind the large one.
