NASA Asteroid Deflection LIVE 9/26/22

If you don't want to miss a thing - 


Background -

NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) has one single instrument onboard – the Didymos Reconnaissance and Asteroid Camera for Optical Navigation, aka the DRACO camera. DRACO serves as the spacecraft’s eye and will guide DART to its final destination: impact with asteroid Dimorphos. The stream you’re watching is a real-time feed from the DART spacecraft enabled through the DRACO camera sending one image per second to Earth. ...

At 7:14 p.m., the DART spacecraft is slated to intentionally crash into asteroid Dimorphos. This stream will be delayed due to the time it takes the images to arrive at Earth, plus additional time for feeding the images to various platforms. For the most up-to-date DRACO camera feed, please tune into the NASA DART Impact Broadcast here: https://youtu.be/4RA8Tfa6Sck


Plot twist: Dimorphos is actually an alien vessel disguised as an asteroid.  NASA has committed the first intergalactic act of war.

NASA is full of neocons.


I am impressed by the math involved in this.  Not only did it reach an asteroid in orbit, it actually hit the asteroids moon.  So the object orbiting the object orbiting the sun.

That would explain why the US Space Force was created


Now if the asteroid moved out of the way a la Eros in The Expanse, then it would be time to worry.


That was a good show.


Smile….you’re on candid camera
