Caption

Illustration of NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) spacecraft approaching the binary near-Earth asteroid Didymos. The mission will attempt to move the asteroid's secondary (smaller) body by crashing into it. It will be an experiment to see if the Earth might be protected against an asteroid collision by changing an asteroid's orbit. DART is scheduled for launch on the 24th November 2021.
