Where is the DART mission?

The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, manages the DART mission for NASA's Planetary Defense Coordination Office as a project of the agency's Planetary Missions Program Office.

NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission, will test a method of deflecting an asteroid for planetary defense, using the "kinetic impactor" technique. DART mission key facts. €“ Launched: Nov. 24, 2021 at 1:20 a.m. EDT (0620 GMT)

NASA's DART spacecraft launches on mission to intentionally smash into asteroid. SpaceX provided a ride into space for NASA's DART mission, the first attempt to test out an Earth protection plan from asteroids by crashing a spacecraft into one.

What is DART? DART was the first-ever mission dedicated to investigating and demonstrating one method of asteroid deflection by changing an asteroid's motion in space through kinetic impact. On Sept. 26, 2022, DART impacted the asteroid moonlet Dimorphos, a small body just 530 feet (160 meters) in diameter.

DART, NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Test, is the first space mission to test this or any other asteroid deflection technique. DART launched in November 2021 and will arrive at near-Earth asteroid Didymos in September 2022.

DART Impact? DART

Double Asteroid. Redirection Test DART is the first-ever space mission to demonstrate asteroid deflection by kinetic impactor. The DART impactor is a simple spacecraft, equipped with a camera and the ability to autonomously guide itself to impact the asteroid.
