NASA's Asteroid Deflection Test Mission

This animation shows how NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) would target and strike an asteroid…

In the footage it strikes the smaller (left) element of the binary asteroid Didymos to demonstrate how a kinetic impact could potentially redirect an asteroid as part of the agency’s planetary defense program.
