DART mission is the first mission dedicated to investigating and demonstrating whether it is possible to deflect asteroids by means of a kinetic impact, to achieve this, NASA will crash a ship against an asteroid that orbits another, as if it were a small moon, it is the Dual composite system. by a main object called Didymos of about 780 meters in diameter and a smaller moon of 160 meters in diameter which is called Dimorphos.

The European space agency published these images where the size of the two asteroids is compared with respect to known monuments, it is expected that the impact on Dimorphos will push it and slightly change its orbit within the system by analyzing the asteroid's mass, deflection and energy. necessary to achieve this deviation we will be able to have an idea of ​​what we will need to deflect an asteroid that comes on a collision course with the earth.

The launch window of the DART mission will open on November 24 at 7:20 Central European time, the takeoff will take place from the Vanderberg space force base in California, the rocket in charge of sending the ship into space will be a Falcon 9 from SpaceX.
