Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) Mission ctm magazine

On Tuesday, November 23 at 10:21 p.m. PST, Falcon 9 launched NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission to an interplanetary transfer orbit from Space Launch Complex 4 East (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. DART is humanity’s first planetary defense test mission to see if intentionally crashing a spacecraft into an asteroid is an effective way to change its course, should an Earth-threatening asteroid be discovered in the future. This was SpaceX’s first inter-planetary mission.

This was the third flight for this Falcon 9’s first stage booster, which previously supported launch of Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich and a Starlink mission.

    If my calculations are correct, I throw a puck filled with oxygen and launch it into the moon Titan, then we have it’s atmosphere go bye bye, first the atmosphere is fuel, if we launch fire from the speed of light, take about a week, then oxygen will release, and then in about 1 Minute, everything is destroyed, wmwhahahhahaha

    I gotta admit. Elon has really gone out of his way and done something USEFUL with his money unlike most (if not all) millionaires . I'd rather see him shuttling people vs Bezos. At least Elon put in work vs bezos that just bought his way in.

    It wont work on that undisclosed to the public asteroid thats driving the mars rush, its just too massive and fast, I and my children saw it ghost past in broad daylight in feb 2008 close enough to see in detail, missed us by a matter of seconds, a fractured chunk of a black moon, it was no formless rock it was plain to see and black as coal that reflected no light despite the afternoon sun illuminating its facing surface and side, massive beyond comprehension ghosting a third of the sky from end to end without a pause for ten seconds at such immense speed also beyond comprehension for something so massive before fading away, to this day it still has me looking up in disbelief and a certain amount of fear. a russian astronomer claimed the same thing exactly 9 years later in feb 2017 and I expect it back in 2026 feb but they aint got a hope in hell of diverting it even with a thousand nuclear tipped darts, it's so impossibly massive we stuck on earth just gotta hope it misses, again.

    What's the music ? The artist must've been humbled to have his thing play on a "humanity first ever…" event

    amazing content guys. Love it.

    It's possible the asteroid changing course could cause damage to Earth sooner or later? I'm not saying it will: but even a teeny tiny chance should be something to worry about. Has something like this ever been attempted before? Idk why there are tornadoes in Illinois every night now but I hope it's not something Nasa is doing. Idk it seems pretty sketchy to me especially if this is their first time doing this.. anything could happen even if you try to predict all the possibilities of where the meteor could go.

    Say what you like about spacex, but these are the guys who are getting us to Mars and could save the planet

    Trade with an expert else you will lose all your capital and you will drop off the market
    The importance of professional mentorship of an expert should be the first step of trading.

    Ahí les dejo una asignación para todos los bloggers, youtubers, estudiantes universitarios y los cientificos. Acaban de lanzar la misión Dart y se supone que con el impacto cambie el curso del pequeño asteroide que gira alrededor del más grande. Se espera que con este cambio de orbita se modifique el curso del más grande alejandolo de la Tierra. Y pregunto yo ahora:
    ¿Exactamente donde será  el impacto y que logrará esto?  ¿Cual es la velocidad del impacto, el angulo y el punto exacto? ¿Con un cuerpo celeste con una forma irregular, como se sabe en donde impactará y en que angulo? Según tengo entendido cuando estos asteroides pasen cerca de la Tierra será a una distancia segura para la Tierra.
    PERO ME PREGUNTO YO: ¿Si con este experimento sin querer modifican el curzo de asteroide haciendolo pasar más cerca de la Tierra o hacia la Tierra? Esto NO ES UN BILLAR CON ESFERAS PERFECTAS. Y si esto llega a ocurrir que su curso se acerque más a la Tierra. ¿Con que alternativas cuentan, que opciones tenemos? No digo que sea mala idea lo del satelite Dart, ya estamos avanzando en la busqueda de alternativas para la protección de un posible impacto de un meteoro o asteroide. Pero es mejor prevenir que lamentar.

    Yo al menos tengo una humilde idea. Aparte de esa misión Dart, porque no diseñan naves que se posen o se anclen sobre los asteroides. Naves con el suficiente combustible y motores en su parte superior para generar un ensendido y empuje de forma controlada para cambiar el rumbo del asteroide. Y dependiendo de la masa del asteroide se enviarian 2, 4 o el número necesario de naves para lograr el empuje nesesario. A diario lo vemos en las naves que se acoplan a la estación espacial. Pequeños encendidos y chorros de sus motores laterales que van cambiando el curso de la nave. AHÍ LES DEJO SU ASIGNACIÓN O LA TESIS PARA UN ESTUDIANTE DE AERONAUTICA.

    I love John's input. He's an amazing host, I love how they have people who work in other departments doing their streams!!!!

    NASA: good news and bad news. Good news, the dart test was successful in nudging non-earth impacting asteroid….bad news it nudged it into a earth impacting asteroid., we're finished sorry

    What about stage 1 did the rocket landed?

  • Energy on January 15, 2022

    I think it's stupid to try and deflect the smallest asteroid, they should rocket it to close earth orbit and use it to build a star base or mother ship. There are not many small objects close by, look how far they travel to this one.

    I was standing on my back deck about a year ago and I saw a giant ball of fire climbing through the tree tops and getting smaller once it was above them. It turns out that I can see launches from Kennedy because my neighbor, a timber company, harvested the trees that stood in the way for the past 40 years. Kennedy is 155 miles from my house.
