In a new experiment, NASA destroyed its spacecraft by hitting an asteroid. According to NASA reports, This rock in space is about 10 million kilometers away from the earth, with which the spacecraft was tested.
The entire mission was also recorded by the camera on the spacecraft. The experiment was observed by other space telescopes including the James Webb Telescope.
NASA has named this experiment the “DART mission”. The purpose of this NASA mission was to find out how difficult it would be to contain the energy of large space rocks if they were to hit Earth.
According to NASA’s Scientists’ report, in this experiment, the spacecraft has been hit only 17 meters from the center of the asteroid.
According to the scientists, after this experiment, this asteroid will start moving towards the orbit of its nearby asteroid Didymos for a few minutes every day.
