DART will crash into Dimorphos, changing the orbit of the small moon.

NASA says DART asteroid smash mission ‘expected to have impact’

An asteroid 7 million miles (11 million kilometers) from Earth hits Earth in just a few days.

The agency’s long-awaited double asteroid redirection test (dart), if all goes according to plan, the mission will collide with the asteroid moon Dimorphos on Monday (September 26). Launched atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket on November 23, 2021, the DART mission is now flying through deep space to the binary near-Earth asteroid (65803) Didymos and its moon Dimorphos.
