NASA has today launched the first of its kind 'Dart mission' to save the Earth. The spacecraft took off from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California at 11.50 pm Indian time. This spacecraft will go into space and collide with a meteorite. After the collision, it can be ascertained how much the speed and direction of a meteorite can be changed so that it does not hit the earth. NASA has named this mission DART (Double Asteroid Redirection Test). In the mission, NASA will try to find out how a meteorite coming towards Earth from space can be stopped from hitting the Earth. As part of the mission, NASA has built a spacecraft. This spacecraft will collide with a meteorite named Didymos. After this, it will be found out what has changed in the speed and direction of Didymos due to the collision. On this basis, it will be calculated that how much can change the direction and speed of any meteorite. The cost of the mission is about Rs 2,000 crore. The spacecraft will hit a meteorite called Didymos. Didymos is a two-part meteorite, first detected in 1996? The major part of this meteorite is spread in about 780 meters, which is named Didymos. At the same time, the small part is spread in about 160 meters, which is called dimorphous. At present, the smaller part (Dimorphus) is orbiting the larger part (Dydymos).
