Sixty-five million years ago, an asteroid struck Earth. Today, NASA strikes back.
At 7:14 pm EDT, the DART spacecraft will intentionally collide with asteroid Dimorphos in a test to see if human tech can change an asteroid’s trajectory.
The technique could be used in the future to divert dangerous space rocks.

Monday, Sept. 26 (DART Impact Day) Schedule
6 p.m. EDT – Live coverage of DART’s impact with the asteroid Dimorphos will air on NASA TV and the agency’s website. The public also can watch live on agency social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
7:14 p.m. EDT – DART’s kinetic impact with asteroid Dimorphos.
8 p.m. EDT – Media briefing at Johns Hopkins APL to hear from mission experts immediately following DART’s successful impact with asteroid Dimorphos.
Will it fail or succeed? Live coverage begins at 5:30 pm EDT on NASA TV.
If you want you can also follow LIVE the images acquired by DRACO before the kinetic impact here (read below for more information):
If you want this guy is already broadcasting it live! Impact at 7:14 pm EDT!
What is DART?
NASA’s first flight mission for planetary defense, the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) seeks to test and validate a method to protect Earth in case of an asteroid impact threat.
The DART mission aims to shift an asteroid’s orbit through kinetic impact – specifically, by smashing a spacecraft into the smaller member of the binary asteroid system Didymos.
You will never go without electricity with this portable power station!
DART is a low-cost spacecraft. The main structure of the spacecraft is a box with dimensions of roughly 1.2 × 1.3 × 1.3 meters (3.9 × 4.3 × 4.3 feet), from which other structures extend to result in measurements of roughly 1.8 meters (5.9 feet) in width, 1.9 meters (6.2 feet) in length, and 2.6 meters (8.5 feet) in height. The spacecraft has two very large solar arrays that when fully deployed are each 8.5 meters (27.9 feet) long.
DART will navigate to crash itself into Dimorphos at a speed of approximately 6.1 kilometers (3.8 miles) per second. The total mass of the DART spacecraft was approximately 1,345 pounds (610 kilograms) at launch and will be roughly 1260 pounds (570 kilograms) at impact.
DART carries both hydrazine propellant (about 110 pounds, or 50 kilograms) for spacecraft maneuvers and attitude control, and xenon (about 130 pounds, or 60 kilograms) to operate the ion propulsion technology demonstration engine.
Get ready! You should always have your emergency kit ready…
The DART payload consists of a single instrument, the Didymos Reconnaissance and Asteroid Camera for Optical navigation (DRACO).
DRACO is a high-resolution imager derived from the New Horizons LORRI camera to support navigation and targeting, to measure the size and shape of the asteroid target, and to determine the impact site and geologic context.
DRACO is a narrow-angle telescope with a 208-millimeter aperture and field of view of 0.29 degrees. It has a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) detector and sophisticated onboard image processor to determine the relative location of Dimorphos and support SMART Nav.
The images acquired by DRACO before the kinetic impact will be streamed back to Earth in real time. In its final moments, DRACO will help characterize the impact site by providing high-resolution, scientific images of the surface of Dimorphos.
DART will also carry a CubeSat contributed by Agenzia Spaziale Italiana (ASI), named LICIACube (Light Italian CubeSat for Imaging of Asteroids). The DART spacecraft deployed LICIACube 15 days prior to the DART impact on Dimorphos.
Stock up on Iodine tablets for the next nuclear disaster…
LICIACube will capture images of the DART impact, the resulting ejecta cloud, and potentially a glimpse of the impact crater on the surface of Dimorphos.
LICIACube has two instruments: LEIA (LICIACube Explorer Imaging for Asteroid), a narrow field panchromatic camera to acquire images from long distance with a high spatial resolution and LUKE (LICIACube Unit Key Explorer), a wide field RGB camera, allowing a multicolor analysis of the asteroidal environment.

The NASA thing is incredibly fake. The camera is even called DRACO, hello?
@ Fifty…you are very-well informed. Most people, even if they know “some” truth in this world, are totally oblivious to the lies and deception regards NASA and its satanic origins.
I’m not sure if I can share links here, but you guys will love this 8-minute exposé of the DART mission. I highly recommend it.
That was a good sarcastic video.
I thought so, too. LOL That channel–“Hugo Talks”–says a lot of common-sense stuff. I like watching his vids, and I’ve seen him grow over the years. Not sure if he’s still on youtube, but definitely on bitchute.
I usually go with the hypothesis that if yootube bans somebody they must be worrisome to the technofascists.
Well, I have been half-listeneing to the AM talk radio news blowhards, and not a peep about the success or failure of this expensive FART-DART exercise?
Yep. This will not work. The meteor will continue to go towards whatever gravity field captures it.
Interesting. These mostly godless scientists think they can alter the path of an asteroid. It won’t matter, as anything man made vs. God will lose in the end. If God wishes to crash an asteroid into earth, then it will happen. There isn’t any science BS that will stop it.
Meh, I scrubbed the DRACO FART animation from beginning to end. I think this is a hoax. It wouldn’t be the first one either. nasa has been sucking up money forever. Where does it go? Probably money is funneled into the D.U.M.B.S underground military bases, and into the pockets of satanic elitists. I remember watching a bunch of yoootoob videos on how all this crap has been faked for decades.
You may have a point. Since the Russians shut down the Ukraine Money laundring operation for the Cabal, a couple of sources think NASA is being used for some of that now. What happened to their new Moon Rocket??
Yeah Gary. Also, nasa started with nazi (we imported) from operation paperclip.We didn’t win WWII. Most of what we have been
soldtold, —history, science is all fraud and disinformation. That’s why I only put my faith in Christ—not in the traditions of man.
Rest went into the CIA
