DART mission ship to collide with asteroid

NASA’s DART mission will take off aboard a Falcon 9 rocket, from SpaceX, on November 23 from California, and aims to hit the asteroid Dimorphos at a speed of 23,800 kilometers per hour. The crash – scheduled for September 2022 – will be recorded by a CubeSat nanosatellite provided by the Italian Space Agency that will separate from DART shortly before impact to record what happened.
