Double Asteroid Redirection Test Current Affairs, GK & News

Double Asteroid Redirection Test

The Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) is a testing method to deflect or defend the near-earth objects. The DART will deliberately (wantedly) crash a spacecraft into a double asteroid didymos. The Didymos is potentially a hazardous asteroid. The test will check if the spacecraft will hit and deflect the asteroid away from the earth successfully. ..
