I’m watching @nasa  hit an asteroid Damn this is amazing. #dimorphos 

One month ago NASA's #DARTmission  changed the orbit of Dimorphos, find out more about the miniaturised James-Bond-style technology the #HeraMission  will use to explore the asteroid - a new episode of ‘The Incredible Adventures of Hera’! #PlanetaryDefense 

The Didymos-Dimorphos system is showing off after NASA's DART spacecraft hit it.

The image, released Thursday, is one of 18 observations that the Hubble telescope has made of the dimorphos'>Didymos-Dimorphos asteroid system since NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Test, or DART, mission crashed a probe into Dimorphos in September.

*NEW* @HUBBLE_space  images taken after @NASA 's Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission reveal the Dimorphos' alt='Didymos-Dimorphos' /'>#Didymos-Dimorphos  system now has two tails of dust, ejected from the impact on 27 September 2022 at 01:14 CEST 👉

NASA confirms that its DART spacecraft nudged the asteroid Dimorphos into a new orbit

Green Bank Telescope radar observations of the asteroid Dimorphos after it was deliberately struck by a NASA spacecraft on Sept. 26 were used to confirm the success of the first-ever full-scale demonstration of asteroid deflection technology.

The Double Asteroid Redirection Test successfully changed the trajectory of the asteroid Dimorphos when the NASA spacecraft intentionally slammed into the space rock on September 26, according to the agency.

NASA crashed a satellite into an asteroid called Dimorphos. Dimorphos orbits a larger asteroid, so it's impossible for the satellite to send its target into us.

This Oct. 8 image from the Hubble Space Telescope shows the debris trail from asteroid Dimorphos still visible 12 days after the impact of NASA's DART spacecraft in a first-of-its-kind planetary defense experiment. Read more:

We have impact! Around 7:14 p.m. EDT, the DART spacecraft crashed into the asteroid Dimorphos. What a watershed moment for planetary defense and all of humanity! Here’s my message to the @NASA’s#DARTmission  team.

IMPACT SUCCESS! Watch from #DARTMIssion ’s DRACO Camera, as the vending machine-sized spacecraft successfully collides with asteroid Dimorphos, which is the size of a football stadium and poses no threat to Earth.

This just in: The #DARTmission  impact is confirmed to have changed the orbit of moonlet Dimorphos around its asteroid Didymos. For the first time ever, humans changed the motion of a celestial object. More details:

NASA Administrator Bill Nelson says DART successfully changed the orbit of Dimorphos, decreasing its orbital period around Didymos from 11hrs 55 mins to 11hrs 23mins, a 32-minute change.

Join #DARTMission  experts on Tuesday, Oct. 11 at 2pm ET (1800 UTC) to learn the results of its impact with the distant asteroid Dimorphos—our first test of planetary defense: Remember: DART is a test and there are no known asteroid threats to Earth.

Live from @JHUAPL : Follow the real-time journey of the #DARTMission  spacecraft towards its planned impact with a non-hazardous asteroid Dimorphos in the world’s first planetary defense test.

Live: Hear from NASA and @JHUAPL  senior leaders following #DARTMission ’s successful impact with non-hazardous asteroid Dimorphos. Tune in:

Tonight, the world's first planetary defense test will take place, the Double Asteroid Redirection Test. At 7:14pm ET, DART’s impact will slow Dimorphos down, which will make it orbit Didymos faster. This technique could save Earth one day - the only preventable natural disaster.

LIVE: Watch as our #DARTMission  Spacecraft’s DRACO camera updates in real time as it approaches asteroid Dimorphos for intentional impact, 7 million miles (11 million kilometers) from Earth:

A NASA spacecraft is set to collide with a 525-foot asteroid named Dimorphos at 14,000 mph. Watch live.
