NASA's Dart due to impact Dimorphos at 23:14pm ( Sept. 26, 2022.)

Quote:
NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission, will test a method of deflecting an asteroid for planetary defense, using the "kinetic impactor" technique.

DART MISSION KEY FACTS
Launched: Nov. 24, 2021 at 1:20 a.m. EDT (0620 GMT)

Launch site: Space Launch Complex 4, Vandenberg Space Force Base in California

Rocket: SpaceX Falcon 9

Target: Didymos and its moonlet Dimorphos.

Target distance from Earth: 6.8 million miles (11 million kilometers)

Estimated cost: $313.9 million (227.9 million)

DART impact: Sept. 26, 2022.

DART will slam into a small asteroid Dimorphos in a bid to change the moonlet's orbital speed by a fraction of a percent according to NASA. Though Dimorphos poses no threat to Earth, the ambitious mission mimics what NASA scientists would do if an asteroid were headed toward Earth.

The collision is expected to occur at 7:14 p.m. EDT (23:14pm GMT) on Sept. 26, 2022.

It hit it and its now been diverted towards Earth. So the asteroid diverting theory has been proved. Well done lads.

Obviously fake. It was just a Ferrero Rocher.
