DART asteroid impact


I learned nerd for this.
Because it's humans that did this, something is going to go wrong. It's only a matter of time before this cosmic game of pinball will cause something big and killy to think Earth might be a nice place to visit. Little Dimorphis is going to collide with something that'll collide with something, and so on, until we're all DOOOOMMMEEEDDD!!!!

Other than that, this was an amazing achievement. Proof it can be done. Now to increase funding so we can improve the early warning systems. We need more eyes on the sky.

When they manage to knock an asteroid into another one so that the second one ends up falling into the sun then I'll be impressed - 8 ball in the corner pocket... :cool:
