NASA Dart Spacecraft: NASA Captures Amazing Pictures of Astronomical Event with Hubble and Webb Space Telescope
Planetary astronomer and mission leader Andy Rivkin of Johns Hopkins University said in a statement that this is an unprecedented view of an unprecedented event. All these pictures will help scientists learn more about the dimorphos of small asteroids, he said.
The whole world has great pictures of the collision of Asteroid that happened this week. This is the first test in itself to protect the planet. NASA on Thursday released photos of the dramatic event taken by the Hubble and Webb Space Telescopes.
The whole world saw the historical moment
Telescopes located on all seven continents of the world also saw this historic moment. When NASA's Dart spacecraft collided with a space rock in space. The spacecraft is about 11 million kilometers away from Earth. Changes in the orbit of the spacecraft are expected. The scientist will get information in this regard by November. The results of the demo between the spacecraft and the Asteroid will help scientists to face the Asteroid coming our way.
Experts called it an unprecedented incident
This is an unprecedented view of an unprecedented event, planetary astronomer and mission leader Andy Rivkin of Johns Hopkins University said in a statement. All these pictures will help scientists learn more about the dimorphos of small asteroids, he said. In the post-collision impact, small rock particles and dust spread out into space, he said. A bright light can be seen in the latest photos.
Binoculars will keep an eye for the next several weeks
The Hubble and Webb telescopes will continue to watch Dimorphos and its larger companion Didymos over the next several weeks. The Dart mission was launched last year at a cost of $325 million. The spacecraft is built and managed by Johns Hopkins's Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland.
