ARROGANT MAN MESSING WITH GOD’S WORLD IS VERY DANGEROUS. NASA Spacecraft, Dart, Crashes Into Asteroid in So-Called Defense Test. Daniel Whyte III Says, NASA, This is Not Wise. You May be Making Things Worse Because if God Wants an Asteroid to Hit Earth as He Has Allowed in the Past, THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO STOP IT.
A NASA spacecraft rammed an asteroid at blistering speed Monday in an unprecedented dress rehearsal for the day a killer rock menaces Earth.
The galactic slam occurred at a harmless asteroid 7 million miles (9.6 million kilometers) away, with the spacecraft named Dart plowing into the space rock at 14,000 mph (22,500 kph). Scientists expected the impact to carve out a crater, hurl streams of rocks and dirt into space and, most importantly, alter the asteroid’s orbit.
“We have impact!” Mission Control’s Elena Adams announced, jumping up and down and thrusting her arms skyward as NASA’s Dart crashes into asteroid.
Telescopes around the world and in space aimed at the same point in the sky to capture the spectacle. The impact was immediately obvious — Dart’s radio signal abruptly ceased. It will be days or even weeks to determine how much the asteroid’s path was changed.
The $325 million mission was the first attempt to shift the position of an asteroid or any other natural object in space.
“We’re embarking on a new era of humankind,” said NASA’s Lori Glaze, planetary science division director.
Earlier in the day, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson reminded people via Twitter that, “No, this is not a movie plot.” He added in a prerecorded video: ”We’ve all seen it on movies like ‘Armageddon,’ but the real-life stakes are high.”
