A back view animation of NASA’s first planetary defense test mission, the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART), which collided with the asteroid moonlet Dimorphos. Also in the video is the larger parent asteroid Didymos, which Dimorphos orbits. This impact event marked humanity’s first time deliberately changing the motion of an object in space and the first full-scale demonstration of asteroid deflection technology.
