NASA relives most of the Kerbal Moon landings by throwing spacecraft at the rocks

NASA plans to prevent potentially dangerous asteroids from flying to Earth, including throwing spacecraft at them until they disappear.

Crashing a spacecraft into a large rock is a method that most Kerbal space program players are undoubtedly familiar with, but the key difference here is that NASA did this deliberately. The mission is called DART, which means double asteroid redirection test (thank you, Living science), it will be the first demonstration of dynamic impact technology that changes the motion of asteroids.
