NASA to test planetary defense technique to avoid potential asteroid collisions



The Double Asteroid Redirection Test consists of crashing a spacecraft into an asteroid to shift its orbit, redirecting it away from Earth.

  1. Are these people Mad! they're interfering with nature without knowin what the ouicome will be

  2. So what happens if it breaks the astroid in half n half goes but half comes at us. Also what if the explosion brakes the astroid into little bits wouldn't the satellite come at us or some of the astroid

  3. "This is the only natural disaster that we humans can do something about."

    Well, that is until we start nuking hurricanes…

  4. what they're not telling us is it really headed for earth

  5. It’s a “Mostly peaceful” asteroid CMON Man!! 💀

  6. The question about are we alone will be answered when the decision to do the most unfathomable Act that Mankind has Ever Done is DONE . THE CONSEQUENCES OF BELIEVING THAT THE COSMOS IS A PART OF THE DOMAIN OF HUMAN BEINGS , AND THE RESULTS OF SUCH A ABOMINABLE BELIEVE IS THAT THOSE WHO HAVE NO SAY IN THE DECISION WILL PAY THE PRICE JUST LIKE THOSE WHO HAVE CREATED PLACES LIKE THE BIKINI ISLAND'S
    THREE MILE ISLAND ,
    CHERNOBYL AND FUKUSHIMA ! THE DECISION THAT CAUSED THE EXTINCTION OF THE DINOSAURS CAME FROM THE COSMOS AND ENTER INTO THE HEAVENS OF THE SKY , AND FOR MANKIND TO KNOW THAT THERE ARE THINGS CALLED THE INEVITABLE WILL STILL TRY TO SPIT IN THE FACE OF THE COSMIC WIND .

  7. I think this is cool. NASA is sending up a space probe to fire Bruce Willis into an asteroid, to change its trajectory. If that doesn't do it, then they'll fire Ben Affleck into it, as a backup. Godspeed NASA!!

  8. Just send bruce willis he stop those asteroid

  9. ABC will now forever only be known for being just another propaganda spewing msm bot network for the fascist OBiden regime, how sad 🥲 that is your legacy now..
    Disabling the dislike counter because you know the ratio isn’t in your favor

  10. Nothing that man throws together will Stop what he has Coming.So get ready!

  11. Kinetic energy? Impact can chip off and possibly land in the pacific ocean…

  12. What if blows up and creates too much uncontrollable debris?

  13. We NEED a few asteroid impacts

  14. What about the catastrophic overheating of the planet that will kill us all…

  15. I believe it was Billy Bob Thornton who said that's like shooting a beebee gun at a freight train?

  16. It's about time they have come up with a contingety plan

  17. Size matters, even in space. So if you cant change the path of an object that's far out. Won't earth's gravity just pull that object in.

  18. Asteroid impacts? You mean China space weapons?

  19. What if it pushes it to another planet and destroys it? Earths civilization will be affected also. And we all would be dead anyway. Just not as quickly

  20. This will prove whether or not we truly understand how gravity works. Will this hit slow down the asteroid enough to follow a different orbit now directly towards our planet?

  21. As long as they calculate good, and not changing the trajectory by mistake for the asteroid to finaly hit the earth lol

  22. Wait, they're literally just going to ram a satellite into an asteroid?

  23. Dang it — I was counting on a large scale natural disaster to use as a catalyst for global domination.

  24. What a complete waste of my American tax dollars we already have a something that can protect the earth from space rocks it's called thermo nuclear weapons which by the way we Americans have 6000 nuclear weapons that can be used to protect earth.

  25. Should also use an explosive device to test the fragmentation theory.
