Armageddon practice: An anti-asteroid vehicle launched into space

by time news

NASA today (Wednesday) launched a special spacecraft from California, designed to collide with an asteroid in order to divert it from its orbit.

The spacecraft’s journey will take about a year and it is supposed to collide with an asteroid about 160 meters in diameter and repel it from its orbit. To reassure the public, NASA made it clear that no asteroid is currently making its way to Earth.

Itai Nevo, editor-in-chief and space reporter at the Davidson Institute, the educational arm of the Weizmann Institute of Science, told Kalman Liebskind and Assaf Lieberman on the Kalman-Lieberman program here on NASA’s experiment that “the spacecraft will collide in about a year with a small asteroid . His attack on the country could destroy a city. “
