Scientists hail DART success 6 months after asteroid crash


NASA’s dramatic Double Asteroid Redirection Check (DART) was a rousing success, scientists say. 

Earlier than the DART spacecraft deliberately crashed onto Dimorphos on Sept. 26, 2022, scientists knew little or no in regards to the asteroid’s dimension, form or composition. Six months later, they now have the clearest view but of its whole physique, which is 580 ft (177 meters) vast.
