NASA is simply days away from slamming a spacecraft into an asteroid 7 million miles (11 million kilometers) from Earth.

The company’s long-awaited Double Asteroid Redirection Check (DART) mission will affect with the asteroid moonlet Dimorphos on Monday (Sept. 26), if all goes in keeping with plan. The DART mission launched on Nov. 23, 2021 on prime of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and is now hurtling by way of deep house towards the binary near-Earth asteroid (65803) Didymos and its moonlet Dimorphos.
