NASA to relive most Kerbal Mun landings by throwing spaceship at rock



NASA has a plan to stop potentially dangerous asteroids headed towards Earth, and it involves throwing spacecraft at them until they go away.

Crash spacecraft into big rock is an approach most Kerbal Space Program players will no doubt be familiar with, but the key difference here is NASA is doing it on purpose. The mission is called DART, meaning Double Asteroid Redirection Test (thanks, Live Science), and it’s set to become the first demonstration of the kinetic impactor technique to change the motion of an asteroid.
