The company’s Elon musk will try to change the trajectory of the asteroid with the Falcon 9 rocket
Space X slam it into the asteroid in order to Nasa, the mission of the DART. It is planned that the spacecraft remote control will collide with an asteroid Didymoon at a speed of 6 km/hour and at a distance of 11 million km from Earth, according to spacenews.
Then the astronomers change the orbit of a celestial body resulting from the blow.
The main task that stands before astrophysicists is to evaluate the effectiveness of the approach in the destruction of asteroids that potentially threaten Earth.
The total amount of the project is $69 million this amount directly to the launch of the Falcon 9 rocket will $61 million
“SpaceX is proud to continue the successful collaboration with NASA to conduct this important interplanetary mission,” said SpaceX President Gwen Shotwell.
