NASA recently released photos of an experimental Double Asteroid Redirection Mission (DART) that would crash a spacecraft into an asteroid, and NASA’s science chief said it could “deflect” a potentially dangerous object as it lashes out toward Earth. We applauded your continued efforts to teach engineers how to “defend.”

Two observatories in southern Russia have discovered a new asteroid, 2022 SE37. Approaching Earth.

The asteroid tracked by the two observatories on October 1 has a diameter of 0.5 km and orbits the Sun in an elongated orbit with a period of 3.44 years, the Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics of the Russian Academy of Sciences confirmed. . on the telegram channel.

The Institute has revealed that asteroids pose no danger to Earth in the near future. The publication is also accompanied by images of the asteroid taken by the Kochevanchik village telescope and the Kuban State University telescope.

NASA Releases Space Telescope Photos of Asteroid Deflection Test
The new asteroid detection came when the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) recently released photos of an experimental mission. collide Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) Loading an asteroid onto a craft spacecraft.

Images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and its successor, the James Webb Space Telescope, show flares after the spacecraft’s high-speed collision with the asteroid Dimorphos orbiting the big rock Didymos on September 26.

The DART mission was designed to test the feasibility of deflecting a large asteroid or comet that was on a collision course with Earth. The latest experiments have been hailed by the US Space Agency as allowing scientists to gain knowledge of how such kinetic effects can change the orbits of asteroids.

Most near-Earth objects have orbits that don’t come too close to Earth, but a small minority are over 460 feet (140 m) in size and reach within 4.6 million miles (7.5 million km) of Earth. has a trajectory Earth’s orbit around the Sun – considered potentially dangerous. Asteroids and comets with orbits reaching within 30 million miles (48.3 million kilometers) of Earth are called near-Earth objects (NEOs). Therefore, NASA and other space organizations around the world have fulfilled their mission. identify threats From NEO, which can cause serious damage.
