i was looking for where all the JWST posts were and couldn't find them, so this is a new thread.
I just watched a delayed video of the live feed and WOW. Andy Chang, who thought up the whole DART program while excercising one day, was in the Zoom channels as it hit, reacting to the images as we were reacting.
They are now busy waiting to measure the orbit change and get images from the cubesat photos, but the DART pictures of the egg-shaped subasteroid covered with boulders were exciting to watch.
they are expecting the change to be about 10 minutes of the 11+ to 12 hour orbit around the bigger asteroid, Didimeus. spellings are phonetic estimates, sorry about that.

Cronkite: And darts the way it is
I've got to look this DART thing up on google, unless you can explain the significance of it. Is it a probe designed to land on an asteroid?

Oh, Phat you are so disconnected from reality. How could you not know what DART is?

Re: Cronkite: And darts the way it is
jar would accuse me of spending all my time on Christian radio, but the truth is I just work a lot and normally don't have much interest in science ...until Cleverbot came along!
I suppose I can google what I need to know.

First Knowledge of DART Mission
I just watched the live feed. Incredible and a testimony to technology! I was more interested in the reactions of the team after the mission successfully ended. They have a lot emotionally invested in their work and it is fascinating to watch! I suppose that if it someday saved the planet it would shed a tear the world over.

Re: First Knowledge of DART Mission
do you now know what it is?
it's Step One in developing a planetary defense system for Earth.
can a kinetic object colliding into a threatening asteroid deflect it enough to make it miss?
they should have some analysis today.

DART has pretty much been headline news for the last day or two.
