NASA and Space-X joined together to launch what NASA calls a mission of “planetary defense.” DART or the Double Asteroid Redirection Test, took to the skies on November 23rd from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. DART will intentionally run into an asteroid called Dimorphos at 15,000 miles per hour, attempting to move it off course. This asteroid is not currently an actual threat to Earth. The Double Asteroid Redirection Test costs about $330 million.
