The Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART), @NASA's first #planetarydefense test mission, will impact an #asteroid to demonstrate a technique that could be used in the future to protect Earth from a potential impact. Learn more in this new @JHUAPL video!

In 2022, our DART mission will attempt to change the motion of a small moonlet, Dimorphos, that poses no threat to Earth. The demonstration will test a new asteroid deflection technology:
