One year after the NASA/DART impact What do we know so far and what remains to be known?

Gonzalo Tancredi, professor at the University of the Republic (Montevideo, Uruguay), and is going to give a talk/seminar this Friday, January 26, 2024 about the scientific project carried out a year ago with the NASA/DART mission.

On September 26, 2022, NASA’s DART space probe impacted the Dimorphos satellite of the asteroid (65803) Didymos. The objective was to test the technique for deflecting asteroids on a collision course with Earth called the kinetic impactor. Minutes later the LICIACube probe of the Agenzia Spaziale Italiana took spectacular images of the event.
