SpaceX is targeting Tuesday, November 23 for Falcon 9’s launch of NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission from Space Launch Complex 4 East (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. The instantaneous launch window is at 10:21 p.m. PST (6:21 UTC on November 24), and a backup opportunity is available on Wednesday, November 24 at 10:20 p.m. PST (6:20 UTC on November 25).

This will be the third flight for this Falcon 9’s first stage booster, which previously supported launch of Sentinel-6A and a Starlink mission. Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage will land on the Of Course I Still Love You droneship, which will be located in the Pacific Ocean.

DART is humanity’s first planetary defense test mission to see if intentionally crashing a spacecraft into an asteroid is an effective way to change its course, should an Earth-threatening asteroid be discovered in the future.

Space X does almost everything right except the cameras on stage one. There has only been a few times we have gotten to see the landing on the deck of the drone ship. How about it Space X spend a little more money on the stage one camera’s please.

So great to see SpaceX not only provide fast, frequent and reliable access to low Earth orbit, but also science missions across the Solar system. After all, that is what 'exploration' in Space Exploration Technologies Corp. really means. Thanks SpaceX, you rock!

You know Russia or China could care less about "Planetary defense" LUL Esp Russia with their latest anti-sat test that caused all the debris. War with Russia and China will change a lot of things about SpaceX, just you watch. I find these missions incredibly hilarious because the value of ones life in America means absolutely nothing anymore.

We shouldn’t be messing with asteroid orbits. Even if we’re just knocking a smaller asteroid around a larger one, there’s no need for this test. Asteroids large enough to threaten Earth show up on astronomically huge timescales. Even the slightest risk of speeding up that timescale isn’t worth it when we could wait a few decades and have dramatically better technology.

Why did the separation of DART from stage 2 took place at this point (1:18:46) and not earlier or later? Is stage 2 getting deorbited? If not, why don't let it be attached (more mass – more pushing force at impact)?

DART MISSION COMMENTS: I think AdAstra's gravitational tug approach is far safer and more efficient, and here's why: many asteroids are not entirely solid - theyre often partially or completely comprised of a "rock pile" of debris that slowly grows over eons like a cosmic roomba under its own microgravity. Hitting it with a kinetic impactor forcefully enuf to make a significant alteration in its orbit around the sun could very well disrupt it (and the less lead time you have, the harder you have to hit something to move it enuf to matter). With sufficient disruption, an asteroid changes from a high caliber bullet to a shotgun blast, making the damage of inpact affect a wider area.

In contrast, a gravitational tug involves sending a fuel tank of xenon (read: fuel doubling as gravitational mass) with a solar array and a pair of electro-plasma ion thrusters into close proximity of the asteroid, with the probe in an upstream direction but on the opposite side from the earth. It then gets as close as possible so it can use an angled pair of thrusters (plus a 3rd in opposition, if needed for course/dist correction) to maintain distance against the gravitational pull of the asteroid, but angled enuf so the exhaust goes around the asteroid. That station keeping thrust, evrn though small, works the same as a tug towing a barge, and with a long enuf lead time, and enuf fuel, that small but continuous thrust will alter the asteroids orbit to one that no longer intersects the earth. Problem solved, and no impact debris generated. Controllers can also adjust the direction of the effect as needed, which a kinetic impactor cannot do.

From a physics standpoint, its a much better approach.

if we can detect asteroids early enough we might be able to have a craft that could land on an asteroid and use its engine to provide steady thrust without blasting it apart.

I don't understand how a asteroid could earth, we are doing laps around the sun while endlessly speeding through space without being struck by an asteroid. It doesn't seem like asteroids are much of a threat.

Maybe the most importand research that we are conducting EVER and that is Aseroid redirection.
There is no point doing science on this planet if at any point a single asteroid can destroy life as we know it!

what you don't know is that those asteroids are going to hit earth...... they call it a test but in 10 months the world is going to be over if this doesn't work. they don't tell us as we would panic

Noob/dum question alert, but if there is no atmosphere in space, why does the speed of the second stage slow down the further it gets from earth? I thought there would be a constant speed.

Pointless test for a pointless scenario. Most asteroids that have a harmful impact are too small to be effectively detected and destroyed while the Dinosaur extinction size asteroid will have zero chance of being affected at all even if detected.
