This is the moment nasa crashed a spacecraft into an asteroid

Bloomberg Technology published this video item, entitled “This Is the Moment NASA Crashed a Spacecraft Into an Asteroid” – below is their description.

A NASA spacecraft rammed an asteroid at blistering speed Monday in an unprecedented dress rehearsal for the day a killer rock menaces Earth.

The galactic slam occurred at a harmless asteroid 7 million miles (11.3 million kilometers) away, with the spacecraft named Dart plowing into the space rock at 14,000 mph (22,500 kph).

Scientists expected the impact to carve out a crater, hurl streams of rocks and dirt into space and, most importantly, alter the asteroid’s orbit.
