Its goal is to deflect the orbit of the smaller body of the double Didymosasteroids between Earth and Mars via an impact by one spacecraft.
During the three-day International AIDA Workshop in Rome, the participants will share progress on the two spacecrafts, Double Asteroid Impact Test (DART) by NASA, and Hera by ESA.
It sounds like something out of your favorite sci-fi story, but NASA and ESA (European Space Agency) are teaming up to help fight against any asteroids that could threaten Earth. For this objective, a spacecraft will be made to crash into the asteroid and later, another spacecraft will reach the asteroid to study the crash site and gather necessary data on effects of the collision, according to ESA.
An Italian-made miniature CubeSat called LICIACube would travel alongside to capture the moment of impact. The ESA will start its part of the mission called Hera to perform a close-up survey of the post-impact crater. Hera will be a part of the new ESA Space Safety Programme.
The Asteroid Impact Deflection Assessment (AIDA)-a collaboration between the two space agencies-is created to demonstrate that such a technique could work if we need to protect our planet from a collision with a large space object.
Une ancienne gloire espagnole retrouvée morte
Un hélicoptère et des drones munis de caméras thermiques avaient été utilisés pour explorer les zones les plus escarpées. La dépouille de l'ancienne skieuse retrouvée, l'enquête pour déterminer les causes de son décès va pouvoir commencer.
HERA will also deploy a pair of its own mini satellites to perform the first asteroid radar drill that can gather information about its surface.
Its launch would then take place in October 2024 and the journey to its destination would take about two years.
"But flying the two missions together will greatly magnify their overall knowledge return".
The outcomes returned by Hera would enable researchers to model the effectivity of the collision better, to show this grand-scale experiment into a way which could be repeated as needed in the event of an actual threat.
'Our mission will take a look at a wide range of vital new applied sciences, together with deep area CubeSats, inter-satellite hyperlinks and autonomous image-based navigation strategies, whereas additionally offering us with priceless expertise of low-gravity operations'. An worldwide effort is the appropriate way forward - planetary defense is in everyone's interest. We can hope that scientist will crack a breakthrough with the results of the upcoming missions to protect us from the extraterrestrial things.
