launching the dark mission aboard spacex's falcon nine rocket lift off the falcon nine and dark. the mission lifting off last year has been hurtling towards two asteroids with intertwined orbits, called didymus and amorphous, nearly seven million miles from earth amorphous is orbiting around didymus. kind of like the moon orbits around the earth. morpheus maybe smaller than didymus, but it's still big over 500 ft. wide about the size of a large football stadium. a rock of that size hitting the earth. would have enormous amount of energy. if it hits here. something uh, like that would would level small, state small country. yeah you heard that right? a small countries. these two asteroids are not a threat to worth. but scientists say the pair have perfect conditions for this first of its kind test. it's really a zero risk high reward test of our ability to defend our planet we're gonna do

is going to run a small spacecraft into the smaller the two asteroids and it is going to change its velocity, a small amount. these two asteroids are slowly moving around each other, so that tiny little change of velocity that you make to one asteroid, you can see it almost immediately to make the collision happened monday. a smaller probe will be jettisoned from the larger spacecraft ramming into the asteroid. nasa will be relying on smart nav technology that includes a sun sensor star tracker. and roll out solar arrays to keep the spacecraft light, but it comes with a catch. about two minutes out. we have to stop maneuvering and we're moving at six kilometers a second. so if you actually look at that on the map it's as if we were over the indy 500 when we stop maneuvering and then we simply have to coast all the way to baltimore. and we have to land inside camden yards . it's a remarkable amount of precision for a small nudge that could have giant implications
