No more meteors: Earth is not in danger!

No more meteors: Earth is not in danger!

There are many meteors orbiting in the sky we see above. Some of it continues to crash into the Earth. But our atmosphere protects us from them. But if large meteorites hit the earth, it becomes a great danger to the earth.
To prevent this, the space organizations of various countries are making various efforts. NASA, the American space agency, is also engaged in a similar effort. NASA has now succeeded in an experiment to alter the trajectory of asteroids by sending them flying at high speeds to make them collide with Earth.

In the case of the 760 meter circumference 'Didymos' orbiting 7 million miles in space9 months ago, NASA launched a spacecraft called the 'Torteor Deflection Test' (DART) to redirect the asteroid. A small planet called Morphos orbiting this meteorite was first targeted and crashed into it at a speed of 22 km. In this, Didymos has moved away from the asteroid's orbit and into a new orbit. With this, NASA's first phase test has been successful.
Because of this, scientists are happy that there is nothing to fear even seeing large meteors coming to collide with the earth. Congratulations to NASA for this great achievement. The world salutes America!
