4 Cosmic Event Ideas to Celebrate NASA’s DART Mission

September 27, 2022

NASA made history Monday, September 26th, successfully colliding its spaceship with an asteroid called Dimorphos in its Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART). What makes this test significant? It’s the first-time humanity has shown its ability to deflect an earth-threatening asteroid from hitting our planet.

“We’re embarking on a new era of humankind, an era in which we potentially have the capability to protect ourselves from something like a dangerous, hazardous asteroid impact,” said Lori Glaze, director of NASA’s Planetary Science Division.

With all the craziness going on in the world, this success unites us as humans and calls for celebration. From a giant version of Space Invaders to a 360 degree virtual reality experience, commemorate this monumental moment in history with four out of this world experiences.
