Webb and Hubble space telescopes capture detailed views of the DART asteroid impact

These images, Hubble on the left and Webb on the right, show observations of the Didymos-Dimorphos system several hours after NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) deliberately smashed into a small moon asteroid. It was the world’s first test of kinetic impact technology using a spacecraft to deflect an asteroid by adjusting its orbit. Webb …

An ‘exceptionally rare’ meteorite impact crater found in the Twin Cities metro

An exceptionally rare meteorite crater was discovered in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota, and its size indicates that if it had struck today, it would have wiped out a massive portion of the Twin Cities. The crater was discovered several hundred feet underground by researchers from the University of Minnesota Geological Survey (MGS). It is the …

An explosion of blue light flashing in space.

Hubble and Web images reveal that the effect of DART was greater than expected: ScienceAlert

The James Webb and Hubble telescopes on Thursday revealed their first images of a spacecraft that deliberately collided with an asteroid, with astronomers noting that the impact appears to be much larger than expected. Global telescopes set their sights on the space rock Demorphos earlier this week to conduct a historic test of Earth’s ability …

Exploring Ceres in the laboratories

Scientists determine the source of the unexpected geological activity of the planet Ceres

The dwarf planet Ceres is featured in these false-color designs, which highlight differences in surface materials. Images from NASA’s Dawn spacecraft were used to create a movie of Ceres’ orbit, followed by an overhead view of Ocator Crater, home to Ceres’ brightest region. Credit: NASA/JPL Modeling reveals how Ceres is triggering unexpected geological activity. According …
