The #DARTmission is @NASA’s first #PlanetaryDefense test mission and will impact an asteroid to demonstrate a technique that could be used in the future to protect Earth from a potential impact. #CountdownToLaunch on November 24! Learn more: https://t.co/nPcmHQsAoy

On Aug. 14, 2021, a small near-Earth asteroid (NEA) passed our planet at a distance of over 1 million miles. This asteroid wasn’t a threat to Earth, but its approach was historic - it marks the 1,000th NEA to be observed by planetary radar in 50+ years: https://t.co/pEDobeNo4G

Will an asteroid ever hit Earth? There are no known #asteroid impact threats to Earth for the next century, but small meteoroids disintegrate in Earth’s atmosphere all the time! Dr. Kelly Fast, one of our #PlanetaryDefense experts, tells us more: https://t.co/DdVoFv4n4w

Do you know the difference between asteroids & comets? Asteroids are usually mostly rock, & comets are usually mostly ice - one reason for their "tails." But, one #asteroid is exhibiting comet-like behavior, & scientists may have finally revealed why: https://t.co/C5vkkr7wBs

#DARTMission Milestone Update: Two of DART’s key technologies were successfully integrated into the spacecraft—its Roll-Out Solar Arrays (ROSA) and Didymos Reconnaissance and Asteroid Camera for Optical (DRACO) navigation system! Read more about it here: https://t.co/FC4OwmpzG3

.@NASA’s #OSIRISREx mission is currently on its way back to earth with a sample from #asteroid Bennu, and the Center for Near-Earth Object Studies at @NASAJPL used data during OSIRIS-REx’s visit to help refine Bennu’s future orbit through the year 2300.

When most near-Earth #asteroids pass by Earth, they often do so at a distance farther away than our Moon. But how far away is the Moon from Earth, and did any asteroids pass closer than this distance? Learn this and more in this month's #PlanetaryDefense by the Numbers!

When the @NASASolarSystem #DARTMission begins its approach toward Dimorphos, it will be millions of miles away and need to autonomously navigate itself to stick its kinetic impact. But how?🧐 Learn more about SMART Nav—the technology enabling DART—here: https://t.co/iMem5a68Yz

NASA’s #MissionToPsyche will journey to a unique metal asteroid orbiting the Sun between Jupiter and Mars. Because of its exposed nickel iron core, studying this world could provide some clues about the formation of our solar system: https://t.co/Fp9TxYdYrD #AsteroidDay

Do we know about ALL the asteroids? We know about the vast majority of larger ones and none of those pose a threat, but space is big, so we're always on the lookout. Our @AsteroidWatch expert Dr. Amy Mainzer explains: https://t.co/ElpNwQxF2l

Thanks to #OSIRISREx, we’ve learned more about the variables that affect an asteroid's path through space, including factors you’d think of, like gravity, and factors you might not, like sunlight! #ToBennuAndBack https://t.co/q40wS3wfLv
