Weakness Of Asteroids Discovered; Could Save Planet In The Future
NASA’s Planetary Defense team recently did a test called DART and were able to change the path of an asteroid. A group of scientists in Australia looked at an old asteroid and found out that “rubble pile” asteroids, which are made of loose rocks and boulders, can last for billions of years. This means that if an asteroid is heading towards Earth and could be dangerous, it’s probably made of loose rocks, and a nuclear explosion near the asteroid could change it’s direction and miss Earth.
