Scientists hail DART success 6 months after asteroid crash

NASA’s dramatic Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) was a rousing success, scientists say. 

Before the DART spacecraft intentionally crashed onto Dimorphos on Sept. 26, 2022, scientists knew very little about the asteroid’s size, shape or composition. Six months later, they now have the clearest view yet of its entire body, which is 580 feet (177 meters) wide.
