James Webb Space Telescope captured NASA’s asteroid-smashing mission!

Last November, NASA tasked its Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) spacecraft to begin on an asteroid-smashing mission, and on September 26, 2022, it successfully crashed into the small asteroid known as Dimorphos, obliterating it.

While the spacecraft may be no more, the images of its collision both before, during, and after the act was captured by not only the spacecraft itself, but the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), and the Hubble Space Telescope’s camera too!
