SpaceX is less than an hour away from its 10:21 p.m. PST (6:21 UTC on November 24) Falcon 9 launch of NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission, from Space Launch Complex 4 East (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Space Force Base in California.

This will be the third launch for this particular Falcon 9 booster, B1063, which previously launched the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich and a Starlink mission. This Falcon 9 booster will be landing onto the Of Course I Still Love You droneship in the Pacific Ocean.

“DART is humanity’s first planetary defense test mission to see if intentionally crashing a spacecraft into an asteroid is an effective way to change its course, should an Earth-threatening asteroid be discovered in the future,” explains SpaceX. This is like science fiction turned real life. Go SpaceX and NASA!
