Science fiction meets science fact – Netflix’s upcoming movie “Don’t Look Up” is a fictional story about three scientists warning the planet about a doomsday comet. NASA’s upcoming DART mission is a real spacecraft that will intentionally crash itself into an asteroid as a test to see if this could be a viable way to move its motion in space. Hear from movie director Adam McKay as he compares the two.

DART is a spacecraft designed to impact an asteroid as a test of technology. DART’s target asteroid is NOT a threat to Earth. This asteroid system is a perfect testing ground 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.
