For billions of years life on Earth has been at the mercy of cosmic events which could strike without warning and sometimes caused mass extinctions in the biosphere. However, humanity is now the first species to understand this, and next year a spacecraft is going to demonstrate that not only does humanity understand the problem, we can predict the events and will be able to prevent the events. This spacecraft is called the Double Asteroid Redirect Test, and it will literally move a mountain, just a little bit.
This is a truly profound capability that will ensure humanity has a bright and hopeful future!
Don’t forget to watch the #COSMOSFutureFair Presentation Day, September 21 at 9am PT on the FOXTV YouTube Page for a day of science demonstrations that will give us all hope for humanity.
