We only report on Florida Space Coast events but this mission is simply too cool to ignore! Spacenews.com sums it up this way, “A SpaceX Falcon 9 successfully launched a NASA mission that will deliberately collide with a near Earth asteroid to test a technique that could be used to deflect the trajectory of any future asteroid on a collision course with the Earth.” What an action packed statement!
