NASA team believes it will successfully kill its DART spacecraft after asteroid collision

NASA’s spacecraft DART will crash into an asteroid to test planetary defense theories. Often associated with bad news, hearing the term “signal loss” will be a reason to celebrate for the team behind NASA’s DART spacecraft, which is scheduled to hit an asteroid on Monday. Most NASA spacecraft last for years or even decades, but …

Dwarf planet collision may have sent strange superhard diamonds to Earth

Strange hexagonal diamonds may have been thrown into space when a dwarf planet collided with a large asteroid about 4.5 billion years ago. New research identifies hexagonal diamonds, also known as lonsdaleite, as a rare class meteorite This may come from the mantle of the dwarf planet. Like graphite, charcoal, and diamond, Lonsdaleite is a …
