If you’ve ever watched a movie like “Deep Impact” or “Armageddon” and wondered what the plan would be if an existence-threatening asteroid were really headed for the Earth, NASA is about to answer your question. NASA is launching its Double Asteroid Redirection Test, or DART mission, on Monday, Sept. 26 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. ET, and will simulcast live on the Discovery Channel and the Science Channel. You can watch the mission live with a Subscription to Sling TV (50% OFF).

About ‘Asteroid Impact Live: Dart Mission’

The special and its simulcast coverage will feature footage from the NASA feed of DART as the mission undergoes the final leg of its journey to make the first attempt to alter the course of an asteroid by intentionally crashing a spacecraft into it. The spacecraft has a camera with sending images back to Earth that will provide live, stunning visuals to the Discovery and Science audiences during the mission’s approach to the two asteroids.

NASA’s DART Mission, built and managed for NASA by the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, is humanity’s first attempt to change the motion of an asteroid in space by intentionally crashing a spacecraft into it. DART’s target asteroid is not a threat to Earth. However, it is the perfect testing ground to see if this method of asteroid deflection – known as the kinetic impactor technique – would be a viable way to protect our planet if an asteroid on a collision course with Earth were discovered in the future.
