NASA approved to test new technology that will PUNCH an asteroid headed toward Earth

It would be impressive if technology existed that could deflect an asteroid on a path toward Earth and save mankind from devastating impact. Well, NASA plans to test new technology that aims to do just that.

On Wednesday’s show, Pat Gray and Jeff Fisher detailed how NASA has approved a project called the Double Asteroid Redirection Test, the aim of which is to throw a “small” asteroid off course in October 2022.

Pat called the technology amazing and later added that it would be impressive if we have the capability to move an asteroid out of its flight path. Watch the clip for more from Pat.

LIVE VIDEO: SpaceX and NASA launch astronauts to space from US soil for the first time in nearly a decade

SpaceX and NASA are teaming up to make history today by launching astronauts into space from U.S. soil for the first time since 2011.

The SpaceX Demo-2 launch, scheduled for liftoff at 4:33 p.m. EDT from the Kennedy Space Center in Merritt Island, Florida, will also mark the first time that a privately developed spacecraft has sent humans into Earth’s orbit.

The mission will send two astronauts to the International Space Station in a Crew Dragon spacecraft atop a Falcon 9 rocket. The Crew Dragon is expected to dock to the space station at 11:29 a.m. EDT tomorrow.

If successful, the launch will be SpaceX’s first crewed mission to outer space in the company’s 18-year history.

On its website, SpaceX described the Demo-2 launch as “the final major test for SpaceX’s human spaceflight system to be certified by NASA for operational crew missions to and from the International Space Station.”

The flight will be piloted by astronauts Bob Behnken, 49, and Doug Hurley, 53, both of whom served as military test pilots before being selected to join NASA in the year 2000. The two are longtime friends who attended each others’ weddings, according to CNN.

In a news conference ahead of the launch, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said “this is a dream come true” for him and everyone at SpaceX, and not something that he “ever thought would actually happen.”

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will be onsite at the Kennedy Space Center for the launch.
