Researcher Toni Santana-Ros collaborates with the DART mission to deflect an asteroid from its orbit
Bits of interplanetary dust and rock hit Earth all the time. Most of these are harmless and burn up in our planet’s atmosphere.

But with the right technology and knowledge of asteroids’ orbits, scientists can anticipate and prevent an impact by defecting an asteroid just enough to avoid a collision.
