Behind the Spacecraft: Justyna Surowiec


NASA searches the skies every night to find, track and catalogue near-Earth objects. But what would they do if there were a threat? NASA is launching its first planetary defense test mission — DART — and Johns Hopkins APL public affairs officer Justyna Surowiec wants to make sure you know all about it. Explore the #DARTmission:

The DART mission is a test of a technique that could be used to mitigate the threat of an asteroid on a collision course with Earth should one be discovered in the future. DART’s target is not a threat to Earth. While no known asteroid larger than 140 meters in size has a significant chance to hit Earth for the next 100 years, only about 40 percent of those asteroids have been found as of October 2021.

  1. Hey NASA, why are you afraid of letting people comment on your Kamala Harris video? Why do you regard the opinions of regular people as a threat? Why does public sentiment have to be hidden from the eyes of your viewers?
