This is the mission designed to deflect dangerous asteroids coming towards Earth

When Armageddon was released in 1998, the option of avoiding the approach of an asteroid to the Earth seemed unlikely if it was not a fiction. If one of these objects gets close enough to collide, you will have no choice but to cross your arms lest it be too devastating.

However, over time, the POT and the European Space Agency (ESA) have designed projects to detect and prevent such approaches should they occur.

Currently, the most advanced company is NASA, which has started its first experiment with the launch of the mission dart. But China could soon join her on a similar mission; which, if it gets all the necessary permissions, could launch in 2025.

According to Global Times, this new mission was announced last Sunday, April 24, by the deputy director of the China National Space Administration, Wu Yanhua. In the same announcement, he made it clear that they have yet to choose which asteroid to target, but have been looking for one that could pose a threat to Earth.
