MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - September 26th NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test, or DART, will intentionally crash into a near-Earth asteroid in the name of planetary defense.

NASA expert Nancy Chabot joined Action News 5′s Andrew Douglas at the digital desk to talk more about the exciting mission.

Chabot also talked more about planetary defense, including the likelihood of an asteroid being a big enough danger to Earth that we would need to use this technology to avoid a huge natural disaster.
