It’s basically an Armageddon dress rehearsal.
In an attempt to prevent an Armageddon-like situation, the European Space Agency and NASA have teamed up for an asteroid mission that will serve as a practice run for saving the earth, ITV News reports.
The Aida (Asteroid Deflection and Assessment) mission will test whether or not it’s possible to change the orbital path of an asteroid. Although the targeted asteroid, known as Didymoon, is only 525 feet wide, the same principle could potentially apply to a much larger, more threatening formation.
