NASA's James Webb Space Telescope and Hubble Space Telescope Capture Detailed Views of DART Impact

As NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) intentionally crashed into Dimorphos, the asteroid moonlet in the double-asteroid system of Didymos, on September 27, 2022, two of the great observatories, the NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope (BLUE) and the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope (RED), captured views of the unique experiment. The DART impact observations mark the first time that NASA used Webb and Hubble to simultaneously observe the same celestial target. NASA/ESA/UPI
