THIS IS REAL !!! Didymos and its small moon Dimorphos. Current live feed from the DART website …. Log on quick ! Impact imminent !!
Well, in the midst of rehearsing madly for the Taylor Hawkins show tomorrow …. This is the best I could do for a baseline for a 3-D view of the Didymos system on the final approach. Just using a rather crummy phone capture. Well, it’ll do as a start.
Here we have a parallel stereo, a cross-eyed stereo, and then a best close-up on the tiny Dimorphos moonlet seconds before it became the victim of the attack by the DART guided projectile.
I’ll be interested to see if any better material can be obtained once the cubesat gets there to take a look at the damage … but for now … this is my meagre offering !
