Next month, the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) of the space agency will collide with the asteroid Dimorphos.

Dimorphos orbits a larger asteroid called Didymos.

Both asteroids, according to scientists, are far from Earth.

But Dimorphos, is an asteroid that is thought to be 520 feet long.

This asteroid is one that might cause serious harm if it were to collide with the planet.

Regardless of the outcome, the mission will provide astronomers and scientists with crucial information.

DART will reach the end of its 10-month space voyage on September 26 at 7:14 p.m. ET.

The live broadcast by NASA will start at six o'clock. ET.

DART will launch a modest observation spacecraft ten days sooner in order to capture the impact.

The event will be broadcast live on NASA TV and the agency's website.

Additionally, it is accessible on its Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube channel.
