Will NASA’s Asteroid mission save us in the future?

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail”, that quote by Benjamin Franklin certainly rings true with this current biological crisis but one day a large asteroid could give us all a very bad day. Thankfully we are starting to take the threat seriously and soon we will be testing to see if hitting a 150m chunk of rock weighing millions of tons can be knocked off a collision course with Earth with a 500kg spacecraft. This is AIDA, the Asteroid Impact and Deflection Assessment mission that will test out the theories on the double asteroid Didymos.
