Italian Space Agency releases LICIACube images of DART crash

The italian space agency has released images of the collision captured by its LICIACube a few minutes after the collision. Images will be crucial in helping scientists understand the structure and composition of Dimorphos. The aim of NASA’s mission is to test whether a “kinetic transfer” method of asteroid mitigation can be a viable strategy.
