God bless capitalism and kickbacks!

They launched at 2am so the public wouldn’t see it if it exploded on the launchpad.

There's got to be a graph with speed/acceleration capability of rocket power getting bigger over time that abruptly plateaus with "faster that this and we kill the passengers."

I thought so as well; it IS the most powerful rocket ever built, so...

USA: Hello? EU? There's a massive asteroid heading for a direct hit on earth.

EU: Yikes, but you developed a rocket system to blow those off course, right?

USA: Right. But here's the thing - that cost a lot to develop and deploy. We think it is only fair if you pay half the cost. By tomorrow would be good.

EU: We never got an agreement in place on that.

USA: Yeah, well, we think that under the current circumstances, you will be eager to pay or else the world will get destroyed.

EU: But if you don't deploy it, you will get destroyed too.

US: Clock is ticking...

Same here. Yay that they hit a rock with a satellite. But the implications of 1) being able to identify the dangerous object 2) plot a course towards it that works 3) ram/destroy it so it’s not longer a threat…the orbit/trajectory calculations required for that are mind-boggling - and then to launch the thing, have it find the bad guy, then ram it - and save humanity. 

Holy cow.

Long story short
Fifteen days before impact, DART’s CubeSat companion Light Italian CubeSat for Imaging of Asteroids (LICIACube), provided by the Italian Space Agency, deployed from the spacecraft to capture images of DART’s impact and of the asteroid’s resulting cloud of ejected matter. In tandem with the images returned by DRACO, LICIACube’s images are intended to provide a view of the collision’s effects to help researchers better characterize the effectiveness of kinetic impact in deflecting an asteroid. Because LICIACube doesn’t carry a large antenna, images will be downlinked to Earth one by one in the coming weeks.
