I remember explaining to a room full of suits what the internet was, but it wasn’t sticking. So I asked “where are you from?” Tulsa. “OK…here is the weather RIGHT NOW in Tulsa.”
No one got it except this guy in a brown suit in the middle of the room. His eyes got wide and I realized he understood what this meant for the future. 

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.

Still I couldn't help looking for a pair of bugged-out eyes looking out as the impact approached...
