Have you heard that watching a spaceship slam into an asteroid is a smashing good time?

The world's first trial of planetary defense technology will be conducted later this month by NASA.

Yes, that is correct. NASA will stream the whole shebang from the asteroid Dimorphos on September 26th.

NASA says that Dimorphos, a moonlet circling Didymos, poses no threat to Earth.

The first of its kind spectacle can be watched through the links listed below.

Where and What to Watch

The broadcast of the test will begin at 6 p.m. on Monday, September 26. You can watch the live stream on NASA TV.

There is more to come for those interested in the test.

The time is 9 a.m. NASA will host a media day at the Applied Physics Laboratory to show off the technology behind DART, which will autonomously guide itself to its target.

There will be a 3 p.m. event on Thursday. NASA will hold a press conference at its headquarters to give a preview of the final activities before it crashes into the asteroid.

You can watch all of these on the NASA TV broadcast, but you can also watch them on the agency's social media accounts.

DART: Red Alert! has more information. NASA is going to test its defense against a killer asteroid.
