NASA explained that the global asteroid tracker has given this opportunity to test the opportunity to coordinate the international asteroid warning network.
The presence of asteroids will provide NASA with a real-world test scenario where they can use radar and optical observations to warn of potential future asteroid impacts. This is a fully voluntary project, completed by NASA asteroid observers and supported by the NASA Planetary Defense Coordination Office.
How do experts around the world coordinate their information in a day? This will be validated later in the test, and the information collected may help solve future disturbances.
Organizations around the world have been developing concepts and technologies to help protect our planet from asteroid impact, and NASA has played a big role in this area.
