I'm very happy that at long last NASA is doing this. But in what way is it "a very exciting new technology"?
Has not the Soviet Union-Russia been doing that since 1967? Did not Japan do that some years ago? Of course, if DART can do more than the Progresses, & more than whatever the Japanese robot sub-satellite was called, three cheers!
