Quote"I was really worried there was nothing left of Dimorphos" at first, Carnelli told AFP.The Hera mission, which is scheduled to launch in October 2024 and arrive at the asteroid in 2026, had expected to survey a crater around 10 meters (33 feet) in diameter.It now looks like it will be far bigger, Carnelli said, "if there is a crater at all, maybe a piece of Dimorphos was just chunked off."

Quote from: Dark Lightning on October 04, 2022, 10:46:55 PMI went and read the article about it over at phys.org. It would appear that my pessimism was (thankfully) misplaced. I also read where a lot more ejecta was noted than was expected. I was always told to be careful where I was throwing rocks, when I was a kid.
Quote from: Tank on October 05, 2022, 07:04:07 PMWould you rather be hit by a rock or the equivalent weight of sand? Or put it another way one 1,000kg rock or that rock cut into 100,000 pieces. I would think that one rock would make it to ground but the 100,000 pebble would burn up through the atmosphere.
