Space debris 'event' forces ISS crew to take evasive action
The United States said Monday it was investigating a "debris-generating event in outer space" after astronauts on the International Space Station were forced to prepare for a possible evacuation. It came amid unconfirmed reports that Russia had carried out an anti-satellite weapon (ASAT) test -- rare show-of-force demonstrations criticized by the space community because of the risk they create for crews in low Earth orbit.

The US space authority NASA started the "Dart" probe. It's about nothing less than the rescue of the world.
NASA wants to preserve the world from mischief from the orbit and therefore has now the "Dart" probe, by the way driven by a "Falcon 9" rocket of Elon Musks Space company Spacex, in the direction of ALL.
start date of the probe was yesterday's 24th November 2021 at 06:21 clock (UTC) from the Vandenberg Air Force base in the US state of California.

According to the Americans, this demonstration of force threatened the safety of astronauts aboard the international space station, due to the orbital debris generated by the explosion.

in nine months should then meet "Dart" on the asteroid Dimorphos, which by the way does not go to the course of collision is located. "Dart" should minimally dissuade the asteroids with his impact. More: Dimorphos should be directed into the orbit of another asteroid.
compared toexplains Missions Engineer Elena Adams The exciting second phase of the experiment: "We will monitor the asteroids for a few months with ground-based telescopes. We want to measure the extent we have changed the railway from Dimorphos. We the light curve of the asteroid, so at what distances the light becomes darker and brighter when the moon passes by dart. "
costs of unmanned mission: around $ 330 million!

US space agency says the elevated risk stemmed from a Russian anti-satellite missile test this month. But about five hours before the outing was to have commenced, NASA said on Twitter the spacewalk had been called off for the time being. “NASA received a debris notification for the space station. Due to the lack of opportunity to properly assess the risk it could pose to the astronauts, teams have decided to delay the Nov. 30 spacewalk until more information is available,” the space agency tweeted.
