Soyuz 2.1b | Uzlovoy Module (UM) "Prichal"

Progress Rocket Space Center | RUS
Baikonur Cosmodrome, Republic of Kazakhstan
Nov. 24, 2021, 1:06 p.m.
Status: Launch Successful
Mission: Human Exploration

The UM (Uzlovoy Module) or NM (Node Module) is a node to be added to the Russian part of the ISS complex. It is also named Prichal. UM will be delivered by a modified Progress space tug, called Progress-M-UM. The UM will be docked to the nadir port of the MLM (Nauka) module, providing four ports to mount additional modules and one docking port for cargo and crew spacecrafts.

Falcon 9 Block 5 | Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART)

SpaceX | USA
Vandenberg SFB, CA, USA
Nov. 24, 2021, 6:21 a.m.
Status: Launch Successful
Mission: Robotic Exploration

Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission is the first-ever mission to demonstrate the capability to deflect an asteroid by colliding a spacecraft with it at high speed, a technique known as a kinetic impactor. DART is a planetary defense-driven test of one of the technologies for preventing the Earth impact of a hazardous asteroid: the kinetic impactor. DART's primary objective is to demonstrate a kinetic impact on a small asteroid. The binary near-Earth asteroid (65803) Didymos is the target for DART. While Didymos' primary body is approximately 800 meters across, its secondary body has a 150-meter size, which is more typical of the size of asteroids that could pose a more common hazard to Earth. The DART spacecraft will achieve the kinetic impact by deliberately crashing itself into the moonlet at a speed of approximately 6 km/s, with the aid of an onboard camera and sophisticated autonomous navigation software. The collision will change the speed of the moonlet in its orbit around the main body by a fraction of one percent, enough to be measured using telescopes on Earth.
