ThrowForward Thursday 106: NASA shoots a rocket into an asteroid to save the world

In September 2022, NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) spacecraft deliberately collided with a small moonlet, Dimorphos more than 7 million miles away from earth. It successfully changed its trajectory, and proved that we can use this approach to deal with future threatening asteroids. It's a marvel of modern science, but it's also a fantastic analogy for what businesses need to be doing with "worst case scenario" thinking.
