Asteroid Hit by NASA Spacecraft Was Reshaped by the Collision, Study Finds

Instead of forming a crater, the agency’s intentional DART crash redistributed massive amounts of the asteroid and shot large quantities of rock into space

CCPO NoteOnce again, scientific findings and actual observations contradict secular theories about asteroids.  There is only one theory that adequately explains these findings, the Hydroplate Theory (HPT) of Dr. Walt Brown.  In fact, Pastor Kevin predicted the results reported in this article based on the HPT.  (See related article: HPT Prediction Fulfilled! “NASA Asteroid Deflection Test (DART) Accidentally Creates A BOULDER SWARM That Could Impact the Earth with As Much Energy as the Hiroshima Detonation.)

Brown postulates that comets, asteroids, and trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) formed in space from water, rocks, and other debris (that included entrained organic material) ejected from the earth during the initiation of the global flood event. The Bible describes this as the day when “all the fountains [water] of the great deep were broken up” (Genesis 7:11).  The HPT also explains why recent scientific discoveries about comets and asteroids show that their origin was recent, their lifetime is short, and how their composition and morphology, so shocking to astronomers, can be understood in light of the HPT.   To learn more about the HPT explanation for comets and asteroids, we encourage you to watch Pastor Kevin Lea’s presentations, “Origin of Comets, Asteroids & Trans Neptunian Objects: Solving The Puzzle Above Us,” Part 1 and Part 2, at the Calvary Church Port Orchard YouTube channel (  See also Bryan Nickel’s YouTube Channel,, for HPT animations of this and other topics addressed by the HPT and for more information about the Hydroplate Theory.

In September 2022, NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) spacecraft intentionally rammed into an asteroid millions of miles from Earth, altering the rock’s orbital trajectory. The mission demonstrated that a spacecraft could possibly be used in the future to change the path of an asteroid heading toward our planet.

In a new study published Monday in the journal Nature Astronomy, researchers examined this collision more closely. They found that rather than being a solid object, the asteroid, called Dimorphos, is more like a pile of rubble, weakly held together by gravity. And instead of just forming an impact crater, DART’s crash actually reshaped the asteroid.

The collision ejected about 1 percent of Dimorphos’ mass into space, the team reports. It also shook free around 8 percent of the asteroid’s mass from one end and redistributed it in the center, making Dimorphos rounder, writes Inverse’s Kiona Smith…
