Updates to the Small Body Mapping Tool (SBMT) for the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) [#2728]
In this presentation, we discuss the improvements to the Small Body Mapping Tool that were made for the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission.
Caldwell W. K.* Plesko C. S.
Preliminary Results from Modeling the Kinetic Impact of the DART Spacecraft into Dimorphos [#2157]
The NASA DART spacecraft successfully impacted Dimorphos on September 26, 2022. Here, we share preliminary 2D and 3D hydrocode models of the impact.
Collins G. S.* Dai K. Davison T. M. Raducan S. D. Stickle A. M.
The Effect of Boulder Contact on Momentum Transfer Efficiency in the DART Impact [#2267]
Do surface boulders / Help or hinder deflection? / DART models say both.

Momentum Enhancement β Measurements of Basalt-Based Rubble Pile Simulants Impacted by Aluminum Spheres at over 5 km/s [#2622]
Experiments were performed to measure the momentum enhancement beta of impacts into asteroid simulants built of crushed basalt, motivated by DART images.
McMahon J. W.* Long C. Cueva R.
Changes to the Long-Term Dynamical Evolution of Didymos After the DART Impact [#2447]
The DART impact didn’t only change Didymos’ orbit now, it changed how the orbit will evolve!
Schmedemann N.* Hiesinger H.
The DART Impact — Testbed for Crater Scaling and Ejecta Simulation Models [#1471]
We use NAIF-SPICE data, crater scaling, and ejecta scaling models and compare the modeled ejecta plume of the DART impact with telescopic data.
Oldroyd W. J.* Chandler C. O. Trujillo C. A. Thomas C. A. Knight M. M. et al.
Didymos as an Active Asteroid [#2947]
We analyze DART target Didymos for cometary features using active asteroid analysis techniques to study the active asteroids and the origins of their activity.
Senel C. B.* Karatekin O. Raducan S. D. Luther R.
Post-Impact Porosity and Gravity Anomalies Following the Hypervelocity DART Impact on Asteroid Dimorphos [#2598]
Here, we showcase impact-induced porosity alterations and gravity signatures performing hypervelocity DART-scale kinetic impactor simulations.
Henry G.* Karatekin Ö. Senel C. B.
Thermophysical Modeling for Binary Asteroid and Application to Didymos [#2968]
We present the simulated surface temperatures of Didymos and Dimorphos, target of the Hera and DART mission, using a thermophysical model for binary asteroids.
