I happened across this about 10 minutes before it hit..Pretty cool

I thought it was going to hit the rock in front but it went right by that and hit the asteroid dead center..

They didn't want to impact the rotation, which could result from an off-center hit.
They want to impart the greatest delta-V to the mass.

Well they’ve rolled Artimus 1 back into the VAB, so the next viable launch window is in November.

They'll probably have to replace the pyros on the abort/destruct system.

There goes another few million.
