NASA on Thursday shared the first images captured by the James Webb and Hubble space telescopes of a spacecraft slamming into an asteroid in a first-of-its-kind experiment earlier this week. The collision created huge plumes of dust and debris, and both Hubble and JWST observed Dimorphos before and after the crash.
