NASA set April 15 as the launch date for its first robotic spacecraft that will interact with other satellites without any human intervention.
If all goes as planned, the DART spacecraft short for Demonstration of Autonomous Rendezvous Technology will soar into space off the California coast, catch up with an orbiting Pentagon satellite and maneuver around it, making close approaches and moving away.
