The spacecraft conceived by US scientists to possibly deflect Bennu -- dubbed HAMMER, short for Hypervelocity Asteroid Mitigation Mission for Emergency Response vehicle -- is 9 metres tall, weighs 8.8 tonnes and features a modular design that would enable it to serve as either a 'kinetic impactor' -- essentially a battering ram -- or as a transport vehicle for a nuclear device.
