Mars/Venus To Make Eventual Impact with Earth. Two Worlds Will Literally Collide

11 Jun

In case you don’t get the title, you know how in movie trailers they’re always like, “She was the heir to a throne she didn’t want. He was from the outskirts of town. Now. Their two worlds. Will collide. Coming this summer…blah blah blah”

It’s kind of like that, but with two planets causing an impact so massive that it kills all life in one fell swoop. But don’t worry, you’ll be dead long before it happens..if that makes you feel any better.

Astronomers calculate there is a tiny chance that Mars or Venus could collide with Earth – though it would not happen for at least a billion years.

The finding comes from simulations to show how orbits of planets might evolve billions of years into the future.

But the calculated chances of such events occurring are tiny.”  BBC News
