Wishing Bad Luck on Your Neighbor December 25, 2007

Posted by Jim Satterfield in Astronomy, Science.

OK. I admit it. I really hope that our neighbor has a bit of bad luck. Of course I’m not alone. There are some planetary scientists and astronomers who agree with me. Of course the neighbor is millions of miles away, our planetary neighbor Mars. If you haven’t heard about this one, Mars has a chance for a visitor next month. Normally one would feel bad about wishing something “bad” on a neighbor but if this were to happen it would be the first asteroid impact on a rocky planet that we could watch, complete with orbiter and probes on the planet. If it does happen there should be amazing images and data next month.
