Scientists Predicted The Clash of Earth and Mars
In future, the Earth may face Mars or Venus. This is reported by a number of media with reference to scientists from the University of Madison in Wisconsin and The University of American Northwestern. In future, the orbits of these planets will not intersect, and the probability of collision will be extremely low.
The experts argue that the orbits of the Earth and other planets revolving around the Sun constantly “fluctuating” under the influence of certain processes. According to the scientists, the orbits of the planets are very stable today.
According to the experts, the situation may change in billions of years, and in this case, the solar system will be much more “chaotic” than today. From time to time, the orbits of the planets will intersect each other. As a result, even if the Earth and the “neighboring” planets do not rush against each other, but only find themselves nearby, their gravitational interaction can cause a collision.
By the way, in past some experts predicted the future collision of the Earth with the Moon – however, this hypothetical event can also occur only in the very distant future, and by that time the Sun would still turn into a red giant, making the Earth unfit for life.
