Scientists: Earth Could be on Collision Course with Neighboring Planets in Distant Future
Research being conducted by French scientists indicates eventual destabilization of Mercury could cause a major impact between Earth and Mars. The research was carried out by two French scientists who reportedly used “arcane mathematical” models to help predict the next five billion years of the galaxy.
Running a computer simulation of 2,501 different scenarios of various planets in the Earth’s solar system, Mercury’s orbit was disrupted, causing a domino effect that led to Earth, Venus and Mars also suffering from solar system disruption. The 2,501 scenarios were over the next five billion years, noting that the solar system is 99 percent likely to continue to operate the exact same way as today without a hiccup.
