Asteroid on collision course with Mars


www.timesonline.co.uk

Mars is in danger of being struck by an asteroid at the end of next month, astronomers have calculated.

The newly discovered space rock known as 2007 WD5 has a one in 75 chance of colliding with the planet on January 30. While the probability of an impact is only slim, the odds have been cut from one in 350 when the object was first identified, and they are much shorter than is usual for new asteroids.

Now this is pretty cool, if it hits Mars.

But not so cool if it misses Mars and comes towards us.
They've worked out the chances of it hitting Mars but nothing about us.

Is this the only object on its way to Mars or are there others close behind it?
