I mean, we're always worried about how a near miss or a hit on Earth could be to us...but what would the affect be on the solar system if Mercury was struck, or even worse, what if the impact had enough force to change the orbit...even slightly...of course, it probably doesn't have that sort of force...

I bet we see a thread on here dedicated to it!

This is a craft. Darkness has been dismantled. This is a craft of the Divine True Light.
