Planetary pile-up possible in next five billion years


www.astronomynow.com

According to new simulations, the evolution of the Solar System’s inner planets' orbits could lead to a planetary pile-up within the lifetime of our Sun.

It’s certainly happened before – the formation of our own Moon spawned from the collision of a Mars-sized body with the young Earth, and the Solar System’s inhabitants are constantly at risk of a bump by a passing asteroid that strays too close. But what of planets careering around the Solar System like an out-of-control pinball game?

OK, so the Earth has 1% chance that it may actually end in a huge explosion colliding with an inner solar system planet in the year 5000002012.

This is a prediction involving the numbers 2012 that can be made, as there's some nice little computer simulations as evidence to back it up
only slim chance though.

Shame the guys who made this simulation won't be around to to take credit for it, should it happen!

somehow I'm just not that worried about something that only has about a one percent chance happening in over three billion years from now. In fact i'm pretty sure I wont be worried about much of anything three billion years from now.

Hmm we could break a large chunk off Mars, Venus or the Moon. Maybe the change in gravitational forces would be enough to prevent this disaster. Knowing the human race we'd end up just causing a disaster!

Not even the 125 millionth generation of your family has to worry about this.

I would imagine that by the time this happens America will have fitted a gigantic jet pack to antarctica and the whole planet will be flying around the universe, boldly going where no planet has gone before. William shatner, cryogenically frozen, will be in charge as the chairman of a committee of disembodied heads OF heads of state who got a little too carried away by reports of their own importance and deemed themselves fit too "live" forever.

I'm certainly looking forward to it but i have just one question....if i hacksaw my own head off could i get my left arm to throw said head in the freezer compartment? Or is there an alternative?

A planetary pileup ??
Hmmmmm ... sounds to me like there's a "conspiracy" in effect here ... we should get all the "conspiracy" experts throwing their 2 cents worth in !
