Here at SoD, we celebrate the dark arts. And, there is no darker art than Cosmology. Which makes what I have to tell you all the more unsettling:
The Earth is going to collide with Venus.
Well, maybe. Actually there is only a 1% chance this could occur — 3.5 billion years from now.
The cause of this disaster is a little known phenomenon called “orbital chaos.” Sounds like a 70’s prog rock band, right? Nope. It is the tolling bell of doom for your great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandkids/cyborgs.
So there you have it. Feel free to lose your job, drink yourself into oblivion, and plunge the stock market into the depths of the abyss. Wait, you’ve already done that? Well, say what you will about Earthians, but we aren’t procrastinators when it comes to planning our own demise.
