...ok so i`ve got some time to plan ahead then...
pretty much exactly what i was going to say.
It wouldn`t be a very "neat" future if these planets collided, now would it? It would be rather messy, if you ask me... XD
Why do you think they put so much efforts in the orbital space station?
I love you.
In a billion years.
Hopefully, if the idiots don`t keep trying to turn the world into an idiocracy, we`ll figure out the warp drive and find one of the other 34,000 earths.
Anyways, what are the odds of the perfect head on collision they showed? It`d be 100,000,000,000 times more like to be an off-center hit, I`m sure.
Pretty graphics, though.
Seriously, why even bring this crap up?
Just as the Earth is dynamic and can surprisingly "fix" problems, its just as possible that the orbits would react similarly. Of course its been a couple years since I`ve studied orbits, but it seems like a very unlikely scenario. I`m personally more worried about the Sun`s constant increase in luminosity. It only needs to increase a fraction and then it can boil of the oceans and Earth will be the next Venus. That`s probably on the timescale of a billion years too.
another pointless research made by there. who the hell give scientists all this money to work out that teh planets will collide in a billion years, and to analyze what amstrong said when he landed on the moon?
i want my money back!!
True, but they are scientist, not psychics. Plus, most people aren`t smart enough to realize that the planet would look different, and if they made it look different, people would be like "but that`s not the Earth."
Secondly: "In the mantle, temperatures range between 500 °C to 900 °C (932 °F–1,652 °F) at the upper boundary with the crust to over 4,000 °C (7,200 °F) at the boundary with the core."
Thirdly: Much of the kinetic energy will result in heat. Whilst the exact physics of planetary collisions escape me, I`m fairly sure there`s enough energy floating around that a hell of a lot of heat will be generated.
Venus is a rock planet, the only gas planets are the `gas giants` Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.
Humanity = cant do poo to the earth. Its too big.
Also, I call BS on this video, anyways. OH MY GOSH, TINY FLUCTUATIONS, IT MUST MEAN THE EARTH IS GOING TO COLLIDE WITH VENUS OR MARS!!! BETTER SPREAD THIS CRAP AROUND!!
Also, the title is misleading for two reasons.
first, a billion years is hardly the near future.
second, it said mars OR venus.
Besides, two years ago they were saying that the sun would go supernova in a billion years, but I guess Mars and Venus are co-conspirators of the sun and they`ve decided to change the plan or something.
I would imagine like, I dunno... it completely turning into dust and gases evberywhere instead of blowing up in the earth?
We can destroy ourselves but not the planet. Not yet anyway!
