Pasadena, California (IPP) - Jet Propulsion Lab astronomer, Dr. Povenmire Finootch reports that an asteroid has a relatively high probability of crashing into Mars on January 30th.
The asteroid will hit near the Martian equator. The last time an object was observed crashing into a planet was in 1994 when Jupiter was hit by a series of broken up asteroid fragments.
NASA personnel are preparing a large batch of Preparation H which will help the Martian planet heal its wounds.
Some scientists speculate that Pluto is behind this attack on Mars. Pluto was demoted from the status of planet by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) and there has been a greater than normal number of impacts on the inner solar system planets ever since. One example was the noxious asteroid chunk which crashed into Peru a few months ago.
