the sounds of neptune captured from the nasa voyager
Be very excited. On October 19th something ridiculous is going to happen. A rare comet from the Oort Cloud at the edge of our solar system is going to fly past NASA’s MAVEN robot as it orbits around Mars. It’ll be so close that they’re going to postpone work on Mars and study the comet for five days.
This will be the closest a comet’s ever gotten to Mars in human history and it’s coming from so far away that it’s likely going to have a lot of material we otherwise couldn’t find in the solar system very easily.
The chances of this happening are far less than one in a million.
Is there any chance we’ll be able to see it from earth?!
