I CAN'T BELIEVE I ACTUALLY DREW THIS
Okay I'm pretty sure you're reading this for an explanation. And there IS one.FUN FACT"Jupiter has a huge gravitational influence over its siblings, especially the smaller planets. It appears that the long-term prospects for the smallest planet are bleak. The huge gravitational pull of Jupiter seems to be bullying Mercury into an increasingly eccentric death-orbit, possibly flinging the cosmic lightweight into the path of Venus. To make things worse, there might be dire consequences for Earth…"
To put it bluntly, Jupiter is actually a bigger influence than we thought and appears to actually bully Mercury.
"The researchers formulate four possible scenarios as to what may happen as Mercury gets disturbed:
- Mercury will crash into the Sun
- Mercury will be ejected from the solar system altogether
- Mercury will crash into Venus
- Mercury will crash into Earth
The last option is obviously the worst case scenario for us, but all will be bad news for Mercury, the small planet’s fate appears to be sealed. So what’s the likelihood Mercury could crash into the Earth? If it did, the asteroid that most likely wiped out the dinosaurs will seem like a drop in the ocean compared with a planet 4880 km in diameter slamming into us. There will be very little left after this wrecking ball impact."Article: www.universetoday.com/14032/co…
I bolded that last bit BECAUSE THAT'S THE MAIN REASON THIS TURNED OUT LIKE... THIS
Because when I read that article my mind was actually rushing with angst and I was already getting hurt and possibly crying a bit but
That just changed everything like 180 degrees
Cronus pretty much knows his gas giant partner and no he doesn't like that smile
-Last but not the least, HERE'S THE REASON I SAW THAT ARTICLE IN THE FIRST PLACE
She drew a comic where I saw the article from. It was really cute! Her version is less... crazy and I'd say more on the cute. Flying little Mercury in the air by an unseen force~ *coughJupitercoughcoughactingsoinnocentwhenhe'snot*
