This is all like from this novel I just read, a humorous sort of Douglas Adams-ish book about an asteroid headed toward earth, called THE MYOSHI EFFECT.

Nice article: so the OS & IR concentrations are lower than a typical mass expected for a big asteroid.
Makes some sense.
May get proof if the comet heading for Mars makes contact. Be sad for the rovers though.
Have a nice day: Ag
