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
