The ignorance that still abounds in the 21st century never fails to amaze me.
One SPACE.com reader asks: “Will it be dangerous when Mars gets that close to Earth? It has me a little worried.” Others have e-mailed to say they heard there would be earthquakes or other disasters. One of the many rumors going around says the two planets will collide.
C’mon, people. Instead of using your fancy new computer to play solitaire or surf joke-of-the-day web sites, why don’t you spend a few hours (hell, even a few minutes) actually *learning* instead of spreading ignorance.
