No asteroid impact on Mars

We ended last year commenting the possibility of an asteroid impact on Mars, this asteroid (2007 WD5) had rather small change of crashing on Mars.

The latest data has ruled out this possibility, the use of archival photos and observations from the German-Spanish Astronomical Center, Calar Alto, Spain; the Multi-Mirror Telescope, Mt. Hopkins, Arizona; and the University of Hawaii telescope, Mauna Kea, Hawaii yielded and impact probability of cero.

We will need to wait for this kind of serious fireworks in the future!
