Am I the only one rooting for a mars shattering kboom?

1) because it would be neat.
2) because it would be cool.

That one way trip to Mars is looking more appealing, after water from the comet condenses into oceans.

Unless there are women on that trip or they magically materialize out of the martian soil, i'm not interested.

It's not quite that big.

But a hundred years from now, our grandchildren will wonder why we didn't launch a thing to aim the comet more precisely at Mars to ensure an impact. Ungrateful little shiats.

The Martians should really get out of there while they still have the chance...

We'd be able to see a potential extinction-level event occur on our closest neighbor. That alone would be freakin' awesome. If it does happen, I'm pretty sure we'll see a lot more money pumped into astronomy and watching the skies, kind of like how someone finally decides to get an alarm system after watching their neighbor's house get ransacked clean.

In about a hundred years, our grandchildren will think of us as people who wore their baseball caps backward and grabbed their crotches a lot.  They'll understand why we didn't do much celestial engineering.

The problem was, the comet woke something up.  Something ancient, terrible, and evil...

If Han taught us anything, it's that we should shoot Mars before Marvin shoots us.

Curiosity, though, would carry on just fine

Ya know, except for the whole getting blown up thing.

Well, unless it's within a certain radius of the impact, it would probably survive.

Just like we did after  Shoemaker-Levy 9, right? Oh, wait...

Not really an extinction-level event, and not really our closest neighbor.

Not to mention the difference in relative sizes will make a Mars impact much more visually dramatic.

elchupacabra: "Not to mention the difference in relative sizes will make a Mars impact much more visually dramatic."

Do we know yet if the impact would be visible from earth based telescopes, or would it hit the side facing away from us and we'd have to rely on one of the mars orbiters to catch the impact as it happens.
