A new study shows that Mars is more prone to devastating asteroid impacts than we thought

Mars could face twice as many close encounters with potentially dangerous asteroids as Earth, according to a new study. This could jeopardize research missions on the Red Planet, but also provide insight into how the inner solar system was formed.

Asteroids pose the greatest threat to our planet from space — the 2013 Chelyabinsk meteor, for example, generated shock waves that injured more than 1,000 people and caused more than $33 million in infrastructure damage.
