Mars' Ancient Collision

(2)Scientists recently theorized that a gigantic impact created a crater over Mars' northern half, some 4.4 billion years ago, during a time when large projectiles were prevalent in the inner solar system. The object that hit Mars was estimated to be half-as-wide as Mercury. For more, including a video recreation of the impact, visit New Scientist(1).
