Mercury is the most unstable planet of the solar system, with an oscillating orbital eccentricity (between 0 to 0.45). It seems there is a 1% probability in the next 5 billion years Jupiter and Mercury might enter in a 1:1 orbital resonance.
The ending variants for this event are :
- colliding with Venus
- colliding with the Sun
- being ejected from solar system.
Can it hit other targets on its way out of the solar system beside those enumerated, like Earth, Mars or the outer planets?
