As the Curiosity spacecraft approaches Mars, I have realized something important. Martian not Mayan! The source of the upcoming apocalypse will be the red planet, not a centuries-dead civilization.
So far, the Martians have been nice to us. We’ve sent up a bunch of cool toys that I’m sure they’ve enjoyed playing with. But Curiosity contains a nuclear reactor. Act of war, anyone?
The Martians will not be pleased. Remember, you read it here first.
