Photo: Earlier today, NASA’s robotic rover Curiosity completed a 352 million mile journey from Earth when it gently landed in a 96-mile wide crater violently gouged out of the surface of Mars by a space traveling object some 3.5 billion years ago. Fast forward a few billion years to when another space traveling object smashed into planet Earth during the Age of Dinosaurs, leaving a puncture just 2 miles wide.
