Prepare Uranus for a collision

Uranus has it rough. It already has to deal with a load of noxious gases, but now, Uranus has to get ready for a destructive collision?

What? I’m talking about the planet:

Robert Chancia of the University of Idaho, discovered that one of [Uranus’] moons, Cressida, is currently in an orbit that will lead it to collide directly with another moon, called Desdemona.

Fortunately, you have time to prepare Uranus: this collision isn’t estimated to happen for another 1 million years. Uranus can breathe a sigh of relief.

NASA is still considering a plan to send a probe to sample the gases of Uranus

So I guess we still have that to look forward to.
