So, not fed up with dropping trash all over our own planet we are now littering objects far, far away in space. Unless all the Sci-Fi films I've watched over the years have been lying to me aren't all spaceships fitted with a self destruct sequence? Can't they blow it up once it has hit the surface?

There's a warehouse in the Nevada desert that's collecting all that rubbish for you FB.

Wouldn't it be hilarious if the impact of crash-landing the probe onto the comet' s surface resulted in an unaccounted-for orbital change that ultimately knocked it onto a colision course with the earth and smashed bang into ESA' s headquarters before annihilating us all? I' d be laughing my arse off on the other side of my face if that happened. Literally.
