Are they mad? The story is be barely noteworthy let alone worthy of being the fifth most important headline on the front page.
Fifth most important to whom Auntie Beeb?
People who are making plans for thier 3 billion year wedding anniversary? And those very long lived humans would have to also be extremely wary, as there is only a slim chance that it might happen!
So this BBC frontpage 'HEADLINE', is ONLY relevant to
psychotically overcautious humans whose genes carry 3 billion-agenarian potential.
Everest might erode into a plateau!
To put this story into perspective, 3 billion years ago, the earth had only just evolved single sell organisms. So, Could Earth collide with Mars? Yes, but not until it doesn't matter to you or anyone you care about!
