Astonishing 500km Asteroid Impact Simulation [Video]

Oct 18 2012

  • Destination: Pacific Ocean
  • The impact peels off 10km of Earth's crust
  • The shock-wave travels at hypersonic speeds (6,150-12,300km/h)
  • Debris are blasted off into space, only to return and destroy the surface of the Earth
  • Fires would engulf the entire surface of the planet, vaporizing all the life in their way
  • Within 1 day, the surface of the Earth is inhabitable
  • The evidence shows that this has happened at least 6 times in Earth's history
