Terrific asteroid impact video

October 5, 2006 at 5:43 pm (Media, Science)

2It’s an impressive animation of what would happen if an asteroid — maybe 500 miles across or so — impacts the Earth. The visuals are stunning, and someone set it to excellent music for the action.

Odds of anything this size hitting us even in the next million years are slim to none. We know of every asteroid this size in the solar system out to terrific distances. But an impact like this would wipe out everything. Everything. As far as I can tell, the depiction there is pretty accurate.
