I was talking to one of my girlfriends this morning and we were reminiscing about the asteroid that hit the earth. This was around 2:20am, and I was sitting here with my laptop and my headphones on, and she was talking about how she was going to be eating at a restaurant when the asteroid hit. I was like, “OMG, there’s going to be an asteroid impact, and we’re all going to die.
When you think of asteroids and how they may impact the Earth, you can picture the impact of a piece of stone, or the small pieces that result from explosions, or the chunks of rock that get torn to pieces when a meteor hits the Earth’s atmosphere. These are all very real things that result from an impact, and they all happen at a distance. But asteroids are smaller, and they’re typically more dangerous.
Yeah, asteroids and space junk can be a danger to the Earth, and there are multiple ways that can happen. One common impact is the impact of a meteorite, which is a tiny piece of rock that can cause a lot of damage. In a more common impact, a small piece of space junk can fall to the Earth and cause some serious damage because of its size. But it is a different kind of impact, and it can be much more dangerous.
The good news is that the biggest asteroid ever to hit our planet was in fact a meteor, the Chicxulub asteroid which was about 400 miles in diameter in July of that year. It was the biggest asteroid ever to hit our planet, but it also means that we have never had a major impact on an asteroid or a space junk.
It’s important to note that a small piece of space junk can still be a threat, like a piece of space junk that was dropped to Earth in a meteor. The piece of space junk that ended up hitting the Earth is more of a threat because of the magnitude of the impact. But it’s still a small piece of space junk and, since the Chicxulub asteroid was 400 miles in diameter, it is still a threat.
It’s funny because what we see in space is not only what we see in our own bodies and in our planet Earth, but we’re also seeing what’s happening to the rest of the solar system. The pieces of space junk that have been hitting Earth since man walked on the moon, or that will hit Earth in the future are just as big and dangerous as asteroids. Even though they’re smaller (they are in our solar system) they will still have a serious impact on our planet.
But it’s not just the threat of an asteroid hitting our planet that makes us anxious about the dangers of space. As it turns out, asteroids are big enough that a collision with Earth could lead to a chain reaction of devastating consequences. For one, we would get a very large asteroid hitting our planet’s crust. That might be enough to trigger a catastrophic, short-but-very-long-lasting impact, killing all the life on Earth.
That might not be enough though. We don’t even know how big the asteroid will be (although a collision of course would only be the end of it). But the impact itself could be very powerful, and not just in terms of the size of the impact. For instance, the impact of a larger asteroid could leave a crater big enough to swallow a city.
The asteroid being hit and the crater it makes would be like two separate universes to the earth, and that would be a very exciting thing for the human race. The earth would be a desolate wasteland, with no life and no technology to speak of. That might be a good thing for the human race.
The asteroid that hit Earth would be an extreme event. There would be no atmosphere, no water, and no life. The impact would be so intense that it would knock any life off the planet and into the sun. The sun would be a molten ball of fire, and the sun would scorch everything in it, not just the earth. The sun would be a massive ball of fire.
