Asteroid Impact Sim: This website shows how you would die if an asteroid hit earth.
Even the thought of it is scary. Imagine your own community being destroyed from an asteroid less than the size of a house.
A asteroid calculation website called asteroid impact simulator, claims that they are able to calculate the damages of an asteroid collision with earth. The creators of the website say that the simulation “may not be 100% accurate”, but is the best guess when it comes to predicting the effects of asteroid collisions.

To use the simulator, input a location of impact and the size of the asteroid. After clicking the submit button you will be able to see circles on the map that represent the radius of damages. When you hover over the circle you will be able to see the damages that occur inside the circle.
It’s extremely interesting to see how a massive city like San Francisco can be demolished by a small but vicious asteroid. Also, it’s even more scary to see how this simulation could become a reality.
With near earth asteroids wizzing past earth almost every month, it’s important to know how an asteroid collision where you live could change your life.
I’d like to praise the makers of the calculation website for helping everyone understand how serious an asteroid collision could be. All we can do is hope that we will never have to experience this situation.
