The meteorite that caused Meteor Crater in Arizona is maybe four feet across. It created a hole a mile wide with the force of 20 tons of dynamite which wiped out anything within several miles. The "rest if it" disintegrated on impact. This was 50,000 years ago.

So yeah, this thing probably did a lot of damage since it is so much larger.


The Barringer meteorite in AZ was made of nickel-iron and is estimated to have been about 45 meters (150 ft) across, weighing about 270,000 metric tons (300,000 tons).
The explosion was equal to 2.5 megatons of TNT!

People need to fact check before posting. LOL
