I think this one is pretty close shave.

100 meters?

Lets be real ok?

That wouldnt hardly have done a damn thing.

The area it wouldve hit probably would see something on par with a nuke, MAYBE.. but lets be real...

With the size of earth, I could almost guarantee it wouldnt have hit a populated area..

and even if it was heading in that direction.. the minute it wouldve hit our atmosphere it wouldve burned up and disintegrated to half the size if not less.


The science consensus is that it could have devastated a city... force would be more than hiroshima.

Just read up on tungska again... that was estimates to be 50-100m in diametre and exploded midair around 5-10km up.
Later some scientists believe the lake in the middle of the area is the crater (noone was up there till 18 years later) and that lake is 50m deep... :/

7ish km up and still shattered 2000 square km of forest.

Wikipedia writes that if it had arrived 6 hours later it would have decimated stockholm.

looks like we need a detection system out in various lagrange points
around the sun and in the solar system

Check out the Arizona crater, left by a 50 m body.

A 100 m rocky body would explode with around 16 megaton force, and leave a crater 1.7 km wide and 350 m deep.

Pretty bad if it's in a populated area.
