Right here, at IMPACT you can create your very own asteroid or comet, and affect the variables, such as density, composition, size, velocity, angle of attack, yadda yadda yadda...

Gives you a very professional read-out on crater size, fallout, destruction galore! And more!

Seriously, though... this site is pretty interesting, and helps people try to figure out where we would stand (or fall) in an asteroid of a certian size hits... say... 1500 miles from home... or whatever.

Very cool tool... will use it for some story ideas myself, now that I can have reliable information.

I think I overdid it


Final Crater Diameter: 80349463.45 km = 49897016.80 miles


7.07 x 1044 Joules = 1.69 x 1029 MegaTons TNT

BIG boom
Cool find though thanks!

Talk about overkill...


The first I used was a comet, 200 meters, icy core... BUT I had it impact at... I think... 38000 fps, at an angle of 35 degrees... I was off the Ricter Scale, registered at 12.9. Oddly enough, the report says comets with those stats do hit, but I don't remember how often.

What would be cool to do, though, is backtrack; take current craters and see what made them. Will have to try that.

I did it but I got pretty bored with looking at text. If I knew how to code, I would write a Java applet that would animate the sequence. Unfortunately, with the test I did, I was inside the part of the crater that got ejected on impact ... a free trip into space! No $10 mil Space Shuttle ride for me!

i got ejected into space when i did it too lol
it said strikes like these hapen every 5.1 x 10^8 years
thats a cool link

Great find Soothsayer.


Very enjoyable I certainly recommend other having a go.

My 1 mile diametre astroid which I place hitting the USA would leave a crater 27 miles across.

I would only experienced dust falling in the UK and hear a boom of a volumn similar to heavy traffic.

Edit:I changed my position and put myself on the coast of the US and:

Multistory wall-bearing buildings will collapse.

Wood frame buildings will almost completely collapse.

Glass windows will shatter.

Up to 90 percent of trees blown down; remainder stripped of branches and leaves.

uh....i really over-did it. it would destroy like the entire solar system.......

.62 x 10^111 Joules = 6.25 x 1095 MegaTons TNT
The average interval between impacts of this size somewhere on Earth is 6.4 x 10^75years

Transient Crater Diameter: 17121968688211996595716096.00 km = 10632742555379650225242112.00 miles
Final Crater Diameter: 32842185054737364298686791680.00 km = 20394996918991904021132869632.00 miles

that means it hits once every 64,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 years. wouldnt the universe be gone by then??

i hope im never alive when that one hits.


Edit:if anyone can tell me how many years that is (ex. billion, trillion, etc...) will get 10 dollars from me.

Number of zeros
66 - 120--undecillion - vigintillion

there are 75 sets of zeros

And I thought I was doing over kill...

But yeah, I'd love to find a program that has it animated... I did find one that asked you for impact location and your location, using Lat and Long... just have to find it again...

This one is not quite the same but it has animated movies of impacts---they aren't that impressive though..give me a few minutes, I'll find more

this one has good info also
