Seeking to better understand the level of death and destruction that would result from a large meteorite striking the Earth, Princeton University researchers have developed a new model that can not only more accurately simulate the seismic fallout of such an impact, but also help reveal new information about the surface and interior of planets based on past collisions.

In the second video he again miscalculates by stating that YU55 will hit the side facing it.
But at that point, YU55 is 198,000 miles awy and approaching at 30,000 miles per hour so it would hit in 6.5 approx hours time. As the Earth spins at around 300 mph and is 8000 miles in diamter, someone else can work out the rest of that equation to work out where YU55 would hit...
