Excellent production with lots of good CGI of massive impacts in 1080p to explain the history of huge asteroid impacts, likely future impacts, some science behind it all, and what they are doing about it. Asteroids, even small ones, are one of earth's worst enemies ever.


Screenshot from video

I thought the part about some asteroids having their own moons, and more recent observations that some are traveling in two's, and even three's- was pretty cool. Also mentioned are:

- the impact in the northeast USA, which is believed to have cause a mega tsunami as high as 30 or 40 MILES and would have reached OVER the Appalachian Mountains.


- the impact in Africa, which was just unbelievably big, and bigger than the one in Mexico.

- much more

Hope you all enjoy the series!

What are you part of what Dr. Carol Rosin suggested introducing this now?

This has nothing to do with Dr. Carol Rosin, and her Space Peace Treaty. This is simply a good documentary for those interested in asteroid impacts. Nothing more, nothing less.

What makes me wonder is that their could be an asteroid heading for earth which could wipe out the earth in maybe a years time ,however I doubt it would be made public as the world would would be thrown into chaos,they might tell us when it's close to hitting and the governments have already got their underground bunkers ready.I really doubt they would go public with that info which makes me wonder, we could be doomed without knowing anything about it

That is covered in the video. Which is why....I suggest....you...watch it?


The biggest ones they'd probably spot, and we'd have ample warning- like decades. The real danger lies with the smaller ones, of which there are millions, but are still powerful enough to wipe out a city. In the video they mention what percentage of these are currently known, and it's small.

Well if there's one thing that could start an accidental nuclear war, besides bone-headed boys playing with their toys, it would be an air burst asteroid explosion over a country, like what happened in Tunguska in 1908.

Except this time, as luck would have it, it's bigger and actually reaches ground right at New Delhi in India- leveling the place. With communications totally wiped out, survivor panic ensuing at the perimeter, millions of dead, and with no other way of checking, what would the guy with his hand on the nuke button do? Assume it came from Pakistan and fire everything he's got back at Pakistan, anticipating another one? Look at the pictures of the resulting damage at Tunguska, and see what I am talking about. Might as well have been a nuke.

Except there would be no radiation. I think all countries would be able to tell the difference between a nuke and an asteroid or comet strike.

But yeah, a big hit from space is worrying. And overdue.

Let's hope so, if it ever happened.

You know, I've been trying to find more statistics on that exact thing. For some reason most everything I am finding deals with asteroid sizes of LESS than about 2 km. It's almost as if anything over that, and they just throw their hands up...I guess they figure what's the point of arguing near certain extinction?


Anyway, I'm always happy to entertain any links anyone would like to provide on that. Statistics on when the next ELE from a massive asteroid (2 km +) might occur.
