T hat explosion is not in the animation as the Tunguska meteorite is thought to have exploded above ground, the animation shows meteorites that
impacted earth only. So even though its a big event in recent history it is not shown.
Good Morning Quantum_ Squirrel, I got to looking and it does show the Tunguska event on there, although it's listed at only 13 gr .I imagine for the
reason you said, it exploded in air and not much left to hit Earth?
The criteria for this animation - while cool as hell, and well done - is flawed for not including the Tunguska event.
While actually impacting
the Earth or not (it didn't), how do you not
"...the largest 'impact event' on or near Earth in recorded history"
Everything I can find on the web.
S&F for the providing the link.
The largest Impact on there...
...you know, the one from 1947 [Sikhote-Alin, Russia] that lights up your whole screen...?
...that's in a category all on its own? That was 23 Tons
Event was anywhere from 3 to 30MEGA
1,000 times big than the Bombs we dropped on Japan. [The Little Boy atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, and the Fat Man atomic bomb
dropped on Nagasaki on August 9, 1945, both exploded with an energy of about 12.5 kilo
tons of TNT]
