Tunguska event for example is believed to have been caused by approximately 50 meters large asteroid and it yielded ~10 MT! I dare not think of consequences such a thing hits some densely populated area (or the ocean where tsunamis could be created).
so 60 meter asteroid can make quite a stir ....A 10-meter body typically has the kinetic energy of about five nuclear warheads of the size dropped on Hiroshima, however, and the shock wave it creates can do considerable damage even if nothing but comparatively small fragments survive to reach the ground.
[*******#333333]actually i am sorry for misreading 60 meters as 6 meters....actually that Arizona and Indian lunar lake crater were somewhere around 50-60m in dia which yielded 10-15 mt of TNT.[/COLOR]
[*******#333333]So even a 50 m asteroid can unleash catastrophe[/COLOR]
unless it's a UFO
I say, just let the Asteroid hit earth and lets start all over. The worlds over populated as it is right?
I suggest everyone learn to swim or bring some arm floatiesSome say a comet will fall from the sky.
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves.
Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still.
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dip****s.
Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will, cuz'
I sure could use a vacation from this
