“When it hits, that’s it.”
The video below is of an asteroid hitting Earth and the possible destruction. Asteroids are left over rocks from the beginning of the solar system some 4.6 billion years ago. There is an asteroid belt that is found between Mars and Jupiter. Earth is constantly in the path, but the ones that near us break apart into meteorites. Now these cause meteorites cause massive property damage each year, but few people die in comparison to what could happen from an asteroid.
Let’s Observe Strike Zones
The below photo is of the planet and the anticipated points where the major asteroids hit the planet. In the United States, the major hit zone was in Arizona, which occurred roughly 50,000 years ago, which created the Barrington meteorite crater. There is the Yucatan Peninsula hit that took place about 65 million years ago. The Argentina collide took place 3.3 million years ago, and in another part of the world two more hits. One being the 1908 crash which took place in Siberia and the other in China in the year 1490.
When Will It Happen Again
There is only a matter of time before the big one hits us again. But that is unlikely to happen as most don’t come within hundreds of thousands of miles and go off into space. But we can never be too sure. Good thing about a lot of these asteroids is that other planets are in the pathway as well. Planets without people on them that could serve as a buffer in case of any real threat. So, it would be sad to have to sacrifice a planet, but it is what it is. Better Jupiter or Mars take the hit than our planet.
