Asteroids pile the earth on a daily basis and throw hundreds of tons of space debris into the planet's atmosphere. About once every 2000 years, an asteroid strikes a football field, causing widespread destruction. According to the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), between April 15, 1988 and February 1, 2019, at least 771 significant meteor impacts were recorded worldwide. However, civilization threatening asteroids are very rare, as they only meet a few billion years.
But large killer asteroids lurk in the depths of darkness and the potential effects of them can be catastrophic.
But what exactly would happen if one of these killer asteroids were to hit the earth tomorrow? How big an outbreak would the destruction be?
The Discovery Channel responded to this exact question by simulating an asteroid impact from a 31

While e asteroid barrels toward the ground, the air ignites around the frictional force.
Day-day street then crashes in the Pacific region, where the force immediately scales off more than six miles (10 km) of the Earth's crust
The resulting shock wave throws up a huge river wave in all directions from which the asteroid landed.

Columns of fire and smoke are seen as rising in the video and spread in an ever-expanding line from asteroid.

In the simulation video, nothing stands in the way of the asteroid's burning shockwave.
Day becomes night, life turns to death and the surface becomes uninhabitable.

One by one the whole country shows that they crumble and scare away with the earth's rapidly deteriorating crust.
The shockwave, which at this time spreads around the world with hypersonic speed, evaporates everything before it.
Land that was once green and flowing with life is seen as a sea of fire and walls.
Of all the deadly asteroids that struck the earth in their violent cosmic past, the dinosaur killer Chicxulub asteroid was the most devastating of them all.
The giant asteroid, which struck the earth 65-66 million years ago, is believed to have been only about 5.5 km (9 km) in diameter. 19659003] But a 2017 study published in the journal Nature found that the asteroid struck just the right place in today's Mexico, to wipe out the dinosaurs.
The study reads: "New studies have shown that this impact on the Yucatan peninsula warms up hydrocarbons and sulfur in these rocks, forms stratospheric soot and sulfate aerosols and causes extreme global cooling and drought.
" These events triggered a mass extinction , including dinosaurs, and led to the subsequent macroevolution of mammals. "

Thank you, according to the United States: s space agency NASA, there are very few asteroids hiding in the depths of space, which constitutes a real threat to the earth.
NASA said: "With increasing regularity, scientists discover unusual asteroids and comets, those who take them near the earth and the sun.
"Very few of these bodies are potential hazards to the earth, but the more we know and understand about them, the better prepared we will be to take appropriate measures if you are on the way.
" Understanding the size, the shape, mass, composition, and structure of these objects will help determine the best way to divert a space rock that was found to be on an earthly path. "
