This story is based on a recent study which tells us about the horrors of a cataclysmic event which was to happen right now. Imagine if an asteroid with a diameter of 310 miles was to hit the Earth's surface.
Earth has survived many mass extinctions, but in today's world, the outcomes of it are much scarier. Around 7 billion people inhabit the earth today. If such an incident takes place, 90-95% of the world's population will be at risk.
The pictures below were taken from the study itself.
According to many reports, asteroids are much likely to hit in the Pacific Ocean.
If an asteroid was to collide with earth today itself, the impact of it would be disastrous. The impact would be so powerful that it would peel or destroy 6 miles of the earth's surface then and there.
The impact would release shockwaves which would destroy anything in its path.
There are chances of more than 5 billion deaths.
The asteroid collision would result in the displacement of debris in the low earth orbits.
The same debris would eventually come back to damage the earth!
In such an event a circle of fire would surround the earth.
This would eventually lead to vaporization of life.
The asteroid would make the earth go extinct. There would be no possibility of life after the collision whatsoever.
According to many reports, earth has witnessed many such events in the past. There have been records of 6 similar events witnessed in the past.
One must be prepared for destruction, but in this case there is nowhere to go! Even the thought of it gives you chills.
