Asteroids invade the earth every day, throwing hundreds of tons of space debris into the planet's atmosphere. About once every 2000 years or so, an asteroid the size of a football field hits, causing widespread destruction. According to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), between April 15, 1988 and February 1, 2019, at least 771 significant meteorological impacts were recorded worldwide. Asteroids that threaten civilization are much rarer, as they only affect every one million years.
But the main killer asteroids lurk in the dark depths of space and the potential impact of these could be catastrophic.
But what exactly would happen if one of these asteroids murderers hit the Earth tomorrow? How widespread would the destruction be?
The Discovery Channel answered this exact question by simulating an asteroid impact from a 500-kilometer-long space rock.
The terrifying video "Great simulation of impact of asteroids" the fiery death of the world from the moment of impact.

The rock of Doomsday crashes into the Pacific where the power of impact makes the earth's crust disappear more than six miles (10 km).
The resulting impact wave generates a huge tidal wave in all directions from where the asteroid landed.

In the video we see columns of fire and smoke expanding in a radius always growing from the asteroid.
Impact debris is pushed upward into Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and a fire storm of death and destruction engulfs the planet.
In the simulation video, nothing hampers the blazing bursts of the asteroid.

Of all the deadly asteroids that hit Earth in its violent past, the dinosaur killer The Asteroid Chicxulub was the most devastating of all.
It is believed that the giant asteroid, which hit the Earth between 65 and 66 million years ago, was only about 9.5 km in diameter  But a study of 2017 published in the journal Nature has discovered that the asteroid hit just the right spot in modern Mexico, to wipe out the dinosaurs.
The study reads: "Recent studies have shown that this heat impact of the Yucatan Peninsula has developed hydrocarbon and sulfur in these rocks, forming stratospheric soot and sulfate aerosols and causing extreme global cooling and drought.
"These events triggered a mass extinction, including dinosaurs, and led to the subsequent macroevolution of mammals."

Fortunately, according to the American space agency NASA, there are few ssimi asteroids hidden in the depths of space, representing a real threat to the Earth.
NASA said: "With increasing regularity, scientists are discovering asteroids and comets with unusual orbits, those that bring them closer to the Earth and the Sun.
" Very few of these bodies are potential dangers on Earth, but more we know and understand them, the more prepared we will be able to take the opportune
"Knowing the size, shape, mass, composition and structure of these objects will help to determine the best way to deviate a space rock that is located in a path that threatens the Earth. "
