There are hundreds of thousands of asteroids lurking in our solar world, and while many of them are exploring space, there is always a chance that one will suddenly appear in an encounter with Earth. New app on the website Neal.fun shows what would happen if someone were to touch any part of the planet.
Developed by Neal Agarwal Asteroid simulator to show the potentially extreme local effects of different types of asteroids. The first step is to pick your asteroid with your choices of iron, stone, carbon and gold, or even an icy comet. The diameter of an asteroid can be raised to 1 mile (1.6 kilometers); its speed may be anywhere from 1,000 to 250,000 miles per hour; and the impact angle can be raised to 90 degrees. After you choose a location on the global map, prepare for chaos.
“I grew up watching movies like a disaster” Deep Impact and Armageddon, so I always wanted to make an instrument that would allow me to launch asteroid impact missions,” Agarwal told Gizmodo in an email. “I think this is a tool for anyone who likes to play what-if” scenarios in their head. The math and physics behind the simulation are based on research papers. Dr. Gareth Collins and Clemens Rumpf Dr and to study the impact of asteroids.
Once you’ve launched an asteroid and guided it to the desired target, Asteroid Simulator will walk you through the devastation. First, it will show you the width and depth of the crater, the number of people killed by the impact, and how much energy was released. He will then walk you through the size and effects of the fireball, impact waves, wind speed, and earthquakes generated by the asteroid.
NASA has its eyes on more than 19,000 near-Earth asteroids. While no known space rock moves to threaten Earth, events such as 2013 Chelyabinsk impact in Russia to remind us of the need for a robust planetary defense. This year, NASA tested whether . Asteroid war limping through spaceas a resounding success.
