The True Impact Of An Asteroid!!



Disaster movies rarely point out that an asteroid traveling en-route to Earth is most likely going to land in the sea, considering that the vast majority of our planet is made up of water. 

Nevertheless, that scenario is no less threatening for us poor humans. Scientists from the Los Alamos National Laboratory have created a computer model that analyzes what happens when an asteroid lands in the ocean. 

Their video demonstrating their research won the Best Scientific Visualization & Data Analytics Showcase award at Supercomputing 2016.

 

Using high-end computer models, the researchers looked to see how exactly these shockwaves behave. Awesome.
