Asteroids On Collision With Earth Unstoppable?

Though it may seem like world leaders are panicking for no reason, the paper acknowledges that asteroids of this magnitude striking Earth aren’t a common occurrence.

The resulting ejecta from such an impact would propel an immense amount of heat into our atmosphere, which would then rain down on Earth and cause firestorms.

Conversely, if asteroids this size were to strike the ocean, we’d face the threat of massive tsunamis that have the potential to level cities, and with that, any governing bodies that are local to the impact.
