Award-winning video reveals what would happen if an asteroid hit the Ocean (video)



Oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface. If an asteroid were to strike us, it would probably land in the water. A new simulation reveals that the destructive waves would be unable to travel long distances, preventing city-swallowing tsunamis from reaching the shorelines. This award-winning animation from Los Alamos National Lab shows a detailed simulation of how it might happen.
