So, what if an asteroid were to hit Earth today? Any asteroid falling from the sky would have a tremendous amount of energy. Here's a typical example. In 2028, the asteroid 1997XF11 will come extremely close to Earth but will miss the planet. If something were to change and it did hit Earth, what you would have is a mile-wide asteroid striking ...

On Monday, September 9, 2019, an asteroid about 40 meters in diameter could hit the planet Earth at 44,000 kilometers per hour.. The impact may resemble a devastation that of the asteroid, which fell in 1908 in Tunguska (Siberia). It has destroyed an area of 2,000 square kilometers (50 kilometers in diameter) and toppled 80 million trees in the taiga

The Kamchatka superbolide is estimated to have had a mass of roughly 1600 tons, and a diameter of 9 to 14 meters depending on its density, making it the third largest asteroid to impact Earth since 1900, after the Chelyabinsk meteor and the Tunguska event. The fireball exploded in an airburst 25.6 kilometres (15.9 mi) above Earth's surface.
