This is neat shit.
Have you ever sat up on a hilltop, looking out over the green landscape of Lancaster County, and wondered what would happen if a 100 meter diameter asteroid traveling at 50k/s were to zoom through the atmosphere at a 90 degree angle and impact New Holland?
Well now you can calculate it, and determine total energy, crater diameter, thermal radiation, seismic effects, ejecta size and range, and intensity of air blast.
Would you hear the fireball that flattens Chicago, could you live through what killed the Dinosaurs, how small of a boloid would it take, landing in your back yard, to give you really good stories to tell without wrecking your house?
