My god... This video is worth the watch. I can't believe it didn't just break the planet in half

It was only 6-10km.

While a big rock, Earth was hit by bigger before the dinosaurs.

Earth can handle big rocks, life on the other hand not so much.

you think that's bad, we still have a molten mantle from when planet Theia smacked into Earth and created the moon.
That was a rough weekend!

So what I got out of it is Drill Baby Drill!!. Less oil in the earth less time for the sun blocking hydrocarbons in the atmosphere. Also your solar
panels won't work if all that oil is left in the earth.

Chicxulub crater where the asteroid is believed to have struck, at one point was estimated to be 110 miles wide and 5 miles deep.

That's a big ass dent

Some say this might be AKA Wormwood. Who knows…

No worries though, it’ll pass between us and the moon…..closer to us. We’re good. It’ll be here on Friday the 13th for you superstitious types.

There is a theory that the impact caused the Deccan Traps to erupt even more than they were or to begin erupting.

They were antipodal from the impact at the time.

Yea. Imagine a grain of sand and imagine a bowling ball. That's roughly the scale we are talking about. It was a trivial event from the standpoint of Earth as a rocky planet but it was rather catastrophic from the standpoint of the biosphere on the surface of that rocky planet.

I watched an interesting documentary where they stated the asteroid hit at exactly the right time/location.

A little later and it's likely nothing would have survived... dead planet.  A little earlier and the dinosaurs would have survived, which means homo sapiens might have never existed OR would have come along much later.

I just spent a couple months working close to the site where the impact happened, Merida mx. The burnt layers of rock are clearly evident in the road cuts there. Like 10-15' of just burnt pink limestone.

Cool video OP.  Thanks for posting

So if FJB doesnt get us all killed by getting us in WW3, we're pretty much doomed anyway.

An impact crater below the Antarctic ice was antipodal to the Siberian Traps at the time they began erupting. The resulting P waves were theorized - through reflectional focusing - to have caused a Mag 12 quake in the area where the eruptive sequence began. This would have cracked the roof rock overlaying the head of a mantle plume that had been intruding into the province and thus allowed the magma to reach the surface.

This.  A few hours earlier or later, it would have hit in the deep Atlantic or Pacific.

2 issues with Video in the first minute, narrator says a few things that grinds my gears.  Says “we all know … killed the dinosaurs” and a few moments later, says “wiped out all life on earth.”  No, not everyone believes this and it is the most popular hypothesis at this moment, but certainly not universally accepted.  Also, if it wiped out all life, there would be no life on earth today, unless you believe that God re-created all life on earth after impact (assuming a religious person) or, another spontaneous life generation from the primordial soup … again (for the non-religious evolutionist.)

I stopped watching.
