I care about this!
The impact of a 50-meter asteroid is not cataclysmic--unless you happen to be underneath it. Yeomans points out that a similar-sized object formed the mile wide Meteor Crater in Arizona when it struck about 50,000 years ago. "That asteroid was made of iron," he says, "which made it an especially potent impactor." Also, in 1908, something about the size of 2012 DA14 exploded in the atmosphere above Siberia, leveling hundreds of square miles of forest. Researchers are still studying the "Tunguska Event" for clues to the impacting object.
Would an iron asteriod really explode in atmoshpere?
Not so sure.
Researchers are still studying the "Tunguska Event" ,,, hey Elites, here is my question! This shit happened in 1908 and we are in 2013 , its been 105 years and you are still researching on this phenomenon.
Are you really telling the truth NaSa?
after 105y they know what happened, there just obeying there orders.
iron would only explode if it was moving like a bat out of hell. The Meteor would a cometary meteor and not something that migrated from the asteroid belt. The crater in Arizona is what you would expect from belt rubble.
Worry is a misuse of the imagination.
