You wouldn't die immeadiatly... the website only calculates crater size... chances are there would be radioactive fallout (depending on composition and mass) or the sheer force of the seismic shockwave could literaly rip you apart... 'course I'm talking doomsday mass, below that is very different...

It wouldn't be radioactive . You're talking about a 2 year winter that is caused by massive dustclouds blocking out the sun.

By all means it would be radioactive... your talking about massive peice of cosmic rock teraing a whole in the o-zone... thats why I said it depends on the size... if the asteroid is big enough it will open the floodgates for UV rays...

EDIT: One more thing... we do not know the entire composition of wayward celestial bodies... Flash frozen iron, plus plenty of possibly radioactive materials... all of which would be pulverized on impact and scattered...

I'm sorry but an asteroid hitting the earth does not produce a nuclear, or radioactive explosion of any kind. It does however if large enough produce a massive dustcloud. It also won't "tear a hole in the ozone" permanently. It is nowhere large enough to have a profound effect on the ozone.

Move your hand through the air. Did you create a total vaccum, devoid of O2? Maybe for an iota of a second. Ozone is o2....with another O attached to it. Ozone would be like "OSHIT HERE COMES A BIG ASS ROCK!!!111" then be pushed away, then come back saying "Man. That was a big fookin' rock, eh?"


Im assuming all O3 molecules are canadian.

Fallout n. 1.The slow descent of minute particles of debris in the atmosphere following an explosion, especially the descent of radioactive debris after a nuclear explosion. 2.The particles that descend in this fashion.
A rock hitting the earth at a massive speed would cause an explosion... the dust cloud would contain radioactive particles that were part of the asteroid... while most noteably the word fallout is used to describe the effect of a nuclear explosion it can be applyed to any explosin thats leaves articles light enough to be despersed across a large area over an amount of time produces fallout... Radioactive Particles= Radioactive fallout...

... ... why I feel liek arguing this so much I have no idea ... besides nobody knows what will happen... the only cataclysmic event on this scale that ever happened on this planet is undocumented, all we know is that it killed a bunch of big lizards...

ROFL

Very well put. There would be no radiation from a big chunk of rock hitting earth unless that big chunk of rock was radioactive to begin with. Same as throwing a rock at a pile of sand. That's all an asteroid crashing into earth is, only super sized.

Yet you are assuming that the asteroid is itself composed of radioactive material which is highly doubtful. You are describing a highly unlikely situation, which in your first post you made very unclear, making you sound like you're crazy.
