Alvaro Gracia Montoya of MetaBallStudios created a terrifying animation that shows how the size of asteroids compares to some other things.
The video starts with an image of a human next to one of the smaller rocks and continues by showing bigger and bigger asteroids compared to a truck, a house, and a city landscape. In a matter of seconds, we get to see the big asteroids that could easily cover the entire city like New York.
If you’re not scared by what you see in the video, remember that in 2018, the B612 Foundation told The Daily Star that “it’s 100 percent certain we’ll be hit, but we’re not 100 percent sure when.” This was the same year when Stephen Hawking wrote that asteroids are the Earth’s biggest threat in his last book Brief Answers to the Big Questions.
