Solar System > Splashdown (1999)


A vast asteroid, 7 miles (10 km) across, slams into the Earth at a speed measured in kilometres per second. It was an event such as this which ended the reign of the dinosaurs and other species some 65 million years ago, ending the Cretaceous period and beginning the Paleogene. We see the impact as it may have looked from space.
