A video showing the level of destruction that the city-killer asteroid Apophis will cause once it hits Earth has been posted on Youtube. As seen in the video, the asteroid can cause a wide-scale effect upon impact.

Apophis, named after an ancient Egyptian spirit of chaos and destruction, caught the attention of the public in 2004 after it was revealed that it had a great chance of hitting Earth. According to astronomers, the asteroid is expected to approach the planet on April 13, 2029.

Although an impact in 2029 has already been ruled out, astronomers are not so confident about Earth’s safety in the future. Due to several factors in space, such as the effect of gravitational forces on the trajectory of Apophis, the asteroid could still change its course and travel on a direct collision path with the planet.

With this, the YouTube channel Space Sim released a simulation video to show what would happen if Apophis, which has a diameter of around 1,214 feet, hits Earth.

In the video, the point of impact occurred in the Atlantic Ocean near the Bermuda Triangle. Due to the explosion caused by the initial impact, fragments from the asteroid fly off into space before causing secondary impact events on different parts of Earth.

“In this simulation the asteroid first hits and then sends fragments from the collision back into space which orbited the Earth for a short period of time before coming back to Earth,” Space Sim wrote.

As seen in the video, the initial impact of the asteroid sent a fiery shockwave that incinerated everything in its path including New Guinea, northern Australia, parts of the U.S. and much of Borneo.

Although it wasn’t shown in the simulation, the asteroid impact would have most likely caused a massive tsunami since the gigantic space rock landed in the ocean. The waves generated by the impact would have traveled for several miles and leveled anything in their path.

This means that for those who managed to survive the initial impact and explosion from the asteroid would have to deal with the towering waves of the mega-tsunami.
