10 great collision of space objects with the Earth

Imagine staring at the sky that night and saw a small dot, then that point turned into a bigger doubled, up to the night sky looks a bit brighter, then you realize that the point size of the city of Bandung, and then split the night air with the speed of sound coming right at you, BOOM!
Mega-tsunami like impact damage, earthquake, volcano eruption in the corners of the earth and the loss of daylight to dark for years, congratulations to you that he will kill you slowly.
The result now we will see the largest crater regions - regions of the earth dibelahan others who have been hit by asteroids, based on the diameter of the deceased.

49 000 years ago a rock star size "only" 150 ft and weight of + / - 300 000 tonnes of contained nickel and iron with a speed of 40 000 miles per hour crashed into the earth, the result of a meteor impact could be seen 55 km east Flasgaff, Arizona, USA called the Barringer Crater. This crater is the best preserved crater until now, the same forces that produced 20 million tons of TNT explosion!

The result is the diameter of 148 ft (45 m) with a depth of 175 m, was discovered by Daniel Barringer in 1902 for the mine, until today is still family-owned crater Barringer. Also called Meteor Crater, Coon Butte, and Canyon Diablo.

Being at 30 km south-east of Kumasi, Ghana. Known for its natural lake when the lake Bosumtwi is the impact of a meteor impact 1.3 million years ago.
Depth of 45 km diameter 10.6 m. Continuous rain flooded the former makes the collisions formed a lake. Trust the local population of the lake is a place where souls of the dead to confront the god Twi.

08.Deep Bay, Canada

Located in the southwest, Lake in Saskatchewan, Canada with a width of 13 km and a depth of 220 m occurred about 100 million years ago. Judging from its structure, it is a terrifying crash.

Aorunga when a meteorite is an area of one mile (1.6 km) that crashed into earth around 200-300 million years ago, in a region in the Sahara desert north of Chad, Africa, the collisions can occur roughly once a million years .

Approximately 142 million years ago, a comet with a width of 22 km struck the mainland Autralia, with the speed of 40 km / sec, comparable to 22 000 megaton TNT explosion, wow. . . The results are quite impressive that is left has a diameter of 24 km with a depth of 5000 m.

Located in Labrador, Canada. Mistastin Lake is a form of the meteorite hit the earth, the result of a hole with a diameter of 28 km was gaping at the Earth's crust.

Wooaaw. . . which is more powerful, about 290 million years ago an asteroid hit the earth close to the twin coastal Hudson Bay of Canada, the result is a hole with a diameter of 32 km of large asteroids, and 22 km from the small asteroid.

At an altitude of 13,000 feet (3900 m) above sea level, there are Kara - Kul. also known sebagaiQarokul: 16 miles (25km) wide lake in the mountains of the Pamirs in Tajikistan, near the Chinese border. The lake is actually located within 28 miles (45km) wide circular depression, which was hit by a rock star more than five million years ago, Kara-kul found only recently, through satellite imagery.

Manicouagan Reservoir (Lake Manicouagan) also known as the "eye of Quebec", about 212 million years ago with a 5 km wide asteroid hitting the earth, leaving a giant hole with a diamter of 100 km.

Buried beneath the Yucat√°n Peninsula in Mexico, near the Chicxulub village (which means "tail of the devil" in Mayan), this is an ancient crater with the greatest impact with a diameter of 107 km. The collision occurred approximately 65 million years ago when a comet or asteroid about the size of a small town mengahantam (equivalent to 100 teratons from TNT) on Earth and cause a mega-tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions around the world.
