In this CG clip, you’ll see “a large meteor [that] exploded ten kilometers above the Earth’s surface in Tunguska, obliterating 830 square miles of woods.” Video after the break.

The meteor – or comet fragment – was only a few tens of meters in diameter, according to modern estimates based on its 15 megatons energy blast. This 3D simulation, however, shows what something like Apophis will do if it hit Earth.
