NASA Published a Map with the Asteroid Impacts since 1994 [Space]
posted November 18 2014 19:32.24 by Giorgos Lazaridis




Yes, our home planet has been through worst in the past (Early and Late Heavy Bombardment). Things these days are much better, I mean we do not experience Asteroids "the size of Texas" (Armageddon) every now and then... Still, 556 asteroids impacts were recorded during the period 1994-2013

This diagram maps the data gathered from 1994-2013 on small asteroids impacting Earth's atmosphere to create very bright meteors, technically called "bolides" and commonly referred to as "fireballs". Sizes of red dots (daytime impacts) and blue dots (nighttime impacts) are proportional to the optical radiated energy of impacts measured in billions of Joules (GJ) of energy, and show the location of impacts from objects about 1 meter (3 feet) to almost 20 meters (60 feet) in size.
