Ever wonder what it would be like if a meteor the size of a humpback whale hit the Earth??? Well, wonder no more…

Impact: Earthcreated by Purdue University

This thing is kinda cool – it lets you set a whole bunch of different variables about your object, including size, density, impact velocity, and then spews out a bunch of data based on your selections. My whale apparently was too porous and pretty much just splattered without even leaving a crater, but your results may vary, so have fun virtually chucking things at our planet with absolutely no catastrophic side effects whatsoever!
