This is an amazing video and fact! Between 2000 to 2013, 26 asteroids were registered hitting our planet Earth with an explosive power larger than our most destructive weapons!
These nuke-scale asteroids are represented in this amazing interactive map:
7 of these monster fireballs touched the ground (New South Wales, Australia: 11.09.2005; Egypt: 12.09.2006; Sudan: 10.07.2009; South Sulawesi: 10.08.2009; California: 04.22.2012; Chelyabinsk, Russia: 02.15.2013; Santiago del Estero, Argentina: 04.21.2013). The other massive meteors (19) fell in the oceans… We were lucky again!
