Exploring abrupt climate change induced by comets and asteroids during human history

Again, again, again and again: Jupiter hit far more often than NASA models predict

  1. This is of the side we see, how about the dark side ? Is it impacted as well ? Is that accounted for when crunching numbers ?

  2. Great video! Has there been any estimates as to the size of the meteorite that struck Jupiter? I assume it was quite small if only regional damge is estimated for a similar sized object striking Earth.

  3. Sorry I see now on the photo a few hundred metres, somewhat larger that Tunguska, so yes quite a bit of regional damage here on Eartth would defintely result.
