A shocking simulation has revealed what would happen if an enormous asteroid collided with Earth - and it’s not a pretty picture.

The simulation was created by the Discovery Channel back in 2008, but has been recirculating on Twitter this week.

It imagines what would happen if a 500km-wide asteroid struck the Pacific Ocean.

Shortly after the impact, a huge 10km area of the Earth’s crust peels off the surface, before a shockwave travels at hypersonic speeds.
