Asteroid Launcher simulator lets you destroy your hometown

Today, astronomers are monitoring over 2,200 potentially hazardous asteroids larger than 0.6 miles (1 kilometer) across, in Earth’s orbital neighborhood. Fortunately, it’s rare that any will pass close enough to pose a real threat. But that also means anybody interested in seeing what would happen if a space rock that big happened to strike our planet must settle for the dino-killing Chixculub asteroid impact 66 millions of years ago.

Enter Asteroid Launcher (opens in new tab), a new web app that gives asteroid impact fanatics a shot at answering some of their questions. Our friends at PC Gamer called the app  “morbidly informative” for users.
