If you're as riddled with anxiety as I am, you've spent plenty of time thinking about how the world will end. There are enormous underground volcanoes that could erupt and block out the sun. There are super-plagues that could spread across an entire population in hours and asteroids that could hit Earth. There are all the causes of global warming that could just... keep on doing what they're doing.
And those asteroids? They can just thwack the earth at any moment, and then it's goodbye all life on the planet.
For the anxious, that's a horror story. But for the curious? That's a choose-your-own-adventure. Because while we intuitively know we would die, we don't know for sure how we'd die.
But the folks over at Vox dug up a study that explains what exactly would happen to our puny human bodies if our planet was struck by a space-rock the size of Texas. Let's find out what would go down.
