history tells us...

THE LAST METEOR TO GLOBALLY IMPACT EARTH HAPPENED 2.5 MILLION YEARS AGO. SCIENCE TELLS US THAT THE RECURRENCE INTERVAL OF A METEOR LARGE ENOUGH TO DESTROY MANKIND IS ONCE EVERY MILLION YEARS.

Final Words

I chose to do this project because I had an interest with disaster and apocalypse after taking a geology course on natural hazards and my love for post-apocalyptic/grime literature. While I did enjoy this project, my next one might be more focused on the humane aspect of these topics.

What is this?

1

IT'S POSSIBLE BUT...

LET ME CLARIFY THAT AN EARTHQUAKE OF THIS MAGNITUDE IS

POSSIBLE. HOWEVER, IT WILL MOST LIKELY NOT HAPPEN IN OUR LIFETIME.

3

history tells us...

NEW YORK CITY HAS SA 5.0 MAGNITUDE EARTHQUAKE ONCE A

CENTURY, A 6.0 MAGNITUDE QUAKE EVERY 670 YEARS. AN EARTHQUAKE WITH THE SAME MAGNITUDE AS THE MOVIE HAPPENS ONCE EVERY 3400 YEARS.

FIRST OF ALL...

HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN

SUBTLE FAULT LINES ARE LOCATED WITHIN THE MANHATTAN AREA. NYC IS ALSO NEAR THE RAMPO FAULT ZONE. EARTHQUAKES ARE CAUSED BY MOVEMENT OF PLATES MEANING IN DUE TIME, NYC WILL EXPERIENCE A EARTHQUAKE THAT CAN CAUSE SOME DAMAGE.

We've all seen bad disaster movies before. In all of these we're either killed falling into the cracks of the Earth or crushed by a flaming ball of molten rock. Should we be worrying about things like these when there are other things to look out for? These movies mostly take place in The Big Apple, NYC.

 

The reality is that there are a million things more likely to happen (and potentially kill you).

THE CHANCE OF THIS HAPPENING IS SIMILAR TO

BEING BORN WITH 11 TOES

FOR WHEN YOU NEED PICK UP THAT PEN YOU DROPPED ON THE FLOOR THAT WOULD USUALLY BE OUT OF REACH.

BEING WRONGLY CONVICTED

WORRY MORE ABOUT OUR COURT SYSTEM, NOT THE

APOCALYPSE.

YOU CAN'T STOP A METEOR

THE MOVIE REDIRECTED THE METEOR BY GOING BEHIND IT AND SPLITTING IT IN HALF. FIRST OF ALL, YOU CAN'T OUTSPEED A METEOR GOING 160,000 MPH. SECOND OF ALL, WE CURRENTLY DON'T HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY TO PRODUCE ENOUGH ENERGY TO DESTROY A METEOR, MUCH LESS REDIRECT ITS COURSE.

THE CHANCE OF THIS HAPPENING IS SIMILAR TO

several things....

1

THIS WON'T HAPPEN IN OUR LIFETIME

WHILE IT IS POSSIBLE, WE WILL BE LONG GONE BY THEN. THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO STILL WORRY ABOUT THE METEOR DESTROYING US ALL. NASA TRACKS ALL POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS OBJECTS (PHOs) THAT HAVE A COLLISION COURSE WITH EARTH'S ORBIT.

1

WE KNOW IT'S FICTIONAL

YES, WE KNOW IT WAS INTENDED TO BE A FICTIONAL FILM, BUT IT DOESN'T MEAN WE CAN'T OBSERVE AND STATE SEVERAL FACTS ABOUT IT AND COMPARING IT TO REALITY.

2

can zombies exist?

SCIENCE SAYS NO, BIOLOGY SAYS NO. IT WOULD REQUIRE SUPERNATURAL ORGANS, SOME FORM OF NEURAL TRANSMISSION AFTER DECOMPOSITION, AND OTHER THINGS.

3

....ARE YOU SURE?

THEORIES SAY THAT THERE MAY BE SEVERAL WAYS ZOMBIES SOMEHOW EXIST. SOME INCLUDE FUNGI INFECTIONS, BRAIN PARASITES, NEUROTOXINS, NANOMACHINES, ETC. BUT AT THE MOMENT, THE CHANCES OF A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE IN NYC IS IMPOSSIBLE.

THE CHANCE OF THIS HAPPENING IS SIMILAR TO

IF PIGS COULD FLY, NOBODY WOULD BE EATING CHICKEN WINGS.
