Globaïa has created a compelling infographic on asteroid impacts.

This bit of visual feast is based on the B612 Foundation’s video on incoming events between 2000 and 2013: See that thanks to Spine films at:

The data was collected by a network of sensors that monitors Earth around the clock listening for the infrasound signature of nuclear detonations.

That network detected 26 explosions on Earth ranging in energy from 1-600 kilotons – all caused not by nuclear explosions, but rather by asteroid impacts.

A list of the impacts shown in the video can be found here at:
