The End of the World

The Large Hadron Collider didn’t bring about the end of the world like scientists feared it might. That hasn’t stopped people from theorizing how the apocalypse will come about and how it will look if that day ever comes, however.

This simulation shows a haunting version of the end of the world that comes about from a 500km asteroid. While the subject of this video is morbid, it’s the execution that is most fascinating. This video is a stunning art piece in itself. It shows just how far video simulations have come--and how grateful we should be for every day that passes.
