Which asteroid has hit the Earth?

The Chicxulub Event 65 million years ago an asteroid roughly 10 to 15 kilometers (6 to 9 miles) in diameter hit Earth in what is now Mexico. The impact killed 70% of all species on Earth, including the dinosaurs.

The 3 largest asteroids to hit Earth
The Vredefort crater in South Africa: Created about 2 billion years ago, this 160 Kms large crater is remnant of the largest asteroid to hit Earth. The Chicxulub crater in Mexico: This was the dinosaur killer asteroid which hit the Earth 66 million years ago.

A NASA spacecraft has hit an asteroid in an unprecedented test designed to prevent potentially devastating collisions with Earth. NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) spacecraft crashed into the asteroid Dimorphos about 11 million kilometres (6.8 million miles) from Earth at about 23:00 GMT on Monday.

Will the asteroid hit Earth? Here's the latest news. According to Live Science, the asteroid is not going to hit Earth €” it will pass by our planet from about 2.5 million miles away, at a speed of 47,200 miles per hour.May 23, 2022

NASA System Predicts Impact Of Small Asteroid

Asteroid 2022 EB5 was too small to pose a hazard to Earth, but its discovery marks the fifth time that any asteroid has been observed before impacting into the atmosphere. A small asteroid hit Earth's atmosphere over the Norwegian Sea before disintegrating on March 11, 2022.

Even though the asteroid Apophis won't hit Earth for at least another century, its scientific impact will be tremendous. Jump to: Background. Apophis will not hit Earth.Sept 22, 2021

Earth has had a near miss with a car-sized asteroid that wasn't spotted by Nasa. The space rock came as close as 1,830 miles to the planet, which is the closest recorded close shave Earth has ever had with an asteroid!

Yes, We Can Survive A Deadly Asteroid Impact Just As Our Early Ancestors Did. There is new evidence that our early ancestors survived a kilometer-sized asteroid impact in Southeast Asia. The asteroid, which hit Earth around 800,000 years ago, was powerful enough to launch debris and dust across Earth's surface.
