Predicting impact fallout


Princeton researchers created the first model to consider the Earth's elliptical shape and surface features in predicting the fallout from a massive meteorite impact. A film based on the Princeton model shows that the impact's seismic waves be uneven and slightly broken, meeting in the area of the globe opposite of the impact in clusters with much lower energy.
