Hello everyone, I was wondering if any of you would be knowledgeable in what would occur if the Meteor or Asteroid that killed the dinosaurs fragmented before impact? I personally was equating the impact scenario to that of shotgun ammunition. I related the full asteroid to that of a slug, and the shattered meteor to a mix of bird and buck shot. Would any damage be mitigated or altered? How would the fragments interact to land versus water? Finally could the dinosaurs have survived this type of impact? Thanks for taking your time to read and/or reply to this post, I love this community.
