Raindrop

Q. What if a rainstorm dropped all of its water in a single giant drop?

  • In this storm, all that water instead condenses into one giant drop, a sphere of water over a kilometer in diameter.
  • The drop is now falling at 90 meters per second (200 mph).
  • When the water contacted the surface, you’d be crushed to death—the shockwave would briefly create pressures exceeding those at the bottom of the Mariana Trench.
  • Splash continues outward, demolishing all structures out to distances of 20 or 30 kilometers.
