We discussed crises like nuclear war, supervolcanoes, and the rise of Limp Bizkit, have we not?

Now let's discuss a popular "historical what-if" scenario— the Tunguska Event strikes a major city. It's an exceedingly slim chance, but in this timeline, that chance comes true.


Tunguska hits St Petersburg


WI: Tunguska meteoroid explodes over city?

And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.

If this occurred I honestly believe that we'd be a lot more serious about the threat posed by asteroids today then a afterthought that we keep in the back of our minds mostly done by astronomers. Nations like Russia and the united states would probably have departments within their defense agencies with real plans and infrastructure to carry out such defense missions. 

Sadly as of now I doubt we can really do anything if it is within a few years of impact as it isn't seen as a big enough threat. In this alternate future we would have taken it as seriously as nuclear war as we'd understand the threat and the people would of demanding action.
