Chapter 391: Asteroid Impact (2)
Chapter 391 – Asteroid Impact (2)
Immediately after Chen Yu pressed the [2. Asteroid Impact] option, over a billion people ran out of their hopes, leaned against their windows, or went up to rooftops. They then looked up at the sky with anticipation in their eyes.
[Is the machine malfunctioning? Why don’t I see anything?]
[I can’t wait!]
[Let’s hope for a big asteroid. The type that can smash apart the entire planet.]
[This episode’s product is fantastic! We get to experience addictive catastrophes without actually dying!]
[It would be nice if I could experience this every day…]
[How many perverted creatures am I living together with on this planet?]
“Sixty-six million years ago, an asteroid hit Earth, leading to the extinction of the dinosaurs. However, in actual fact, apart from the areas directly caught within the impact site, the creatures located in other areas of Earth remained mostly unaffected by the impact.”
Opening the nearby window, Chen Yu activated the E·I Force Field and flew out of the Headmaster’s Tower. “The reason dinosaurs went extinct was because of the drastic environmental changes that occurred due to the asteroid impact. Hence, if another asteroid of the same mass hits Earth now, humans can’t go extinct with modern human technological standards.
“We’ll need a much bigger fellow if we want to wipe out the entire human race in one fell swoop.”
As soon as Chen Yu finished speaking, a small speck of light appeared in the sky. Although it is much smaller than the nearby sun, its clarity was not the slightest bit inferior.
Sharpening his spirits, Chen Yu immediately accelerated and flew toward that speck of light.
“Since everyone now knows that the upcoming disaster is just a ‘movie,’ the sense of immersion this time definitely won’t be as good as the artificial intelligence crisis from before. However, now that we’ve come down, we can also get a much more in-depth experience of humans, nature, and the universe.”
In no time at all, Chen Yu flew out of the atmosphere and saw the approaching asteroid.
Chen Yu: “…”
[Sorry, but aside from ‘crap,’ I don’t know what else to say.]
[The same is true for me.]
[What a romantic asteroid…]
[You guys are still calling it an asteroid?]
[I’m so drunk…]
[The host has redefined asteroids.]
The flood of bullet comments expressed the audience’s shock.
This was because the so-called asteroid was…
Actually the moon!
The moon was moving toward Earth!
“This is absurd!” Facepalming, Chen Yu said, “The only thing I can say in this situation is, as expected of the Natural Disaster Generator? It really knows how to kill without sparing anybody.”
The distant moon was currently approaching Earth at a frightening speed. From Chen Yu’s perspective, it was even possible to get a clear view of the many craters on the moon’s surface.
“This is really unexpected.” Without hesitation, Chen Yu turned around and flew back to the surface. “Since the moon is the asteroid, the focus of the disaster isn’t just limited to the impact. There should be many other disasters happening all over the world right now. For example… Look below, everyone.”
After saying so, Chen Yu redirected the camera downward.
Immediately, what appeared on the audiences’ screens was the “rolling” ocean.
“Do you see it? The first thing that comes to mind when you talk about the moon moving closer to Earth is the resulting tidal changes. By the looks of it, those living in coastal areas won’t get to see the scene of the moon crashing into Earth.”
Just like Chen Yu said, for those living in coastal cities in the eastern hemisphere, even if they weren’t present at the beach right now, they could still see a massive tidal wave approaching them from afar. Meanwhile, this tidal wave measured up to several hundred meters in height!
Never had anybody thought that seawater could produce noise rivaling nuclear weapons.
Many tourists who were on the beach and watching the livestream took out their cameras in excitement. Before they could take any photos or videos, though, they were “knocked down” by the sound waves generated by the tidal wave, their internal organs rupturing and their lives ending instantly.
The sky disappeared.
The sun disappeared also.
Like a curtain call, the tidal wave covered everything.
Hoving 500 meters above Shanghai, Chen Yu felt as if the ocean was just underneath his feet and well within arms reach.
“How spectacular…” Chen Yu couldn’t help but sigh.
Simultaneously, a tsunami of bullet comments had appeared in the livestream rooms.
[I see it! The seawater is right above my head!]
[This is so exciting!]
[This is the craftsmanship of nature…]
[The power of nature really is a sight to behold.]
[Nature: I never knew I had such great power.]
[Brothers in Qingdao City, are you still okay?]
[Don’t ask about Qingdao. That place is underwater now.]
[Brothers, see you in the next life!]
[See you in the next life!]
[I’m in Shanghai. I’m going to die soon as well. I’ll be waiting for you guys in the next world.]
[I’m laughing to death. The bullet comments are even more entertaining than the livestream itself…]
“This tidal wave will probably submerge at least half of China, right?” After lowering his altitude by 100 meters, Chen Yu could see the dead fish and tumbling mud in the tidal wave. “As for America’s side, a large part of the seabed there should be exposed by now.
“Friends living in coastal areas, it’s game over for you. See you next round.”
[Make the tidal wave even bigger.]
The humongous tidal wave advanced unimpeded. Everything from skyscrapers to steel bridges was crushed without question.
The tidal wave continued ruthlessly bulldozing through the mainland.
Shanghai, Hangzhou, Nanjing…
Vast tracts of land, mountains, roads, highways, and cities…
Everything humanity had been proud of vanished in the face of mere water.
“There’s nothing else to see here.”
Staring quietly at the distant ocean, Chen Yu turned around and flew towards the plateau ahead. “After the first tsunami hits, the violent tidal force will also disturb Earth’s inner core. Those who are still alive will immediately experience a mega-earthquake.”
“This is the power of celestial bodies. The moon has merely moved closer to Earth, yet it is already capable of dealing a devastating blow to humanity. I have to admit that human civilization in the 21st century is far too fragile.”
Flying at a speed several dozen times faster than sound, Chen Yu arrived at the inland plateau in less than ten minutes.
However, he was evidently late.
The mega earthquake had already taken place here.
Looking down from a bird’s eye view, Chen Yu surprisingly found that the ground was currently behaving like the ocean, and ripples could be seen spreading throughout the land.
However, the difference between solid and liquid made this “rippling” even more lethal!
Let alone the high-rises in cities, even the towering mountains were constantly collapsing and sinking. New peaks were also forming in many flatlands.
[My blood is boiling.]
[Brothers living at plateaus, farewell.]
[The building I’m in has collapsed, but why do I still have a signal?]
[Although I know that nobody will actually die, I still can’t help but shed tears. Humanity really has it hard.]
