The Asteroid Wedge of Doom...

Here's my concept of how it could happen.

It's not the actual explosion, which I imagine would be like the planet Alderaan in Star Wars after the Death Star hit it, except with much bigger chunks...

The asteroid would pierce the earth, similar to an arrow going into a tree, at the Mariana Trench, the lowest spot on the Earth's crust, and a natural "weak spot." Being composed of Iron, ice, and gases, the intense heat and pressure of the Earth's core would cause the end of the asteroid to heat up, but the wedge shape would prevent the magma, as well as the steam and expanding gases from escaping. The resulting pressure would then result in an explosion great enough to blow the planet apart...
Done with Photoshop CS2 in a bit over an hour.

It was a fun brain stretcher!
