Energy Considerations

The damage caused by the great impact and the Base Delta Zero bombardment are clearly similar; thus the accumulated energy injected into the planet by Wrath's turbolaser batteries must be comparable to the kinetic energy delivered by the asteroid. A five-hundred kilometre wide iron spheroid would mass more than five-hundred quadrillion metric tons and deliver >1e29 joules of kinetic energy at a velocity of twenty kilometres per second. This is equivalent to a twenty-six exaton bomb (26,000,000,000,000 megatons TNT) which is consistent with the firepower calculations on the Base Delta Zero page.
