Would a meteor impact, like the one that killed the dinosaurs, cause mankind to go extinct if it happened again today?

    If we got a warning, probably some people could survive in underground bunkers or at the bottom of the sea, or of course in orbit, but we would have to build self-sufficient colonies to do that.

    We would be more ready for it

    We are technologically more advanced

    We could prepare by tracking it to maybe pinpointing the Impact site even

    Given enough time we can all move out of the way of the target site and live in nuclear Bunkers for as long as the world settles again

    Probably, since that particular rock did some major damage to our atmosphere also, this lasted for quite some time and quite a large percentage of the animal life was also killed off after the main event.

    Yes, very likely it would. The debris would spread worldwide and block out the sun. Very few plants would grow and all people would starve.

    I doubt if it would because humans are so widespread. What could happen is debris getting into the earth's atmosphere and blocking out sunlight, preventing crops from growing properly.

    the 20 meter rock that almost clobbered chelyabinsk in siberia broke windows surprised the **** out of residents,,,,,,a hundred years ago a 40M rock hit the russian province of vanavar  river,tunguska region and

    flattened Cs of sq miles of forest killing reindeer,throwing herder ilya potopovich to the ground,,broke dishes in his cabin out in the boonies,,deafened him for weeks,,damn thing knocked him out.

    had it struck leningrad,thousands would have been killed..the thing hit tunguska at an oblique angle,,a more steep angle and more damage would have resulted

    rocks the size of arkansas  or staten island are out there,,

    one of these,,if they hit us,we are talkin extinction event,,kiss your asses gootbye

    Very likely.  Though as humans are just about everywhere, some might escape.

    Yes. That impact back them wiped out 75% of all species. Such an impact now would destroy the food chain, and the best result for humanity would be simple starvation.
