In the disaster film Deep Impact, a comet hits the Atlantic Ocean off of Cape Hatteras, causing a megatsunami that devastates the coasts of the Atlantic continents, and completely destroys New York City. Here is the clip from the film.


If this were to happen, would the ocean floor of the Atlantic be affected, and would the wreck of the Titanic be destroyed?

Shockwaves probably would have buried the wreck from the sand on the ocean floor if it wasn’t destroyed by the comet itself. It also depends on the size of the comet.

If you haven't seen the movie, there are SPOILERS ahead.

In the movie, the comet is said to be the size of Mount Everest, but a space mission to blow it up accidentally splits it in two smaller pieces (like the Titanic!:D), one six miles wide, and the other a mile and a half. The smaller one hits the Atlantic Ocean, while the remaining bigger one is blown up by the astronauts' spaceship when they undertake a suicide mission to save Earth.
