The '''Second Impact''' is a cataclysmic event which occurred in Antarctica on September 13, 2000. It was caused by an [[Contact Experiment|experiment]] conducted on [[Adam]] by a [[Katsuragi Expedition|group of scientists]] led by [[Dr. Katsuragi]]. The experiment reawakened Adam, generating an explosion that melted the Antarctic ice caps and shifted the Earth's axis. The scientists subdued Adam, but they were only successful in limiting the damage and averting humanity's complete extinction. The resulting sea level rise, tsunamis, and armed conflicts eventually wiped out half of the human population, and had massive geopolitical implications for the nations of the Earth.

Their suspicion was more than warranted. In truth, the Second Impact was not an accident, but an intentional act by SEELE. Adhering to the prophecies contained in the [[Dead Sea Scrolls]], SEELE sought to reduce Adam to a more manageable embryonic state. This would help prevent contact between Adam and its progeny, the Angels, whose arrival fifteen years later was predicted by the Dead Sea Scrolls. SEELE decided to pursue this plan, despite knowing that its execution would kill billions of people and permanently alter the planet. Gendo had purposefully left Antarctica just before the contact experiment began, knowing full well what its destructive results would be.
