Product description


'This book is essential reading for those concerned about the survival of our civilisation far into the future.' Spaceflight

'The book's economical, lucid style is entertaining and accessible to non-experts … It also handles technical concepts well, thanks to the author's training in geology and his subsequent work directing educational films.' Robert S. McMillan, Journal of Geoscience Education

'This is a very good book if you are interested in the history of the K/T impact.' Peter M. Sheehan

Book Description

A cosmic crash 65 million years ago wiped out the dinosaurs, killed two-thirds of life on Earth, and left a crater now buried off the coast of Mexico. In this thrilling scientific detective story, Frankel brilliantly unfolds our present knowledge of this cosmic impact and aftermath.
