Death from the Skies!: The science behind the end of the world...

Death from the Skies!   - Plait, Philip This is a book by Philip Plait. You might know him as the Bad Astronomer, which doesn't mean that his astronomy is substandard of course. I liked his writing before, so I was happy to finally get around to reading Death from the Skies.

It's a wonderful book, and seriously scary. Especially in the beginning.
