Description
Asteroids suggest images of a catastrophic impact with Earth, triggering infernos, tidal waves, famine and death - but these scenarios have obscured the larger story of how asteroids have been discovered and studied. This work shows how ideas about the orbiting boulders have evolved. The author describes how such phenomena as the Moon's craters and dinosaur extinction were gradually, and by some scientists grudgingly, accepted as the results of asteroid impacts.
