Still a major pathfinding book ten years after publication. “Bob Zubrin really, nearly alone, changed our thinking on this issue.”—Carl Sagan
 
Probably the first novel to describe realistically the effects of a comet striking the planet Earth.
 
An informative introduction to the fascinating topic of possible life on other worlds, providing an appropriate level of background and detail.
