Published by Fourth Estate. 1st 1986. Very good condition in a very good dustwrapper.
Every day tons of cosmic dust enter the Earth's atmosphere and burn up as falling starts. Sometimes larger stones fall from the sky to the land as meteorites, perhaps causing minor damage in the process.... This book draws together different branches of science and presents a picture of why such collisions occur, what happens when they do, and what the consequences of one might be for the Earth and its inhabitants.
