9780071354608: Cosmic Pinball: The Science of Comets, Meteors and Asteroids

Based on the latest scientific research. Cosmic Pinball details what is happening right here in our planetary neighborhood. It pieces together the story of "rogue rocks" -- from the benevolent Leonid meteor showers, to Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9's powerful impact on Jupiter, to the KT Event asteroid that is currently credited with wiping out the dinosaurs. Going beyond millennial hype. Cosmic Pinball provides a unique framework tying together both history and today's research -- to prevent a sound overview of the science of comets, meteors, and asteroids.

Summers and Allen have brought together three leading astronomers who are at the forefront of this cutting-edge field: Guy Consolmagno, Ph.D., Vatican Observatory: Daniel David Durda, Ph.D., University of Colorado at Boulder: David Kring, Ph. D., University of Arizona at Tucson.
