Asteroids: A History (Smithsonian History of Aviation & Spaceflight Series)

Smithsonian History of Aviation & Spaceflight Series

Editorial Review
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. During the past two centuries, the quest for knowledge about asteroids has involved eminent scientists and amateur astronomers, patient research and sudden intuition, advanced technology and the simplest of telescopes, newspaper headlines and Cold War secrets. Curtis Peebles 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. END
