Description: 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.
