Every year, millions of asteroids and comets or ''stray bullets'' streak through the skies, and tons of small meteorites strike our planet! Some 65 million years ago, dinosaurs were wiped off the face of the earth, in what many believe was the aftermath of a massive cosmic collision. Could something like this happen again? Scientists believe that the impact of an asteroid only a mile wide would be globally catastrophic. Join extraordinary geologist Eugene Shoemaker and his wife Carolyn who have remapped the heavens with their discoveries of more than 30 comets and hundreds of asteroids. Now that we know what's out there, how can we defend ourselves?

I purchased this DVD from [...] just a few years ago. Also, I even saw this on PBS or KQED ch 9. I liked the documentary alot when it first aired on my local television and watched it on my player a few times. One drawback about this old classic it doesn't have any new updates about any future NASA Asteroids missions! If it did then it would be a great reference DVD libarary for anyone interest about space. It was fair, Ok Pretty Good. Thanks Very Much.
