In Death From the Skies!: These Are the Ways the World Will End, Plait explores every plausible way that life could come to a screeching halt. Its every disaster movie ever made, says Plait. Its every way possible I could think of that the world could be hurt by a catastrophe. Im writing about complicated topics, but I wanted to make it fun and interesting. Its really just a fun excuse to talk about real science. Plait will discuss and sign his new book tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Boulder Book Store, 1107 Pearl Street in Boulder.
Admission is free. For more information, call 303-447-2074 or go to www.boulderbookstore.com.
