Phil ‘Bad Astronomy‘ Plait has just had a new book published which looks well worth checking out: Death From the Skies! These Are the Ways the World Will End (Amazon US and UK). He’s posted an excerpt from the Introduction at BA, and has also been doing some regular blog entries touching on the topics discussed in the book, such as this one on the odds of being killed by a meteorite.
I do have to say I found it quite humorous though, to see Phil Plait anthropomorphising the Universe in the very first lines of the book, considering his penchant for getting worked up when ‘pseudoscientists’ do similar things. What’s that I see in your eye Phil…?
Update: Bonjour à Bad Astronomy. Riposte.
