A gas of good time while discussing death
Phil Plait’s book Death From the Skies is a informative yet guide to
the possible ways the life on Earth may end. From the normal reasons
such as asteroid collisions, alien invasion (not the Mexican kind but
the ones from outer space) and the expansion of the sun to the more
exotic like GRBs and blackholes are all discussed in the book. The
author takes a humourous yet informative look at all these topics and
more. The only thing you might need to do is brush up on is sci-fi
references. He gives excellent description of what will happen to the
planet and anything on it, from being boiled, to be stretched or turned
to grey goo.
And yes for the all the Bablogees he wrote a book.
