The Marty Bass and Don Scott team took another look at Planetology with their “Web Extra” feature on January 13, 2009. Part of our discussion focused on the chances of a Near Earth Object (NEO) striking Earth, (a process that has shaped all the solid worlds of the solar system) and what we may be able to do about it.
Check out our ten-minute conversation on WJZ-TV.com. Thanks to Marty and Don for hosting another great book talk.
