Asteroids bombard our atmosphere all the time. Some are harmless, burning up in a flash of light. But others explode with a great sonic boom, smashing windows and throwing people to the ground. Worst of all, some asteroids strike our planet, blasting out massive craters and destroying everything nearby on impact.

Follow the award-winning author Elizabeth Rusch into the field with scientists as they search for dangerous asteroids in space, study asteroids that have smashed into the ground, and make plans to prevent an asteroid strike if one ever threatens our planet.

Elizabeth Rusch is the author of award-winning nonfiction titles for children, including previous Scientists in the Field titles, Eruption!,The Mighty Mars Rovers and The Next Wave. Elizabeth lives in Oregon with her

รข?? "Another excellent entry into the series. Purchase this to excite space buffs and inspire future scientists." โ€“School Library Journal, starred review

"Lavishly illustrated with Anderson's photographs, this wide-ranging sample of asteroid science presumes quite a bit of previous knowledge but will reward the enthusiast." โ€”Kirkus

Accompanied by photographs of scientists in action and requisite space shots, the book concludes with citizen science connections and resources, and is sure to have an impact on young astronomers." โ€”Booklist
