Cosmic Collisions: Asteroid vs. Comet

By Dr. Marc J. Kuchner

Illustrated by Matt Schu

EXPLOSIONS! DEBRIS! COLLISIONS OF COSMIC PROPORTION! For the kid who loves to smash and crash, this is the perfect series from MIT Kids Press.

There’s a comet speeding in from the outer solar system, and it’s about to slam into an asteroid! Who will be left standing after this interplanetary smackdown? The first in a series of full-colour, illustrated, non-fiction readers for ages seven to nine, Asteroid Versus Comet narrates the oncoming collision of two of space’s most epic bodies. Who will prevail? The pockmarked asteroid, a veteran fighter who’s already taken some punches? Or the comet, with a heart of ice and rock and a tail that stretches millions of miles? Read on to find out – and learn lots about space and astrophysics along the way.
