More than 470 million years ago, a stupendous collision in the Asteroid Belt bombarded the Earth with meteorites of all sizes. New research suggests that the resulting ecological disturbance may have been responsible for the single greatest increase in biological diversity since the origin of complex life. Introducing these fresh discoveries, Ted Nield challenges the orthodox view that meteorite strikes are bad news for life on Earth. Interpreted as omens of doom or objects of power, Meteorites have been the stuff of legend throughout human history. Featuring a wealth of fascinating characters and great discoveries, Incoming! takes a fresh look at our falling skies.
