Thomas Brown: Meteor

As a species, mankind can be preoccupied with its own imminent destruction. Newspapers revel in their role as harbingers of doom, seemingly delighting in any apparent apocalypse heading our way (remember the Millennium Bug?!) and countless internet pages are devoted to this cult of catastrophe, whether it’s the Mayan calendar or Nostradamus’ gloomy predictions.
