The Prophet and the Astronomer
A Scientific Journey to the End of TimeBook - 2002
This text explores the shared quest of prophets and astronomers to explain the strange phenomena of our skies - from the apocalypse foretold in Revelations to modern science's ongoing identification of multiple catacysmic threats, including the impact of comets and asteroids on earthly life; the likelihood of future collisions; the meaning of solar eclipses and the death of stars; the implications of black holes for time travel; and the ultimate fate of the universe and of time.
