Cover looks like meteorites flying through space.

Impact: How Rocks from Space Led to Life, Culture, and Donkey Kong

by Greg Brennecka Author

We can thank meteorites not just for how cool they look but also for things like the Solar System, dinosaurs, and Donkey Kong. These space rocks defined our past, built our present, and will impact our future. Without them, the Earth would still be a lifeless, cold rock. Not only did they bring life and minerals to this planet, they conveniently knocked off dinosaurs, paving the way for us humans (uh, you are a human, right?) to thrive. Impact also shows how meteorites have started wars, terrified countless generations, and even inspired religions.
