By: Peter Ward and Donald Brownlee
240 pages, 15 b/w illus
The authors, a geologist and an astronomer, tell an awe-inspiring story of the second half of the Earth's life. The process of planetary evolution will essentially reverse itself; life as we know it will subside until only the simplest forms remain. The oceans will evaporate, and as the sun slowly expands, Earth itself will eventually meet a fiery end.
`[Ward & Brownlee] combine storytelling power with extreme scientific care, and their narrative is as transfixing as any of HG Wells' fantasies' Oliver Sachs
