Will Civilisation Survive the Twenty-first Century?: Will the Human Race Survive the Twenty-first Century?
World authority on astrophysics, Sir Martin Rees, takes us on a journey through all the things which could wipe out mankind in the near future. From asteroids to disease to scientific discoveries gone wrong (from nanobots to the large Hadron collider) these are scenarios from disaster movies, analysed with a serious scientific eye. Some of these things definitely won't happen, some genuinely might – this is one book you won't be able to put down and which you'll never forget.
