Bad Universe with Phil Plait starts on TDC tonight!
We're talking asteroid and comet impacts, and Plait will examine how to avoid an extinction-level event on Earth in his brand new Discovery Channel show: Bad Universe.
In this special Discovery News Wide Angle, we'll take you on a trip to where potentially hazardous space rocks live, how frequent they hit us and what can be done to safeguard the planet (but we'll leave the pyrotechnics to Phil).
