Had asteroid 1996 JA1 continued on its projected course, its impact with the Earth would have devastated the surface of the planet with an explosive release of energy five times more powerful than the sum of the world's nuclear arsenal. This asteroid, the size of a football stadium, was only detected five days before the date of impact. No one was prepared, and nothing could be done to prevent it. The world's powers watched the asteroid's approach, unable to prevent the impending catastrophe. At the last moment, the trajectory of a 1996 JA1 carried it away from our planet with only hours to spare. We were lucky... this time.

Austen Atkinson's investigation into the impact phenomenon has led to fascinating revelations, which include the importance of "Deathrock' collisions in the history of humankind, and the uncovering of a trail of evidence that exposes an international conspiracy to conceal the danger of impacts on the Earth and its people.
