When scientists discover that a large, previously unknown asteroid is on a collision course for Earth they immediately form a plan to intercept it and try to break it apart before it devastates the planet.
The mission is a long shot but unless they try something it’s impact will surely kill millions by triggering super-tsunamis and mega-earthquakes on a massive scale. And weather disruptions afterwards may doom even more tens of thousands. Running may not be an option but getting farther inland from any coast could help your odds. This is the story of an ordinary family trying to survive an extraordinary world-changing event.
