Climate change. Nuclear devastation. Bio-hazards. The Large Hadron Collider. What do these things have in common? They all have the potential to end our world. Every great scientific creation of man is balanced by an equal amount of danger – as there’s no progress without risk. Armageddon Science is an authoritative look at the real “mad science” at work today, that recklessly puts life on Earth at risk for the pursuit of knowledge and personal gain.

This book explores the reality of the dangers that science poses to the human race, from the classic fear of nuclear destruction to the latest possibilities for annihilation. Combining the science behind those threats with an understanding of the real people responsible as well as providing an assessment of the likelihood of the end of the world, this isn’t a disaster movie, it’s Armageddon Science.
