When Worlds Collide – NaBloPoMo 2010

oh noes!

a rogue planet is heading towards Earth!

whatever shall we do?

 

When Worlds Collide by Philip Wylie and Edwin Balmer

 

luckily (f0r some) the rogue planet Alpha is traveling with a smaller rogue planet, Beta; and there is a chance that when Alpha collides with and pulverizes Earth, Beta may stabilize into a solar orbit near the former Earth.

the game is on:  spaceships must be built, and passenger lists determined – very few Earthlings will get passage, what about the rest? and will the would-be-colonists be able to leave Earth before the Collision?

When Worlds Collide was written in 1933 and it has been a major influence in sci-fi writing, in comic books, in movies, to this day.
