Many scenarios have been written about an asteroid disaster in modern times, but none have addressed the probability of storing humans on the Moon and other planets. Earth's Knell looks at this possibility in depth, dealing with the secrecy required to keep Earth's workers from leaving their vital jobs while the authorities prepare to save as many humans and other species as possible.
