We're starting a mini series on KYW Newsradio In Depth called Doomsday Scenarios, where we ask very smart people if this, that, or the other thing could destroy life as we know it.

How big would something have to be to do catastrophic damage to the planet? Could we actually do anything to prevent this? Our guest is Dr. Eric Jensen, Professor of astronomy at Swarthmore College and friend of the podcast.
