AUSTRALIA: THE TIME MACHINE ... OUR ROCK OF AGES & THE EXTRAORDINARY STORY THAT CAN HELP OUR FUTURE
At a time when humans are impacting the planet like nothing else before (and quite possibly driving our own demise), scientists are bringing together the full story of how our planet has been shaped into the world we know today.   From the extremes of ‘Snowball Earth’ to the dramatic jolts of asteroid strikes, a special report explains how we can learn from what the planet has been through and survived. In the latest issue of Australia’s leading science publication COSMOS, journalist Lauren Fuge takes us on an epic journey, explaining the different types of ‘worlds’ our planet has been at various times, all accessible and understandable by reading the rock of ages found here in Australia.
