Seven Signs of the Apocalypse on The History Channel
I'll be on TV tonight and all this week: The History Channel is airing a show called "Seven Signs of the Apocalypse" at 21:00 Eastern (US) time (but check your local listings). I did what I call a "stand-up interview" for this show: me standing in front of some interesting background while I talk astronomy. In this case, it was asteroid impacts and gamma-ray bursts, two of my fave death-from-the-skies scenarios.

I've seen some of the graphics from the show, and they are spectacular. It should be pretty cool, even if couched in an "End Times" framework.
