The concept of Earth being struck by a large body from space has been a popular plot in several recent films. This 1932 volume, however, was possibly the first to present that scenario. Here, humankind races to complete a spacecraft--an airborne ark--that will carry an assortment of people to begin the population over again as a rogue planet on a collision course with Earth speeds toward a cataclysmic end.
