Author Interview – Asteroid, Boom, Crater, Doom

Way to Go Wednesday 4 

Congratulations Kevin Kurtz on your newly released book titled INTO THE CRATER OF DOOM!

This is Kevin’s 14th book and it is fascinating. Who isn’t curious about how dinosaurs became extinct? Kevin explains what inspired him to write this book. He even had the opportunity to go on an expedition with scientists to investigate the enormous underwater crater. And he shares some research surprises. 

Take a look and listen to details about the asteroid that went boom, creating a crater and causing doom!
