A rogue planet is discovered on a collision course for Earth, and mass hysteria of biblical proportions will break out in the streets once knowledge of the secret and impending doom is leaked to the public. But an astronomer discovers a second planet (Alpha) accompanying the first: Bronson Beta, named after its South African discoverer, Sven Bronson.

With society disintegrating into chaos and madness, they continue their efforts and struggles to save what little of humanity they can and ... Written by William Donahue
