Asteroid Impact Over Russia:
SDE Proposal Grips the World
by Benjamin Deniston

All of which means, in fact, that I have searched, with some modest degree of a relatively unique success, for access to the real, future causes and their outcomes for a future history, rather than that of most of those who have been considered, as by their own very selves, to be 'merely historians of a past experience.'
