Nothing captures the imagination more than the prospect of apocalyptic disaster. In this talk we will explore several astronomical events, including cosmic rays, solar flares and impacting asteroids and try to assess how the severity and frequency of such events could impact the survival of humans and life in general on our planet. To put the dangers in context comparisons will be made to potential terrestrial catastrophes.
