Newsflash: The end is coming, but we'll get over it. So says local science journalist Annalee Newitz in her new book, "Scatter, Adapt, and Remember." Humans, Newitz writes, have avoided extinction time and time again, and our chances for survival in the face of catastrophe are better than ever. Newitz, the editor of the science fiction blog, "io9," joins us in studio to discuss the book.
