In the late 30th Century, a radioactive asteroid struck Baskh's moon, shattering both. The resulting fallout covered Baskh, and tragically proved fatal to the Baskhian children though it spared the adults. One of Baskh's leading chemists discovered the fallout would only harm Baskhian children, not children of other worlds.
