"Lisa's breezy narrative style invites you to experience with her the challenges and joys of being a scientist on the frontier of discovery." —Neil deGrasse Tyson, Astrophysicist, American Museum of Natural History "Horizon-expanding... [Kaltenegger] has something of Sagan’s knack for eliciting wonder." —The Times Riveting and timely, a look at the research that is transforming our understanding of the cosmos in the quest to discover whether we are alone. For thousands of years, humans have wondered whether we're alone in the cosmos. Now, for the first time, we have the technology to investigate. But once you look for life elsewhere, you realize it is not so simple. How do you find it over cosmic distances? What actually is life? As founding director of Cornell University's Carl Sagan Institute, astrophysicist Lisa Kaltenegger has built a team of tenacious scientists from many disciplines to create a specialized toolkit to find life on faraway worlds. In Alien Earths, she demonstrates how we can use our homeworld as a Rosetta Stone, creatively analyzing Earth's history and its astonishing biosphere to inform this search. With infectious enthusiasm, she takes us on an eye-opening journey to the most unusual exoplanets that have shaken our worldview - planets covered in oceans of lava, lonely wanderers lost in space, and others with more than one sun in their sky! And the best contenders for Alien Earths. We also see the imagined worlds of science fiction and how close they come to reality. With the James Webb Space Telescope and Dr. Kaltenegger’s pioneering work, she shows that we live in an incredible new epoch of exploration. As our witty and knowledgeable tour guide, Dr. Kaltenegger shows how we discover not merely new continents, like the explorers of old, but whole new worlds circling other stars and how we could spot life there. Worlds from where aliens may even be gazing back at us. What if we're not alone?

Long ago in an ancient land, a group of nomadic people, without a land to call their own, wished to gain passage through a land of bellicose nations known throughout history as the Moabites and Amorites. To the very unfortunate peoples who happened upon the borders of these barbaric nations, they would ultimately be cut off in battles waged against them, until one dreadful day. Emissaries were dispatched in the hopes of obtaining permission to pass through their land, but instead war broke out and brought an end to those antagonistic nations. The battle was fought on the East Side of the Amon River, in what is now the land of Jordan. Both the Moabites and the Amorites were no match for the nomads, who had endured living in the wilderness and surrounding mountains for almost half-century. Those nomadic people also had possession of a very powerful book, in which all of their victories were recorded. The year in which the battle against the Moabites and Amorites was fought is recorded as 1290 BCE. It is said that the book was given to them from on high, and during battles their leader would simply hold the book up toward heaven, and celestial beings would destroy their enemies. It then became known throughout all the surrounding lands and nations that their God was a powerful being who fought on their behalf. As centuries passed, the use of the book became extinct, and as a result, a high priest set out to hide the book in various parts of the world, so that no one person or nation could harness its power to be used against humanity. In the event that the book was ever needed, the high priest left clues and codes that, once deciphered, would lead to the various hiding places of each part of the book. The world is now facing an enemy that has not been seen since times of old--an enemy far more sinister than can be imagined by the human mind. Now an epic world battle is nearing, and without the book, all will be lost. This story starts simply. It begins with the search for: The Book of the Wars of God
