I suppose you're wondering why I've asked you all here.Well the primary reason is that I've come out with a new book on the search for life in the universe. It's called OTHER WORLDS, published by Simon & Schuster, and it explains how scientists are on the verge of answering this very ancient question. For a small preview, look at Other Worlds.But you might also be interested in some of the other things I'm involved in. For example, I've got another book in print called The Light at the Edge of the Universe; it's about the Big Bang and the quest to answer some of the most fundamental questions about the universe--how big it is, how old, what it's made of, what it really looks like. For more information about it, check out The Light at the Edge of the Universe at Amazon Books.And let's not forget my regular job at Time. I've been working at the magazine for 12 years; at last count, I'd written 26 cover stories on topics ranging from particle physics to canine genetics to emerging viruses to Biblical archaeology. If you'd like to look at some of them, check out the Time website.Finally, for a bit more detail about my background and the sorts of things that interest me, find out About the Author.
