"I've been waiting since the 1980s. Now it's happening. We're getting an expanded, updated successor to the legendary Burnham's Celestial Handbook." — Alan MacRobert, Sky & Telescope, December 2015.
"We're doomed! ...or not. In The Cosmic Connection, Jeff Kanipe tackles the Earth's place in the universe, and how other denizens and aspects of the cosmos have contributed to the development of life here. Yet, they may also have led to mass extinctions in the past and may yet again in the future. The cosmos giveth and the cosmos taketh away, it seems."
Jeff is married to Alexandra Witze, a correspondent for Nature magazine. They live in Boulder, Colorado. Jeff has two daughters: Hayley Bond and Carly Kanipe. His brother, David Kanipe, teaches aerospace engineering at Texas A&M University in College Station.
