The Possibility of Life
Science, imagination, and our quest for kinship in the cosmos.
Jaime Green

When I read this excerpt in The Atlantic I knew I had to read this book. It was wonderful. Part science, part philosophy, part love-letter to humanity. As an added bonus Green discusses several science fiction books I’ve never read and that went straight on my list. But what I liked best was that the author clearly loves this stuff, and it shows on every page.

The stars cannot be counted, but each one can be named.
