The New Science of Planet Hunting in the Cosmos
by Lisa Kaltenegger
St. Martin’s Press, April 2024

For thousands of years, humans have wondered whether we are alone in the cosmos. Now, for the first time, we have the technology to investigate. The question should have an obvious answer: yes or no. But once you try to find life elsewhere, you realize it is not so simple. What is life, actually? How do you find it over cosmic distances? And where are we the aliens? As director of the Carl Sagan Institute at Cornell University, astronomer Lisa Kaltenegger works with teams of tenacious scientists building the uniquely specialized tool kit to find life on alien worlds. In Alien Earths, she provides an insider’s view of what scientists are learning from Earth’s history and its astonishing biosphere. With an infectious enthusiasm, she takes us on an eye-opening journey to a dozen of the most unusual exoplanets that have shaken our worldview—planets covered in oceans of lava, lonely wanderers lost in space, and planets with more than one sun in the sky! And she dives into the worlds of science fiction, using these imagined other worlds to entertainingly describe how close they come to reality. With the James Webb Space Telescope, other smaller telescopes, and the pioneering work that Dr. Kaltenegger is carrying out in her labs, we live in an incredible epoch of exploration.

Lisa Kaltenegger is the Director of the Carl Sagan Institute to Search for Life in the Cosmos at Cornell and Associate Professor in Astronomy. She is a pioneer and world-leading expert in modeling potential habitable worlds and their detectable spectral fingerprint. Kaltenegger serves on the National Science Foundation’s Astronomy and Astrophysics Advisory Committee (AAAC), and on NASA senior review of operating missions. She is a Science Team Member of NASA’s TESS Mission as well as the NIRISS instrument on James Webb Space Telescope.

Dr. Judith Joseph explores one of the most under researched mental health crises of our time, revealing how to break from from High Functioning Depression (HFD) and reclaim the joy in our lives.

The New Face of Depression–and How to Reclaim Our Joy

Many of us have experienced periods in our lives when something felt “off”: when we struggled to find joy in happy moments, felt pessimistic about the future, and took little pleasure in things we used to enjoy. On the surface, everything might have seemed fine – we were motivated and productive at work, pulling our weight at home, and conducting a normal social life – but behind that façade we were barely surviving, and certainly not thriving.

High-Functioning Depression impacts the lives of millions, yet has been under-researched, overlooked, and completely misunderstood. Because it doesn’t conform to the image that comes to mind when we think of depression – someone who is deeply sad and listless and finds it hard to get out of bed in the morning – people with HFD often have no idea why they are suffering, or what to do about it. Until now.

As the founder and chief investigator at Manhattan Behavioral Medicine, New York City’s premier clinical research site, a clinical assistant professor at NYU Langone Medical Center, chairwoman of the Women in Medicine Board at Columbia University’s Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, and “social media’s favorite psychiatrist,” Dr. Judith Joseph is poised to become THE expert voice on this urgent and unexplored topic. In GOLDEN, she draws on original research, client stories, and personal experience with HFD to transform the way we see this condition, and provide the awareness, validation, and accessible, research-backed advice (in the form of her “Five V’s Framework) we need to break the cycle.

Judith Joseph, MD, MBA, is a board-certified child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist and researcher who specializes in mental health and trauma. She is the founder of and chief investigator at Manhattan Behavioral Medicine, New York City’s premier clinical research site. Passionate about teaching and creating an impact, Dr. Judith serves as a clinical assistant professor in child and adolescent psychiatry at NYU Langone Medical Center in Manhattan. She is also chairwoman of the Women in Medicine Board at Columbia University’s Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons. She holds an undergraduate degree from Duke as well as a medical doctorate and master’s in business administration from Columbia.
