Summary In this sweeping tour of the cosmos and our place in it, acclaimed science writer Jeff Kanipe shows the many ways we are connected to the vast universe we inhabit. Tracing the whole natural history of how events in the near and far universe have influenced life on Earth today, and how they might influence life in the future, Kanipe covers the gamut of known and theorized events, not only in a historical context but in a future context as well. As the title suggests, Kanipe shows how these events are all interconnected
