About the Author

My name is Cody Knipfer. I am currently a Senior at McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland, and am majoring in international relations. I have a wide array of interests, though I am particularly fascinated and fixated on topics of astronomy, science, international relations, and political philosophy. I hope to spend my life learning more and fostering personal views about these subjects of interest, as well as discovering new things on which I can focus.
