He followed his dream of becoming a journalist. In 1944, his first article appeared in the Washington Post based on his first book, Dark Horse, about President James Polk. Several months later, in March 1945, he moved to Washington, D.C. to cover Congress and the White House. His columns were nationally distributed by the United Feature Syndicate in New York. During his career, he was a frequent panelist on NBC's Meet the Press. Van der Linden interviewed every president, from Harry S. Truman to George H. W. Bush, and he was a regular participant in White House press conferences. He traveled the world covering presidents and vice presidents, including former president Richard Nixon's historic trip to the Soviet Union in 1972. Van der Linden's avocation was American history. His 1962 book, The Turning Point, was a well-received study of Thomas Jefferson's battle for the presidency. After retiring from daily journalism in 1992, he rekindled his interest in the Civil War, publishing numerous articles and books, including Lincoln: The Road to War, in 1998, and The Dark Intrigue: A True Story of a Civil War Conspiracy, in 2007.

Ben Is Dead was a Los Angeles-based zine published from 1988 through 1999. Its creator, Deborah "Darby" Romeo, got its name from a dream she had about her husband Ben, a Frenchman she divorced not long into the magazine's run. Romeo would later write that during the magazine's early days Ben found the title amusing, and would introduce himself to people as "Ben, from Ben is Dead." Today Ben Is Dead is perhaps best known for the three-part series of "Retro" issues, in which dozens of writers looked back at the trends and fads of their childhoods with a mix of nostalgia and horror. These issues were compiled into the sprawling book, Retro Hell: Life in the '70s and '80s, From Afros to Zotz. In 1996, Romeo established the University of California, Los Angeles' "Darby Romeo Collection of Zines," a permanent archive currently housed in UCLA's Arts Library Special Collections. Many of Ben is Dead's writers have continued their writing careers (Vaginal Davis writes for LA Weekly, Lisa Crystal Carver and Mikki Halpin have each written several books) including Romeo, who has penned articles for LA Weekly, Alternative Press, Vanity Fair, the Chicago Tribune and The Village Voice.

Named after astronomer Johannes Kepler, the spacecraft was launched into an Earth-trailing heliocentric orbit. The principal investigator was William J. Borucki. After nine and a half years of operation, the telescope's reaction control system fuel was depleted, and NASA announced its retirement on October 30, 2018. Designed to survey a portion of Earth's region of the Milky Way to discover Earth-size exoplanets in or near habitable zones and estimate how many of the billions of stars in the Milky Way have such planets, Kepler's sole scientific instrument is a photometer that continually monitored the brightness of approximately 150,000 main sequence stars in a fixed field of view. These data were transmitted to Earth, then analyzed to detect periodic dimming caused by exoplanets that cross in front of their host star. Only planets whose orbits are seen edge-on from Earth could be detected. Kepler observed 530,506 stars and detected 2,778 confirmed planets as of June 16, 2023.
