Nautilus is a different kind of science magazine. It delivers deep, undiluted, narrative storytelling to bring science into the largest and most important conversations today. It challenges the reader to consider the connecting tissue that runs through the sciences and connects them to philosophy, culture, and art. Each issue combines the sciences, culture, and philosophy into a single story told by the world’s leading thinkers and writers. Readers will find essays, investigative reports, and blogs, as well as fiction. They can explore games, videos, and graphic stories. Each month the editors of Nautilus choose a single theme and examine it from multiple perspectives. A new chapter in the theme comes out every Thursday. The Nautilusblog, “Facts So Romantic,” and newsfeed, “Three Sentence Science,” both publish daily. Seven feature articles are free to read each month.
