That’s why each issue of Nautilus challenges you to discover new, surprising perspectives on how science interacts with all aspects of life—medicine and health, of course—but also politics, art, food, work, technology, and sports.

As an example, consider...

The Story Of Nautilus

Nautilus believes the methodology of science remains one of the great advances of humankind — and that its stories, properly told, are epic poems in progress, and deserve to stand alongside the great stories of history.

We were founded in 2013 by John Steele as a non-profit and published with institutional philanthropic financial support from the John Templeton Foundation and several other science institutions and philanthropies.

In 2019, Nautilus was acquired by an ownership group of super-fans dedicated to continuing the mission of expanding scientific inquiry and its connection to the human spirit.
