It’s a time like none other for us for Nautilus, as it is for every publication. What can we do to help you understand what’s happening to us? That’s the question that drives every article we’ve done and are planning to do on the coronavirus pandemic. 

Our mission in the throes of the outbreak takes you from the microscopic world of the molecules that are doing so much harm to the theories of evolution and ecology that explain why that should be. Comprehending nature can provide relief amid the chaos, which will be no consolation to those suffering in hospitals. But comprehension can help us see how and why this crisis will end. I am referring to nature’s cycles as much as the science and scientists, including medical workers, leading the rescue, clearing the path to safety. Right now, science is the hero, and we are committed, as ever, to shine our spotlight on it.
