A Reader-Powered Scrapbook of Nautilus’ First Year in Print

It’s hard to believe it’s been a whole year since the launch of Nautilus. Thankfully, our readers and staff have kept a kind of scrapbook of memories from this year. So, to celebrate our first birthday, here we present some of the ways people have captured their moments with the magazine so far.  If you want to get in on the memory-making, just send us your own picture of you and the magazine. You can email it to us at, tag us on Facebook, or send us a Tweet. 

All the way back before we had a quarterly magazine, we held a launch party with a short preview of Nautilus.

@NautilusMag Thanks for inviting me to the launch party. Great to be with so many great writers and editors.

Our first issue included pieces on what makes humans so special (or not), the uncertainty surrounding us all, and the ways things move.

If you weren’;t sure what you’;d be getting out of a print Nautilus, this chapter is for you.

And our third, most recent issue, explored what we throw away, where we make our homes, and how we measure time.
