About Us

Welcome to Nautilus. Like Captain Nemo we’re embarked on a voyage into the wonders of the universe. Our stories take you into the depths of science and spotlight its ripples in our lives and cultures. We believe any subject in science, no matter how complex, can be explained with clarity and vitality. We venture into the fields of anthropology, geology, and paleontology. We infiltrate the labs of astronomy, genetics, and physics. When science ventures into the arts, we follow. There’s a story in everything and we follow the story wherever it leads us. Our writers—journalists and scientists—educate and enlighten and entertain. Our illustrators put your imaginations into flight. Science is an amazing journey. We’re glad to have you aboard.
