Science That Tells a Story? Nautilus Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way.

While facts and figures have their place, we simply can’t talk about life as we know it without talking about science more holistically. It’s everywhere, from the food we eat to the films we appreciate.

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.

Each issue delves into a timely topic exploring it from unique and often provocative angles.

You Have Questions. We Like That.

Nautilus stories are written by physicists, artists, psychologists, and biologists, to name a few, and we encourage each to write freely and without institutional governors.

Our readers experience completely unique content addressing the greatest scientific questions of our time. Our narratives go beyond facts and figures to bring science to life through art, food, music, architecture, and more. We make science accessible and applicable to our everyday lives.

Each month, we choose a single theme and examine it from multiple perspectives. A new chapter in the theme comes out every Thursday. Our blog Facts So Romantic publishes daily.

Readers can manage their subscription preferences through their personal account page, including upgrades, changes to contact information, and cancellations. Additionally, customer service can be reached at for help at any time.

Nautilus works in collaboration with leading research institutions and foundations focused on scientific exploration and discovery, including the Bertarelli Foundation, American Geosciences Institute, Poetry in America, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, and the Science Philanthropy Alliance.

We sell EPUBS and offer them as downloads to our Prime members. EPUBS can be converted to MOBI & Kindle using the free service EPUB Converter.
