What is Nautilus?
Nautilus is a different kind of science magazine. It delivers deep, undiluted, narrative storytelling to bring science into the largest and most important conversations we are having today. It challenges the reader to consider the connecting tissue that runs through the sciences and connects them to philosophy, culture and art.
How often do you publish?
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.
Have you won any awards?
We are the first magazine ever to win two National Magazine Awards in our first year. We’ve also won the Webby for best science website, and more than a dozen other awards for content and art.
Is it free to read?
The first 7 feature articles you read every month are free. Reading more than 7 in a month is restricted to Nautilus Prime members. Print subscriptions include Prime membership for free. Our blog, Facts So Romantic, and our news feed, Three Sentence Science, are completely free.
I’m a Prime member, how do I sign in?

What if I buy Prime, and then decide I want a print subscription?
