About New Scientist:

New Scientist is a magazine for the insatiably curious. We ask the big-picture questions about life, the universe and what it means to be human. Since our publication was founded in 1956 for “all those interested in scientific discovery and its social consequences”, it has expanded to include newsletters, videos, podcasts, courses and live events in the UK, US and Australia, including New Scientist Live, the world’s greatest festival of science. Our headquarters are in London, UK, and we also have offices in the US and Australia.

At a time when misinformation is an increasingly corrosive force, there has never been a greater need for a trusted, impartial source of information about what is going on in the world – or a greater need for inspiration through exceptional ideas.

From artificial intelligence to climate change, the latest innovations in health to the mysteries of quantum physics and the human mind, New Scientist covers the ideas and innovations that matter.
