Where Science Meets Meaning

“Science,” Isaac Asimov once wrote, “gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.” Asimov’s words have never been more true than in our time.

At ORBITER Magazine, we invite you to ponder the science of meaning, and the meaning of science. We are a multi-platform network for publishing and promoting ideas at the frontiers of human knowledge and understanding. We connect audiences with content that matters. We highlight scientific research on the big questions from cosmology to compassion, and from philosophy to photons.

The mission of ORBITER Magazine is threefold:

To spread information about new and emerging discoveries that advance scientific knowledge and bear on questions of value, meaning, or morality.

To provide resources on a select group of topics so that students, teachers, journalists, policymakers, and people from all walks of life can find an accessible and reliable library of information matters of concern to us all.

To elevate and enrich the public conversation about science, meaning, and morality. Orbiter seeks to bring accuracy, balance, and humility to a conversation about ideas that are often mischaracterized and misunderstood.
