“Science,” Isaac Asimov once wrote, “gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.” Asimov’s words have never been more true than in our time.
ORBITER magazine, a new online home for the intellectually curious, launched this June, thanks to generous support from the John Templeton Foundation. Explore the site today for a first look.
Our charge at ORBITER is to humbly pursue life’s Big Questions, illuminating the human condition and our place in the universe. Inviting readers to ponder the science of meaning and the meaning of science, this new, multi-platform publication will highlight scientific research on ideas at the frontiers of knowledge and understanding—from cosmology to compassion and philosophy to photons
Like you, we believe that conversations about science, meaning, and virtue are best approached with humility, balance, and accuracy. By providing reliable and accessible stories for people from all walks of life, ORBITER aims to better inform the public about work happening at the frontiers of scientific inquiry.
Join us in embracing the new, the abstract, and the world unseen… Welcome to ORBITER.
