Quanta magazine

Quanta magazine illuminates basic science + math research. We’re committed to in-depth, accurate journalism that serves the public interest. Each article braids the complexities of science with the malleable art of story-telling — and is meticulously reported, edited, and fact-checked. Launched and funded by the Simons Foundation, Quanta is editorially independent.

The magazine explores developments in:

  • math
  • physics
  • computer science
  • life sciences

The best traditional news organizations provide excellent reporting on applied areas of science, such as: health, medicine, tech, engineering, and environment. We strive to complement + augment existing media coverage.

Quanta is a non-profit foundation funded publication — all resources go toward producing responsible, freely accessible journalism. Our editorial independence ensures impartial science writing. We want everyone to keep reading. We invite you to explore our pages, and we look forward to your comments.
