Dear Readers,

Welcome to the new home of Quanta Magazine. We have completely re-engineered and redesigned the site to better serve you and the journalism you trust us to produce.

This is an important time in the magazine’s development. Since we began publishing in late 2012, taking on the name Quanta in the summer of 2013, we’ve worked hard to bring you the very best coverage of mathematics and basic science news. Over the years, thanks to you, our audience has multiplied. We have expanded into new forms of journalism such as columns, blog posts, videos, graphics, puzzles and podcasts. While still anchored by our core news features, Quanta has grown more visual and more interactive. So today we unveil a completely updated site, a new logo and a new branding schema that represent the magazine we’ve become.

Our goal was to create a clean, open, delightful space for nourishing (and indulging) your intellect. Working with the imaginative designers at Dogstudio and the nimble developers at Barrel, we made the site more beautiful and easier to navigate, and we enhanced our search, commenting and social sharing tools. A new “Read Later” feature lets you curate a personal list of articles that you can access at any time from any device. It is now easier than ever to contact us. And our new logo captures the essence of Quanta and our ambition to “illuminate science.”

While we are thrilled to introduce these changes, one thing remains constant: our commitment to journalistic excellence. You can continue to expect the same depth, accuracy and storytelling every time you visit. We hope our work will continue to reward readers who, like us, want to know more than our own small worlds, and more than just a headline.

Thank you for trusting QuantaMagazine.org as your source for science and math news. We invite you to test-drive our new site and look forward to your comments.
