It can rain human-sized diamonds on the planets Uranus and Neptune, or so I read in the cover article of the current issue of Nautilus, a science magazine that we now subscribe to and is available to you through Flipster. Nautilus bills itself as “a different kind of science magazine… science, philosophy, and culture are woven together into single narratives that you will find both familiar, and surprising.” It is among the new titles we now get through Flipster, along with Parents, Mindfulness, The Sun, Car & Driver, and Guitar Player. These are in addition to the titles we already subscribed to, which include The New Yorker, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Sports Illustrated, Newsweek, Kiplinger’s, Mother Jones, Dwell, and Food Network Magazine, and others. Ask any of us about our digital subscriptions anytime.
This just in: Guitarist Pat Martino has died at age 77. There was an article about him and his recovery from brain surgery in a 2015 issue of Nautilus. You cannot read it through Flipster, but it is available to read in your browser if you are interested.
