Poynter: Scientific American, the oldest U.S. magazine, hits another milestone as the appetite for science news heats up

Poynter: Scientific American, the oldest U.S. magazine, hits another milestone as the appetite for science news heats up. “While the nation’s news cycle was focused last week on Hurricane Laura, the Republican National Convention and protests over another painful police shooting, the country’s oldest continuously published magazine celebrated its 175th birthday. Not all that quietly, either. Scientific American’s special anniversary issue dropped Friday. It has two themes — articles of note from that very long lifespan woven into features on the biggest things we have learned about science and how we learned them over the last 175 years.”
