welcome to your new national geographic

YOU’LL PROBABLY FEEL the redesign of National Geographic magazine before you see it. Did you notice the heavier paper on the cover and the more luxurious touch of these pages? We hope so. They’re just two of many changes introduced in this issue, to bring you a better way to read the most compelling and visually stunning stories in the world. In its 130th year, this magazine is beloved by intellectually curious people around the globe—so we took care in updating it. Please tell us what you think of the changes; our email is editor@natgeo.com. And as ever, thank you for reading National Geographic. WHAT WE’VE CHANGED New front sections Three distinct sections in the front of the magazine are densely packed with accessible information. Proof is a story told through photography. We…

the backstory

ON HER FIRST DAY in the sprawling South Sudanese settlement of Bidibidi in Uganda, home to almost 300,000 refugees, Swedish-German photographer Nora Lorek approached a woman and asked what she’d brought from home. “Nothing,” she replied, “except for some clothes wrapped in my bedsheet.” Lorek scribbled, “bedsheet???” in her notebook. In 2011, South Sudan became the world’s newest country. Soon after, in 2013, it plunged into civil war. When a peace deal fell apart in 2016, more refugees streamed across the border into Uganda, where they’re allowed to work, farm, and go to school. For some it was their second, third, or fourth time fleeing home. In August 2017 the millionth refugee arrived, stretching the neighboring country’s hospitality. When Lorek asked around about the sheets, Bidibidi’s residents pulled out their milayas: cloths…

rid the sciences of harassers

I HAVE WATCHED THE #METOO campaign as avidly as anyone. I have gone to bed each night wondering who will be outed as a sexual harasser in the morning, whether it will be another one of my political heroes or someone we all recognize from mainstream media or Hollywood. We’ve seen many of these perpetrators lose jobs, be forced to resign, and face economic difficulty because of their abhorrent behaviors. But I have not gone to bed a single night in all these months wondering what scientist would be sacked in the morning because of his transgressions—let alone be publicly outed—because scientist-harassers rarely lose their jobs. Allow me to explain. For the past six years I’ve conducted research on sexual harassment in the sciences and worked to raise awareness of it. I’ve…

investigations of misconduct

Astronomer Geoff Marcy was allowed to resign in 2015 from the University of California, Berkeley after an investigation concluded that for roughly a decade he had subjected students to unwanted sexual contact. Paleoanthropologist Brian Richmond resigned from the American Museum of Natural History in December 2016, ending a series of investigations into sexual-misconduct claims lodged by multiple women over several years. Boston University’s investigation of geologist David Marchant concluded that he sexually harassed a graduate student during fieldwork in Antarctica; Marchant is appealing the November 2017 ruling. A California Institute of Technology investigation found that astrophysicist Christian Ott subjected two students to “unambiguous gender-based harassment.” He was suspended in fall 2015 and resigned in December 2017. WHEN ILLUSTRATOR Cristiana Couceiro looked through stock photos of scientists, the images of men looked “credible and real,”…

the living planet

THE ANTHROPOCENE. That’s the name that is starting to be used to describe the current epoch of Earth’s history. The “anthro,” of course, refers to how people have altered the planet. The dire effects of human activity—climate change and pollution, to name a couple—are well-known. But we are also learning how to make the planet a better place, as the examples to the right demonstrate. Advances in technology have enabled people to farm more efficiently, reclaim water more effectively, and replenish distressed land. In his “Anthropocene” series, photographer David Ellingsen combines relics of the human and natural worlds (above). The works reflect both hope and concern about how our species is remaking the planet. DISPATCHES FROM THE FRONT LINES OF SCIENCE AND INNOVATION 1.
