Inverse is the coolest place to get smarter. We explore the science of anything, innovations that shape tomorrow, and ideas that stretch our minds. Our goal is to motivate the next generation to build a better world.
Our science team covers reality from a scientific perspective. We report on the latest essential academic research. We ask tough-to-answer questions about sex, neuroscience, health & wellness, archaeology, chemistry, physics, and more. We tell stories in a way that anyone can follow, and we provide geeky insights about pop culture, news, and everyday life. Our approach is defined by scientific rigor and sense of humor.
Our innovation team covers the projects that will shape tomorrow. We offer interviews and analysis on breakthroughs in A.I., renewable energy, autonomous cars, aerospace, finance, cities, biohacking, and emerging tech that’s changing lives. We seek to understand how innovations work, why they matter, and what’s next.
Our entertainment team explores fictional universes. We believe that sci-fi, fantasy, and other creative works help us understand ourselves, and enthusiastically geeky analysis is the best way to reach these insights. We also spotlight the creators and fans who bring these worlds to life. Our obsessions include Star Wars, Marvel, DC, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Rick & Morty, Star Trek, video games, virtual reality, and more.
Our culture team examines how the world is changing. We report on ideas and trends that are spreading around the world, and report on how the future of society will be shaped by drops and tidal waves. Our coverage includes politics, internet culture, design, travel, education, and more.
Inverse takes a scientific approach to analyzing culture and a cultural approach to talking about science. Since our launch in August 2015, we’ve endeavored to analyze the world thoroughly — if not consistently. Our aim is to better understand tomorrow by examining today.
