About Discover Earth

We're a science media company who aims to bring the wonder and awe of the universe into your day.

Mostly this is through the Big Ideas Network, and our online community app. Check them out below!

We also have an online store, and are starting to work with videos, live streams, and podcasts.

The Big Ideas Network

Our understanding of the universe is based upon a number of interlinked ideas, built over centuries by humanity's greatest minds. As Isaac Newton said, "If I have seen further it is only by standing on the shoulders of giants." The Big Ideas Network presents these ideas concisely, with memorable stories.

There is also an email subscription available, which makes these ideas more digestible by sending out a few theories per week. A sample of ideas includes:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • The origin of each element
  • The fundamental forces of the universe
  • What makes oxygen, hydrogen, and water special

Discover Earth Community

We believe that wonder and the story of the universe should scale far beyond us at Discover Earth. We've created an online community and app where anyone can participate in the wonder of our world, by posting anything from pictures to jaw-dropping facts and latest news.

A sample of groups in the community includes:

  • Great Reads
  • Amazing Apps
  • Unforgettable Locations
  • Gear and Kit
