Issue 25: Waves

We like to see our world as relatively stable. But waves are everywhere, rising and falling all around us. Some we can detect with our ears and our eyes; most require a scientific lens to be truly appreciated.

As we wave hello again, we'll take you on a rollercoaster through the snapping pulses of brainwaves, sudden troughs in self-esteem, the rising damage from storm surge and so much more.

We need your help!

Publishing a regular magazine demands a great deal of time and effort: a feature article that takes you 15 minutes to read might take dozens of hours of labour, including research, interviews, writing, subediting, and the creation of original artwork. 

To keep publishing Lateral, we need your help to pay overhead costs for the magazine. This will help us transition to our next phase as a not-for-profit charity. 

So if you're a regular Lateral reader or someone who wants to ensure we keep delivering great stories about science, please donate to our crowdfunding campaign. Every bit counts. If you're light on cash, but still want to help us out, please share our campaign with your networks — it will make a world of difference.
