From drinking water to DNA, from caffeine to carbon dioxide, and from Lipitor to Viagra—that is from atorvastatin to sildenafil citrate—molecules define our personalities, regulate our abilities, and dictate our feelings. Here are seven molecules you should know about.

Hey all! Help us out with a little crowd sourced interview, eh? What would you ask this author? His piece is on metaphors, and how they might be the thing that makes humans unique.
 
Loyal Nautili! We're here to ask for your help. You might have read Robert Sapolsky's piece on how metaphors might be the thing that makes us human. He argued that while language and war and tool use no longer make is different from other animals, the ability to think symbolically is still a particularly human trait.

So here's the challenge: if you could ask Sapolsky one question, what would it be? Let us know in the comments!

(Here's the piece, in case you missed it: http://nautil.us/issue/1/what-makes-you-so-special/metaphors-are-us)

This picture makes me happy. 
 
In the book Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Captain Nemo comanded the trusty Nautilus - a submarine that could take him, well, 20,000 leagues beneath the sea. Except if the Nautilus had actually tried to go that deep, it would have had to travel six time the diameter of Earth. In fact, the original title of the book was Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas, referring to the distance the trusty submarine traveled through the oceans, not how deep they went. 

Here, in a sneak preview of our first issue, artist Victo Ngai shows us what the Nautilus looks like to readers - a portal to a new world. Come back on April 29th for the whole story.

Did you enjoy last week's human/animal eyeball game? Here's part two, this time with very, very non-human eyes. Can you guess whose is whose?
