COSMOS covers the ‘science of everything’ - from human biology and medicine, the environment, archaeology, space and astronomy, to information technology, society and social research.

The first issue of COSMOS goes on sale June 22 for $8.95, and an outstanding pre-launch subscription deal - offering a 20% discount, a free BBC DVD plus a free 3-month gift subscription - has just opened to the public.
