I would like to subscribe to a general science periodical (emphasis on physics would not go amiss) other than Scientific American that would explain new scientific discoveries and ideas in popular terms. A hard copy magazine best but digital okay too. Please, no defense of Scientific American. I'm sure they have some good articles. I'm just looking for a change. Thank you for your recommendations.
