The picture is captivating: a young girl stands on a rock formation, the Mongolian mountain skyline providing a dramatic backdrop while a massive golden eagle perches on her outstretched arm. Photographed by Asher Svidensky, this picture of thirteen-year-old Aisholpan Nurgaiv went viral in 2014 and inspired The Eagle Huntress, a documentary which chronicles Aisholpan’s struggle…

“Dark Matter” by Blake Crouch — Graham Piro Multiverse theories and quantum physics typically make for dry, scholarly writing. In the hands of Blake Crouch, however, these topics make for gripping fiction.
