For 50 years, Smithsonian magazine has brought the Institution’s deep knowledge, curiosity, and wonder into the homes of readers across the nation. The magazine was launched in the spring of 1970—as was the first Earth Day—and from the start it has been the trusted go-to source on the natural world and environmental issues.

Celebrate Smithsonian magazine’s anniversary by revisiting some of its first articles about how we understand planet Earth and learn about the progress we’ve made since then. Hear from the experts who brought these stories to life, including:

Smithsonian senior editor Jennie Rothenberg Gritz will host and moderate the evening.
