Sources in the Conspiracy-Pseudoscience category may publish unverifiable information that is not always supported by evidence. These sources may be untrustworthy for credible/verifiable information, therefore fact checking and further investigation is recommended on a per article basis when obtaining information from these sources. See all Conspiracy-Pseudoscience sources.
Factual Reporting: MIXED
Notes: Space.News (SN) is a site focusing primarily on space and space exploration. As such, SN is a mixed bag of hard science, speculation, and outright conspiracy. While the hard science articles are generally well-sourced and factual, they are in the minority on Space.News. The remainder of the stories either links to other conspiracy sites or related stories on SN itself.
1. The article regarding the reanimation of frozen zebrafish embryos is a fairly straightforward look at research into cryogenics.
2. The story “debunking” the moon landings, however, is a pure conspiracy. Relying on “Detailed Photographic Analysis” the story is essentially a reworking of several conspiracies regarding the landings.
Although SN does offer some hard science content, the predominance of poorly sourced conspiracy and pseudoscience stories earns them a Conspiracy / Pseudoscience rating. (D. Kelley 08/17/17)
