CONSPIRACY-PSEUDOSCIENCE

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.

Examples:

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)
