We envision a world where citizens can freely explore science for themselves.
Our mission is to give knowledge-seekers welcoming and transparent explanations of the scientific method in action.
What We Do
We are powered by the motivation and passion of volunteers, and supported by the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization Blue Marble Space.
We simply tell you about what the scientists did, how they did it, and the results they got. We always link to the original source at the bottom of every article. Our writers are scientists, professionals, and graduate students who are experienced in the subjects they write about.
We do not and never will rely on advertising revenue. Our content will always be free for you. We make a conscious effort to minimize ideological bias and avoid putting our own interpretations of the science into the article. This is so you can make up your own mind about what you are reading. Our articles are ideal for teachers, students, and lifelong learners. Learn even more about how to help keep us ad-free, and why we do what we do here.
