What is Sciworthy?

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that the information we get online is changing. In the era of fake news and click-bait, reading things online gets exhausting. You may hear yourself saying, “Won’t somebody just give it to me straight? Is that so hard?”

Well, we hear you loud and clear and have made it our mission to at least keep our little corner of the internet a good place to stay informed.

About Us

Sciworthy is powered by the motivation and passion of volunteers, and is supported by the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization Blue Marble Space. We simply tell you about what scientists do, why they did it, and the results they got. We always link to the original source at the bottom of every article. Our writers are trained scientists, not journalists. We don’t have an axe to grind.

We are not beholden to any advertisers, search-engine optimized content creators, political parties, robots, zombies, or dark forces. 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. Of course, we aren’t perfect, but our writers and editors are trained to keep an eye out for these common human errors.
