This site is the online version of our print magazine. We’ve taken the articles written and published in our magazine and placed them online.

The magazine is all about exclusive content you won’t find anywhere else. Each issue includes several feature stories, plus regular columns by Jeff Foust, Peter de Selding and Mike Gruss. You also get in-depth interviews, guest columns from head honchos, and the thoughtful commentaries that have been SpaceNews’ stock in trade for 25 years.

We publish 26 times a year.

SpaceNews.com is free. Why isn’t SpaceNewsMag.com?
SpaceNews.com has seen a dramatic growth in monthly visitors since we took down the paywall in 2013 and turned to paid ads and other forms of sponsored content to keep the website free to use.

I already pay for the print edition of the magazine. Why do I have to pay to read the magazine online?

SpaceNewsMag.com gives you a new option: a great reading experience on every device with full access to every article we publish.

How often is SpaceNewsMag.com updated?
The website is updated in conjunction with the print edition, which is published every other Monday.

Is there an email newsletter that will keep me posted when new content is added to the site?
Not quite yet, but we’re working on it.
