Why so many ads?

After reading this one article "40 Years After Landing: Why Is It So Hard to Go Back?", I'm disappointed in the people who made this site. They placed too many ads everywhere, it's hard to keep focus on the writing itself. They could have done better. They haven't even updated the article for the past 10 years. Why is that? Is this site trustworthy?

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Kids interested in the search for alien life, skywatching, and space exploration will like knowing what is happening in space today. News is organized by recent events and by topic so kids can quickly access what they're interested in. Parents will appreciate that all information is up to date and from reliable sources. However, kids who aren't already interested in space may have a hard time wading through the detailed information; although the site is well organized and contains solid information, it's not all that kid-friendly.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
