I found this page: http://phys.org/space-news/ . It seems to me pretty good page with interesting news and so on and I like that it is free. But I noticed in comments people arguing about the validity of the information and so on. Are they just "trolls" or is this page really bad source of information, if that is so, how much can I trust it? Thanks in advance!

    $\begingroup$ I checked out a couple of stories - it looks ok as a source of news. Good that it publishes abstracts and gives links to actual peer-reviewed papers. $\endgroup$ – ProfRob Feb 17 '16 at 0:51

I've been reading phys.org for years. It's right up there with physics.aps and physicsworld.

All good sources that provide decent refs. Comments are often where people who like to argue, argue. Sometimes they are useful, often not.

Because of the .org, you probably can trust it, because it's an organization. Remember, anyone can write a comment.
