The Astro mods are considering the possibility of getting some ads put in astronomy-related magazines for Astronomy.SE. We could easily look up some popular magazines, and we probably will. But I thought I'd take a moment to ask our community, because you may make us aware of some that are important to you.

So what (astronomy-related) magazines do you subscribe to?

(Physics or science in general might be good target magazines too.)

  • $\begingroup$ How did it go? I think it was a great idea! If I were an astronomer I would try to figure out how to about give a short talk "How to ask and answer in Astronomy SE" at some conference. $\endgroup$ – uhoh Dec 30 '20 at 21:35

    $\begingroup$ @uhoh If I recall correctly, nothing ever came of it. I can't remember if Rhys or Don was spearheading it. $\endgroup$ – called2voyage Dec 31 '20 at 1:25
  • $\begingroup$ this situation sounds like some direct advertisement to people skilled in the art/active in the field might be a big help. Politics SE really got their community under control quite nicely, this one is harder because it's a very popular topic among both the general public and (likely very busy) active researchers who can't be bothered, and because it's so new there aren't a lot of older established people who have both the extra time to spend and the detailed knowledge to address the issues. Perhaps what's needed is a knowledgeable community? $\endgroup$ – uhoh Jan 1 at 6:11

One magazine that I am aware of is "All about space" which has a fairly broad reach of about 63,000 readers, probably more since that measurement was taken.

It focuses a lot around space and planetary sciences and covers some far reaching topics such as the formation of the universe and creation of galaxies, as well as new discoveries and launches.

I know it is certainly a good choice based in the UK, not sure how this compares in other countries though.
