While the reporter will focus on space exploration, including such topics as NASA’s Artemis mission and SpaceX’s Starship, there’s room to cover everything from quasars to Star Wars. The ideal candidate is fascinated by how the internet shapes narratives around space and space travel. They’ve probably seen a few sci-fi movies in their life, and have a strong interest in consumer technology.
The reporter will be responsible for writing a mix of news and analysis, explainers, and in-depth reported features. They should be comfortable working in a variety of formats across multiple platforms as needed. Flexibility is a must. The role is best suited for a natural self-starter with strong journalism skills, a keen attention to detail, and a lively voice.
