This week we geek out some more about space, mention the demonstrations in Stockholm and the upcoming Cologne virtual skeptics in the pub. Some German children’s stories from the past are absolutely horrible and then we celebrate the birthday of Yuri Gagarin, the first person in space. Pope Francis went to Iraq endangering the public and himself and reported back that there was “a woman on the plane”. Then we have a covid-19 update before we get into the news:

  • Order of Physicians sanctions doctors who spread antivax misinformation
  • New book: Fact-checking vaccinations
  • Facebook struggles with checking non-English content
  • Electric cars do not produce more particle pollutants
  • Latest study reveals more about the placebo effect
  • The Good Magic Award 2021 winner announced
  • Skeptiker Schweiz changes name to Kritisch Denken

The UK General Chiropractic Council gets the prize for being Really Wrong.

Enjoy!

“If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family Anatidae on our hands.”
 
/ Douglas Adams (11 March 1952 – 11 May 2001) was an English author, screenwriter and humorist who knew where his towel was. /
