'Astria - Countdown to Impact' (Five ways to tell if info sources are credible or not)

While I was playing this game called 'Astria - Countdown to Impact', I realized that I had to determine which sources were useful and which were not very credible.
The game showed some some ways on how to separate solid information and facts than just regular rumors and conspiracies, so I want to convey this information to you now. 

The first way is to see if the source is from a certified and professional site e.g NASA for rocket information. These sites can definitely give you the correct information for what you are looking for.

The second is to check if the info is out of date or not. If you were researching what kind of spacesuit you should use, you should always use the up-to-date version, because it has the proper equipment and gear, rather than all the worn out models.

A third way is to check if its from a social media website because if it is, then you can be guaranteed that can't be correct. Mostly, it's about rumors or their own theories and thoughts if something has a vulnerability or not.
Next, the fourth way. Always see if the information is backed up by something. If it's not, there's a chance it won't be truthful about the subject.

Lastly, see if the info site is biased. If they're biased, they'll only tell one side of the story, and not the other. Steer clear of these places, because their information is often unreliable.

An Invitation to Blog about Playing 'Astria - Countdown to Impact'

A student has commented that..........

"Students don't learn much playing this game called 'Astria - Countdown to Impact: Their time could be better spent doing other things".

I disagree with this statement, and I have my own evidence to back my own claim up.

'Astria - Countdown to Impact' is a game where you have to make choices and decide which information sources are believable or biased and one-sided. It makes you have to study the info you have been presented with and decide which one is good and wrong.

It also lets you decide decisions with educated guesses and gathered data to persuade other people what would be the best and safest solution.
