Apologies if this isn't quite the right place to ask this.

The popular science sites like Wired and io9 are too biased and reactionary for my tastes. I'm looking for sites or blogs that cover historical and contemporary science without injecting the writer's bias or agendas.

Does anyone have any reading suggestions?

    $\begingroup$ What do you mean by "covering historical science"? I can see how blogs can cover recent developments in science, but that wouldn't be historical. $\endgroup$ – Conifold Mar 6 '15 at 2:10
  • $\begingroup$ @Conifold, blog now usually describes a web site of a particular form rather than the original meaning of a log of websites recently visited, optionially with commentary. So Harry likely means a site of that form which discusses historical (or contemporary) science. $\endgroup$ – mgkrebbs Mar 7 '15 at 20:07

See links at Online resources for history of physics, History and Philosophy of Biology Resources, Chemical Heritage Foundation, Math Archives: History and Websites relevant to the History of Mathematics, also Teaching with Original Historical Sources in Mathematics puts an interesting spin on it.

I like Sean Carroll's blog on physics, Phil Plait's blog on astronomy, and Terence Tao's blog on mathematics, they occasionally write about historical issues. Some reputable science news sites are Discover Magazine, Ars Technica, Science News and Science Daily, Discover Magazine also hosts many blogs, so does Scientific American.
