ALEXANDRIA, Virginia — SpaceNews is pleased to announce that veteran defense reporter Mike Fabey has joined its Alexandria, Virginia-based editorial team as a senior staff writer covering military space, a beat he previously covered as Defense News’ air and space warfare reporter in 2005 and 2006.

Mike was an Aviation Week  Pentagon-based editor from 2006 to 2016 where he won the 2014 Timothy White Award for his Pulitzer-nominated investigative series about the U.S. Navy’s attempts to hide the crippled condition of its newest warship. He’s also well known for exclusive reports he filed from a Chinese destroyer during at-sea drills. Since last summer, he’s been writing for IHS Jane’s and Scout Warrior.

His first book, “Crashback: The Power Clash Between the U.S. and China in the Pacific,” will be published by Scribner this fall.
