Known Rumors Panel
In the Known Rumors panel you can view a list of the rumors you know. Be aware, other rumors are still in play, you just do not know about them.

Rumors are temporary conditions that can exist in various locations on the map.

Keep an eye on the rumors summary panel whenever a new rumor is discovered, as the summary will tell you how many jumps away that rumor is, as well as what the rumor effects are and how they can benefit or harm you, your ship, and your crew.
