Scott Manley is someone who fell into youtube because he felt a deep compelling need to teach people orbital mechanics and rocket science so they could play Kerbal Space Program, now, years later the gaming videos are less important and the pure science is the main thrust. My degrees are all in Physics and Astronomy, so much of the rocket science and engineering I've learned is self taught, always learning, always teaching. I'm not a professional youtuber, I have a day job in software develpment which means I won't take sponsored content, or tell you to sign up for affiliate services to make a quick buck. However lots of generous people have asked to support my hobby via Patreon and I'm grateful to those individuals. Also occasionally shares cute videos of his kids. And for everyone asking about the music at the end of my videos http://ccmixter.org/files/tigoolio/45377

Today the plan is to stream camera views from Red's Rhetoric and Astronomy Live, they'll be at a location near the launch site with their homebrew tracking setup and should give some great independent views to complement the official broadcast, we'll hopefully start streaming about an hour before liftoff, see you then!

China is the first country to land a spacecraft on the far side of the moon, but the first pictures of the far side of the moon were taken by the Soviet Luna 3 spacecraft which was accidentally helped by the CIA & General Mills https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDs8r...

Season 3 of 'The Expanse' begins tonight, if you haven't seen it one of my favourite videos is where I took clues from the stories and figured out just how amazing the rocket engines in the show are.

This week is GDC - the Games Developers Conference, an event which brings gamedevs from all over the world to show off their new stuff and learn about new technologies. Being a programmer who loves games it's one of my favourite events of the year. I'll be posting about this all week but here's my favourite video from last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I270v...
