Hello! I’m Ariel.

What do I do?

What do I create?
Books, videos, events, and websites that make space exploration and science more friendly.

You may know me from some of my creations, like...
• my YouTube channel
• Science Hack Day, a grassroots community event around making things with science that is now in over 25 countries(!)
• Spacehack .org, a directory of ways for anyone to participate in space exploration
• Spaceprob .es, a catalog of all the human-made machines that freckle our solar system
What's It Like in Space?, my first published book of amusing astronaut stories
• ...and too many others to drone on about (srsly)

That sounds like a lot.
Yep. I'm even working on a project to go to Antarctica, too. But it turns out that I love working on many things at once! That's just me. 

Anyway, thanks so much for considering supporting my work and becoming an official Space Friend. In return, I'll send you sneak peeks, random stuff, rough ideas, and we can hang out in the community tab.

Come join my Space Friends crew and let's geek out together!
