About Scott Manley


Scott Manley here. Some people call me an 'Internet Rocket Scientist'. I'm not a rocket scientist, but I play one on the internet. I've got a reputation for talking about space, rockets and video games.

I'm perhaps best known for my space-themed YouTube channel which brings science into video games and teaches the math behind rocket science. Over the last decade, my videos have generated over 250 million views and attracted over 800,000 subscribers. Making science videos is a hobby for me that now takes almost as much time as my day job as I tackle questions that people want answered, questions like:

  • “Can you see a laser pointer from the ISS?”
  • “Why Do So Many US Rocket Launches Use Russian Engines?”
  • "What is a Hoverslam?”
  • "Is Elon Musk's latest idea feasable?"

I grew up in Scotland and spent a decade in academia studying astrophysics and computational physics at the University of Glasgow and Armagh Observatory where I focused on small bodies in the solar system and specifically the probabilities of collision, basically worst case scenarios. I left research in 1999 to move to California and work in the technology industry.

I started this Patreon page because many of my viewers have asked for a way to support my videos. My preference is to stay away from paid sponsorships or ads and just present the pure undiluted science and anecdotes.

If you are interested in supporting my videos, would like to have access to exclusive content or get your questions answered more quickly, subscribe to my channel and find a tier that supports your needs.

Thanks for your support. I look forward to sharing my passion for science with you all.
