About Me


Jari Makinen

I am a science journalist with deep interest in space, flying and especially in spaceflight.

I've been studying astronomy, but found quite early that I'm better in explaining the science than doing it. In addition to articles, programmes and videos I'm producing for many medias (mainly in Finland) and institutional clients, I also host and provide content for my own website Tiedetuubi.fi, support the Aalto-1 and Suomi100 satellite projects, organise exhibitions and write couple of books.

Recently I have been also deeply involved with a New Space start-up Arctic Astronautics Ltd.

I'm a member of several journalist and scientific associations in Finland and France and I've been awarded the Finland's State Award for Public Information.

I live currently in the France, but work globally.

When I don't work, I tend to go cycling.

My short CV is here and basic presentation of my books is here.
