IamA guy who explores the world and makes Science Videos. (I also drop cats and occasionally do Rocket Science) I'm Destin from the YouTube channel "Smarter Every Day". AMA!
You probably haven't heard of me. I'm just a normal husband and father of 3 that likes to learn, and kind of takes it to an extreme level.
I'd be honored to be given the opportunity to earn your subscription. Subscribers are typically inquisitive types that are open to the idea of a guy from Alabama doing cool science.
I have a BS in Mechanical Engineering and an MS in Aerospace Engineering with a concentration in Rocket Propulsion. I'm a full time Engineer and shoot these videos on my vacation time and edit them when my kids/wife are asleep (tonight I'm doing this AMA while they sleep).
I'm in the passenger seat while Wayne drives us back home to Alabama from hunting in Mississippi. Tethering on my phone, but have a few hours to respond to any questions. I always thought if there was enough interest in me doing an AMA I'd make sure I could reply with video responses on my second channel , but now seems like a good time. Ask me anything.
Here's the Smarter Every Day Facebook page I am really horrible at facebook, so please be gentle.

Lots of people are asking me about my faith with really really long questions. Obviously it will take time to go through those so I'm going to put them off for a bit.
