When I first created Fun Fact Science in 2016 all I wanted was to share a little science with some friends and family online. It started with daily posts, fun facts shared on Facebook and Twitter about science-related topics that I thought were noteworthy. After a while I started using the platform to share educational videos, astrophotography, updates on scientific breakthroughs, and news from the space industry. I began to enlist the help of other scientists and science communicators, forming collaborations that helped spread knowledge around the world.
But knowledge alone isn’t the answer! Reasoning, understanding, and critical thinking are just as important, if not more so.
On this website you’ll find blogs by scientists from different backgrounds - sharing insights from their research and experience - as well as a range of educational and inspirational content. Whether you're a student, a teacher, or just curious to learn, I want to make science more accessible to you!

Behind the Scenes
Kovi Rose is an astrophysics PhD candidate at the University of Sydney. Since his BSc at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, he worked on observational astrophysics research using radio telescopes to study supernovae, flaring radio stars, and other interesting astronomical transients.
Having noticed the increasing trend of anti-intellectualism and science denial, Kovi developed a passion for science communication and outreach. After the creation of Fun Fact Science, a social media science communication platform, Kovi has worked with an international community of science communicators and educators on a number outreach campaigns; centred around topics like women in STEM and astronomy.
In addition to his social media science communication, Kovi writes and produces videos for Veritasium and co-hosts the Space Case Sarah podcast on iRoc Space Radio.
Outside of his online efforts, Kovi worked for the Ramon Foundation in a project-based learning program which culminates in the annual launch of an experiment to the International Space Station; in addition he taught in the Young Astronauts program as part of the Hebrew Youth University on the Hebrew University campus.
