Tiedetuubi: fun and factual science & technology

Tiedetuubi is a popular online-only science publication in Finland. It has been covering science and technology since 2012 and has already about 4000 articles. More stories and videos are published weekly.

Originally Tiedetuubi was merely a hobby of its founders Jari Mäkinen and Markus Hotakainen, but has grown recently to leading science media in Finnish and is in fact acting also as a science (especially space related) news agency.
