Felix Schlang

Felix Schlang is Content Creator and Host of the YouTube channel What about it!? where he covers SpaceX, Space, and Technology.

Felix currently has over a quarter million subscribers to his fast growing channel. He currently focuses on Starship development where he covers an in-depth analysis of building progress, not only of Starship itself, but also its ground equipment. Big events such as Starship prototype launches are being covered with livestreams, using LabPadre’s and SpaceX’s streams.

On his channel, Felix also covers other space-related topics such as important milestones by other space companies and NASA, like the Mars Rover Landing.

Felix was born in a remote region of Germany and was always interested in space and astronomy. He did extensive self-study of astronomy and rocket engineering and at the same time worked in the media business as a cutter and audio engineer. As a family man with a smart wife and three children, Felix always explained the universe to his children and anyone willing to ask. At a certain point it just made sense to integrate these interests into one profession and so the YouTube channel What about it!? was born.

Now the most successful YouTube channel about space and astronomy in Germany, he travels the world to talk to all sorts of experts from scientists to Apollo era astronauts to explain to you, what the dawning second space race is about and why it makes sense to build giant stainless steel Starships on a remote field somewhere in Texas. He recently moved to Cape Canaveral, Florida to be closer to where SpaceX is again making history.

Felix graduated from Office Administration in 2010 at Deutsche Angestelltenakademie Bonn. He became an Account Manager for Meditec Germany in 2013 and soon became a Branch Manager at where he took care of new business development, personnel management, public relations, key account acquisition, process formation, and advertising measures.

In 2014, Felix became Sales Representative at Lyreco Group until 2019, when he focused Full Time on his YouTube Channel What about it!?

Felix is also Ambassador at Expore Alliance.
