Checker Tobi digs out the whole truth on YouTube

Tobias Krell (shown here on the left with the head of production at ArianeGroup’s site in Bremen, Germany) is a German YouTuber known as Checker Tobi, one of the members of the YouTube channel CHECKER WELT, with his mates Checker Can and Checker Julian. Wondering why they are all called ‘checker’? Because their goal is to check out all the preconceived ideas about life on our planet! They take a scientific approach to their investigations and talk to experts, engineers, and other reliable sources to explain the world around us. Tobi recently visited our site in Bremen to shoot an episode about Ariane 6 that will soon be released on YouTube!
