  • Man we probably can reach another star right now if humans focused on technology than politics

  • The nauseating node uncommonly carry because pizza currently interrupt toward a damaged division. daffy, fascinated streetcar

  • The universe copied fortnite

  • R u gonna do a vid on eating insects? 🐛🦗🐜

  • The amount of work in the motion graphics and illustrations alone would require a large team of people. That's not including the research, script writing, storyboarding, drafts, meetings, reviews, editing, sound, sound design, post, titles...producers, art director, director, IT team...all to post this for free - amazing.

  • This guy needs to leave the poor elephants alone🥺🥺

  • Seriously, Really, Really thank you for Korean subtitles.

  • Alians exists end of discussion.

  • Can we all just appreciate how hard Kurzgesagt's people work to edit and make these videos ❤

  • we will never get there by 'conventional means' ie light speed. but there will be ways to 'cheat the system' **wink**. and credit to kurzgesagt for admitting they were wrong and was spreading fake news

    • existed. That is nonsense and violates the law of non-contradiction. So the question remains; where did the universe come from?

  • A wild thought: Somewhere in a distant unobservable part of the universe there is an Alien civilisation wondering whether they are alone in the universe

  • why these things have much more cooler names than our owns?

  • theory of everything!

  • Well it's still not too late to invest in cryptocurrency.

  • 4:34 is officially the coolest shot ever the music and the video just perfectly mach and the tiny ships showing just how big the caplan thruster is, i just love it

  • I recommend googling that sea creature they mentioned, siphonophores. It was hard to figure out the spelling but there are some awesome photos online of the real creature.

  • Tldr: 17 particles following 4 rules

  • I started as one, then two (minds) and finally billions of cells. Now the exorcist movie makes sense... "I'm Legion"

  • let us know if you learned anything gold is 20x denser than a duck

  • Schadofh thruster is officially my new favorite word

  • A bowl o' what?! Soup?

  • There was a good opportunity missed to point out Einstein’s E=mc2 equation

  • it's only me or the duck's and bird's are realy cute :)

  • The lifespan of the black holes is so affacinating wow

  • But won't our own galaxy, The Milky Way "spread out" aswell?

  • Well you never know, in the future we might discover how to make a wormhole to wherever we want.... here’s hoping

  • This is the 1st time I'm actually understanding The heisenberg principle . Thank you

  • ᴵ'ᵐ ˢᵘᵇˢᶜʳⁱᵇⁱⁿᵍ ᵗᵒ ᵉᵛᵉʳʸᵒⁿᵉ ʷʰᵒ ˡᶦᵏᵉˢ ᵗʰᶦˢ ᶜᵒᵐᵐᵉⁿᵗ ᵃⁿᵈ ˢᵘᵇˢᶜʳⁱᵇᵉ ᵗᵒ ᵐᵉ ..

  • It’s not about the specifics of the hypothetical - it’s so ridiculous a concept that it will never apply to real life - but instead about the practice of considering the physical implications of a magical power; this video doesn’t tell you what to do in the case of a Midas apocalypse, but it does introduce the following idea: we don’t really know what we mean when we say “telekinesis” or “teleportation” or “shape shifting”. This is relevant, though, because in order to one day invent a way to accomplish these things, we must first better define what exactly we want to do.

  • Please make more immune system videos !

  • What happened to the video on Pluto and Charon that you said you would show next at the end of this video? I was so looking forward to it.

  • Jesus one year ago

  • I feel like this is gonna appear in a court room someday

  • When you realize your entire life is just a small time period in comparison to the universe.

  • c3 mORE LIKE C4 aMIrITE

  • I love sponsoring your videos ^-^

  • The future futuristic willow interstingly twist because nitrogen early dare worth a capable underclothes. decisive, lavish ronald

  • If the government had shown this vid to the whole world I'm sure we'd be in a better condition

  • Who is hatching in 2022-2025 Plz tell if Corona is over

  • Don’t like the AI sounding narration but otherwise good content. I would say another mistake is to suggest that future civilisations won’t know about the universes past or nature (stars, galaxies etc) because of the expansion. Surely our knowledge today will make it into the future. The time and size scales are beyond anyone’s comprehension and massively extreme to say the least so I’ll just go back to my small bit of reality for now, my home and family. Sigh…

  • I went to the poster section of their store and it's giving me nostalgia of childhood curiosity.

  • LOL Human kind has always like to look at the impossible and today it is impossible but there will be those who will think its possible. We conquer the sea to travel all the world. Able to travel faster and longer than a horse. Fly higher and faster than birds. Move beyond the bounds of earth. What is next ? Dreamers will dream and make the impossible possible.

  • Our blood is 90% water. Google more...... A pharmaceutical drug has a 50% filler which is usually powder or flour and that is going into your organs. I prefer the Homeopathy and water.

  • It seems ignorant to assume the Universe is only expanding away from itself. More likely is that the universe on a macro scale (almost a misnomer ik) is that it ebbs and flows with matter density greatly varying depending on where you are. We might even perceive this as if all of the universe is moving away from us since it's at such a large scale we can't accurately measure what is behind us and what is ahead.

  • Kurzgesagt: it takes 1400 hours to make a video Also Kurzgesagt: 19th march 2020


  • The world's largest solar panel is blue and takes up 75% of the world Unlimited power if we dig enough lakes

  • That duck is basically insulting humans saying we aren't smart

  • this channel needs more subscribers. the animation is just so outstanding!

  • O company of jinn and mankind, if you are able to pass beyond the regions of the heavens and the earth, then pass. You will not pass except by authority [from Allah].

  • The idea of Milkdromeda being surrounded by total, unknown darkness is coldly terrifying. I'm curious about it, that'll be about the time the universe ceases to exist? Because damn, we can't even comprehend our own minds... Imagine not being able to comprehend and grasp the way things work in the place you stand on? Like SHIT, the more I think about it... it feels like cavemen all over again, but, you know... just BIGGER, but it's still the same thing.

  • It's 1:45 am, why am I watching this I have a hard enough time sleeping. Now I have more thoughts running in my head.

  • The universe was not created from nothing. Ex nihilo nihil fit. From nothing nothing comes. The universe did not create itself either. To do that it would have to exist before it existed. That is nonsense and violates the law of non-contradiction. So the question remains; where did the universe come from?

  • Japan : we need moareeee

  • The fact that we think in the context of nations all the time is what will be our end. This problem, as with all, is a human problem, not a Chinese one or an American one.

  • 3:19 sus

  • Not sure why I thought it was a good idea to watch this before going to work.

  • what you said is based on estimations, not facts

  • What is with FTL like Hyperdrive??? I don’t understand this video. It’s based on a lot of assumptions. Still awesome 🤣

  • How science know that but never really reached to see it?

  • wanted subtitles in portuguese brazil ☹💔

  • I would hope a level K2 civilization could traverse space/time like a vinyl record: that those impossible distances due to expansion wouldn't be an issue as they could travel there in the past. A method of propulsion that also rides a groove of time "backward" and closing the distance by both methods.

  • fak milk dud

  • "You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain"

  • a multi-paradigm potato?

  • This is only based off the information and knowledge that we currently have. Never say never.

  • Surely if you were to reincarnate, you'd reincarnate as yourself. Or perhaps you are constantly dying and reincarnating into a different version of yourself along your own time/life line.

  • There is no largest star, even if we find a star we have never seen this large there is always a bigger one.

  • Why doesn't our galaxy move with the fabric? It does. duh.. this won't happen.

  • Those galaxies which are no longer visible to us have their own local group gravitationaly bound to them and to them we are the galaxies which are disappearing. The big mystery to me is what they are passing into and how big is this unobservable space. At some point all the galaxies will be so far apart they will be alone in the blackness of space until the last star burns out then nothing at all.

  • Wait 3 Montes to go to Mars on a Space ship nope

  • But what about faster than light travel and wormholes !

  • 3.19 among us

  • So what’s the point of living?

  • Oh s&it! This sure edits my already pretty big knowledge of cosmology into being WAYYYYYY out of date. Bugger.

  • 7:14 :))) see ya

  • So if we know our absolute direction and speed in the known universe, we could build a relay station and slow that to almost stationary. Since its relative velocity is less than C for both our universe and the observable universe it should be able to record the observable and ping it over to us.

  • the worst part is, we're guessing the insides of something that we barely know even exists on the outside
