  • I haven't watched the video yet (lol) but didn't you already cover this

  • The big bang is nothing but a pigment of imagination..... It never happened....

  • In the meantime we have two groups of idiots fighting over a rock

  • Really nice video like every time. And also really nice music! Thx for that great informations. Im really excited about the series about the Universe! Keep going guys!

  • Thank god i eat meat once or twice a month .

  • Wait but why does even universe, and where does it exist?

  • Love this content ❤️

  • We need arabic language please translate

  • thanks now i know how to deal with black holes.

  • As long humans will not stop killing each other we will have nothing other than one-way trips to Mars.

  • send the last humans to the right region near it so time travel will happen

  • As you said in 8:50 in future they may never know things we know now, and this is true for us too! We may never see the truth, things we see now maybe are just like things they will see in future!

  • The universe is a whole Kingom Hearts reference

  • Just imagine if were gorillas in a zoo, and the aliens are enjoying their time watching us grow and grow while they're sitting there with technology that probably defeats our thoughts and theories of never being able to see what has gone the horizon. Just imagine 😂

  • Question! Do the galaxies in our neighborhood move away from us towards ALL directions or they do they all move towards ONE direction expansively in an exponential rate? Very nice video

  • What if ~ Black hole white hole pair, matter that falls into the black hole is released into a new 'universe' or to a different place in our universe, recycling forever. Itzhack Bentov has an interesting model if you want to learn more

  • I'd like to live until humanity becomes a type 2 civilization

  • Minecraft world borders be like

  • Tbh I don't really see myself buying a poster or a shirt but a stuffed bird I would definitely be interested in

  • Faster than Light travel would, obviously, change rather a lot of the assumptions presented in this video, but any such technology is so far away, and so nebulous as a concept (leaving alone 'is it possible', accepting it to be still leaves how effective it actually is) that including it in a question like this isn't nearly as fun. Besides, the idea of the 'Observable' Universe eventually regressing to just our local group because of the speed of light is... sobering. The Universe is a big place, and it's still getting bigger. Neat.

  • Kurz is simply the best thing ever

  • I think like any living organisms humans once die we just disappear and dissolve back into the planet until the planet explodes only then will we travel the universe perhaps crashing into another planet any DNA or micro organisms may become life in another part of the universe

  • me : dad can we have scary movies? dad : we have scary movies at home Scary movies at home:

  • Flat universers incoming

  • Stop making me sad Science. We used to be friends!

  • holy this is crazy, so last night I was rewatching a bunch of old Kurzgesagt videos, and I rewatched the old " true limits of humanity" Kurzgesagt put up four years ago, not knowing they posted an updated version of it yesterday, and today I just watched this one and I was like this seems familiar, almost like I watched this yesterday!!!

  • Aha ha millions of doses of medicine wouldn’t that be a CRAZY situation... 18 billion dollars of drugs wow that’s great....

  • But what if humanity discovers or creates wormholes? Are they limited in the distance they can cross or can we get to these distant galaxies? (If they're real of course.)

  • I will say everything this guy says when my teacher says we have no limits

  • Good vlog

  • Homoeopathy works for everyone and any kind of disease, some people have Lot's of argument about it, but it's true that homoeopathic medicine works.

  • Anything is possible

  • Hearing the narrator say “birb” brings joy of immense proportions

  • *I am trapped in this channel.*

  • 10:05 "kurzgesagt" = try --> fail --> learn --> repeat ^^

  • What is After the Universe

  • Daek forest concept please! Or is this just made up by cixin liu? Id love to see more ahhh love your videos

  • These kind of shit makes me wonder if there is life on other planets and galaxys and I wish there is. Cause I would like to know how are these people living, what are they doing etc. Fascinating

  • This truely terrifies me

  • I love the animation

  • Respect for him for using fishes for the first time.. :)

  • Hi I just want to know if light speed traveling is really a possible thing

  • Am I the only one who's thinking about formation of new galaxies in the middle? Though it takes enormous amount of time.

  • They talking about the big bang like it's a fact even though it's all theory.

  • Why can't we dump a large chunk of our unrecyclable waste into active volcanoes? Presently we are just shipping it out to poor countries and that waste gets burned there anyways. Much of it is plastic, is light and can be flown over a volcano and dumped inside.

  • Activist should just shut up and let expert move things forward.

  • Activist should just shut up and let expert move things forward.

  • Wait, i've seen this movie. I don't want to live on a train.

  • this is most saddest video i ever seen

  • This is one of the reasons I'm so marvelled by God.

  • Nice vedio.everyone needs more than there salary to be financially stable.the best thing to do with your money is to invest it rightly.because money left for saving always end up used with no returns.i started investing in Bitcoin mid November 2020 with the help of a well-known- professional Mr Stephen Duncan and the profit entirely funded my receipt duplex.

    • I understand the fact that tommorow isn't promised to anyone, but investing today is a hard thing to do because I have no idea of how and where to invest in?

    • Interesting, most people don't understand the market moves and tend to be mislead in facts like this and always depend on Money in the bank.very bad idea.

    • @Sonia allen Anderson It's not how much money you keep, but how much money you make, how hard it works for you, and how many generation you keep it for.

    • Investing for today is priceless because tommorow isn't promised, trading bit-coin, gold , silver and crypto secures a better tomorrow.

    • Depending on one stream of income had never made any millionaire an earning check , that put you on Forbes.

  • Best channel ever

  • Oi! If someone were to start a company that specifically wanted to do this, I woud give you money!

  • As per my personal assumption: There is no boundry to the universe. It just goes on and on and on. The universe has infinite possibilities such as planet with gold, planet with platinum, etc. At the end conclusion we can say that universe is something that has infinite possibilities.

  • What happens when we will pass the horizon


  • Virus VS immune system

  • Interstellar

  • Why can't we dump a large chunk of our unrecyclable waste into active volcanoes? Presently we are just shipping it out to poor countries and that waste gets burned there anyways.

  • Great video, sad but enjoyable. 😔👍🏻

  • Shiva the Origin, Narayan is Universe, We live by the Design of Brahma. Matter = Shiva, Energy = Sakthi.

  • For now, enjoy the view of the night sky.

  • i love this channel

  • Milkdromeda aka Andromilk aka Milkmeda aka Mikomeda aka Andromeda's Milk

  • Hey I can notice just by the animation that this video is... well not even 2 years old, but you can easily tell it's gotten so much better. Pretty cool.

  • I've been saying this for years but nobody understood me. Life is just an illusion. We are no different from the stars or atoms. All the things in the universe change, evolve and work in a system with other things

  • My physics teacher had said we were in the perfect time to see the universe around us, it felt nostalgic to hear this again in this video

  • Lies, lies, lies, lies, lies, lies, lies, lies. Goodnight. This is what this channel is.

  • Literally every gamers dream.

  • Why not just try more eco-friendly measures like use the money to plant trees, reduce plastic, use renewable energy etc

  • Consciousness-based travel (Type 4) 😉

  • Maximum anxiety levels reached : D

  • Good video, i love your videos😁👍🏻

  • This is depressing, but at the same time, I somehow feel proud to call the Local Group our home <3 , we are all kin in the end !

  • It feels sad that some beings on milkdromeda can't even know the Truth that there existed a large universe, which was beyond their comprehension.😭

  • 🤯

  • please keep making videos forever

  • Maybe, in the grand scheme of things, humanities' goal in the universe is simply to leave enough evidence about galaxies outside of the local group for future, more advanced civilizations that can learn about all this exclusively by studying remnants of a long-gone, primitive species like us.

  • It would be interesting to know the difference between the 6% of the galaxy we can reach and the percentage of the universe we can observe right now. Can anyone maybe help me there?
