    Supernovae are the most powerful explosions in the universe, unleashing enough energy to outshine galaxies. We have no real metaphor for their power - if the sun were to magically go supernova it would feel like you were being hit by the energy of a nuclear explosion, every second. For weeks.
    While supernovae are the engines of creation, forging the elements that enable life, they also burn sterile whole regions of galaxies. So what would happen if one hit earth?

    The amount of times humanity could have not existed because of how the galaxy works genuinely blows my mind.

    Our position in the universe like we are not close to anything dangerous and the perfect condition for life to exist just blows my mind

    Hello, I love the videos you do on space, it would be great if one of your next videos talked about the aquaponics system and its use in space missions. 😄

    This video helped me understand life being created or extinct. Thank you❤️

    Love your stuff! I ordered a hoodie and other items from your site, can’t wait to get them tomorrow. If I may ask, would you do a video of what would happen if an asteroid the size of the one that ended the dinosaurs (or even the one featured in the movie “Armageddon”) was to hit the moon? It would be interesting to see what it would do to the earth if anything at all.

    Great video on supernovae! Amazing that we were both working on the same topic at the same time. I hope everyone knows that these videos take months of lead time for both of us so there is no way one video was inspired by the other or vice versa.

    “There are roughly two ways to make a supernova”

    Honestly, it's bloody impressive that life can shrug off a supernova even as close as that. Life finds a way.

    This is a remarkable video. Could you please tell me how you did the animation?

    The fact that even some life would survive a supernova 4 light years away is extremely impressive and shows how resilient life is

    Can you please make a video about sleep disorders? Insomnia, sleep apnea, upper airway resistance syndrome, restless leg syndrome, narkolepsy, plain snoring?

    I first discovered Kurzgesagt back in 2015 with their videos on nuclear energy. I remember thinking at the time, "Wow, this channel makes some great content. I hope they end up growing and getting more attention." Seven years later, my wish has most certainly been fulfilled.

    i was wondering what if the boosters was a little bit smaller bcs it seems like the boosters are gonna destroy some planets while moving

    I'm surprised by the amount of damage a supernova could do to underwater life. I expected the water to shield all of the radiation, with rising temperatures being the only concern.

    One of the best things about this TH-clips channel is that it gives science backed information which isn't normally accessible, breaks it down to a level where almost anyone can understand, constantly updates us with new research, and gives it to the public for free. Thank you for what you do, Kurzgesagt
