    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?

      @Yeetus Deletus bro animal life survived. Thats more complex life than the first 3 billion years of life on Earth. I mean as in life survived, not only survived but survived in very complex forms. Like apparently there'd still be insects, fish, crustaceans, plants, fungi, anything else deep in water or soil. Very complex organisms. Not just single celled organisms.
      It is impressive how much life (even complex life) can shrug off without dying out entirely.

    The best part about Kurzgesagt, apart of course from the beautiful scientific videos, is that they always include music from their previous videos to cite references. For example, at 9:17, they subtly added the OST from their video on stellar engine made 2 years ago where they talked about how to move the solar system out of harm's way.

    Could you please do a video about what would happen if Venus & Mars swapped atmospheres or locations (assuming the change in gravitational forces in the solar system doesn't completely screw up Earth)? Would it make the planets less or more hospitable for human colonisation / terraforming? Would Mars become hot enough for their frozen lakes to melt, yet cool enough to keep them from evaporating? What would be the consequences of swapping positions vs simply swapping atmospheres? Would the surface of Venus become a place we could travel to? This is something I am very curious about.

    Could you offer some clarification on the range of "Radiation" you reference? I am assuming from the symbolism that you mean the part of the spectrum that we associate with isotope like uranium and plutonium. It would be interesting to know what sort of effects that may present such as, I've heard, that radioactive isotopes can feel very warm and certain concentrations without reaching boiling temperatures. (also that this means it's likely doing a lot of damage to cells)

  • Finlay Craig

    so why does a supernova being further away make a difference to the damage it does to us? I thought nothing slows down in space because no resistance? Obviously effects will take longer to reach us but why arent the effects the same when they do? Is it because the rays spread out so the further away more rays miss us?

      Hi, if you are not saved, and would like to be included in the rapture of the church. Believe that Jesus's death on the cross, was enough to pay for ALL your sins , yes ALL ,(past, present and future) That is what the Gospel is about. We are saved by GOD'S amazing grace, through our faith in Jesus's sinless life, death on the cross and resurrection 3 days later . No additional works needed. It is literally that simple.

    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.
    For years I've evangelized this channel to my friends and coworkers as the gold standard of educational content, and I still get giddy when a new video comes out. I've purchased dozens of calendars, posters, and journals, and I will happily continue to support this amazing channel. Cheers, Kurzgesagt!

    These videos are TV quality, yet you produce these and offer them to us for free -- not on one channel, but on multiple channels, most of which required translations -- all for free. I respect you. You guys are one of the channels that make UAclips. (DISCLAIMER BELOW, because there's a lot of debate in the replies.)
    A lot of people have taken "TV quality", to mean bad. However, I want to make it clear that I didn't mean the comment as an insult, but as a compliment. It is also important to note that I did mean streaming services, such as Netflix, not cable. Though I spend virtually no time watching either, this comment meant more so that this is quality content, that I could see becoming official rather than a UAclips operation.
    Don't get me wrong, I enjoy UAclips and consistently watch it, but you also have to remember that some UAclips channels (such as this one) are more... polished, than others, especially considering that this is the same platform that has the family vloggers, and "DON'T CALL AT 3 AM!!! 😲😲" videos.

    I bought kurzgesagt "Universe in a nutshell" mobile app, just to support the channel in my little way. Also coz I figured it would be damn *good*
    Boy it is! The visuals are impeccable, and the descriptions of each entity, are funny and thus memorable. What's most remarkable is how they scaled everything relative to each other from the smallest strings to supermassive blackholes.
    It does feels like the entire universe is in your pocket "correctly". Or like a book about our universe, but literally the best one out there.
    They're undercharging as far as I'm concerned for the app.
    I'll make the same comment in other videos of the channel. Why? To promote their app because I don't see anyone talking about it. It's that good. More so, I want my fellow humans to be educated. Other day I found out that my 34 years old friend didn't know that we're living in milky way and there are other galaxies around us. UNBELIEVABLE. He must've been living under a rock bigger than Sagittarius A (The black hole in milky way galaxy). So yeah, go buy their app.

Jesus say, "But when the Son of man comes, will there be any faith on earth?" Believe Jesus is the Son of God. Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord. Read the Bible!

    Thanks Kurzgesagt for putting yet another one of my fears to rest. There are so many things we know about these days that sound almost unfathomable in their depth of potential damage. Instead of floating around in my head as another "what if?" scenario, this fear is finally able to shut up. This channel has done so much good for my anxiety, I really can't say thank you enough.

    This was definitely interesting. I hadn't realized how much still goes on in a supernova after the bright flash has faded, so I was figuring that anything far enough not to substantially heat up the planet directly wouldn't do much damage.

    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.
    For years I've evangelized this channel to my friends and coworkers as the gold standard of educational content, and I still get giddy when a new video comes out. I've purchased dozens of calendars, posters, and journals, and I will happily continue to support this amazing channel. Cheers, Kurzgesagt!

      Hi, if you are not saved, and would like to be included in the rapture of the church. Believe that Jesus's death on the cross, was enough to pay for ALL your sins , yes ALL ,(past, present and future) That is what the Gospel is about. We are saved by GOD'S amazing grace, through our faith in Jesus's sinless life, death on the cross and resurrection 3 days later . No additional works needed. It is literally that simple.

      But ok, if it isn't for attention then ok. I can't make too big of an assumption. :')
