    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.

      @Chris Davies I mean to be fair that's how irrational fears exist regardless, you know its irrational but you still feel fear. It would be unfair to say they can't perceive the risk correctly, they are well aware.

      You know you stand zero chance of being affected by a supernova - right?
      That was the whole point of this video.
      If it scares you, then you can't calculate/perceive risk correctly.

      It is a casual agent in retrospect of the increase in ozone, however in the case of an increased rate of thunderstorms it will end up becoming deadly, if not lethal to organisms (plants specifically but animals in severe cases)

      The ozone generated by thunderstorms will be much lower in the atmosphere and just act as a pollutant for the most part. Besides the still incoming radiation will break it apart again anyway

    this is really getting me thinking about what new life would look like if a supernova happened and it had to basically hit the "reset" button. how would future organisms adapt to the radiation? how would potential intelligent life make use of the things we left behind?

      @Andres Cavada All the evidence points towards it though, so it's likely to be how the universe actually began. Of course we can still be wrong, but the chance of that is quite small, although admittedly, not insignificantly small. But I wouldn't bet on it being much different than we have theorized.

      @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.

    Could you make a video on all the different types of "novas?" Like comparing the power and sizes of different explosions. Compare and contrast different types of stars novas. Like I imagine a black hole star has a larger explosion at the end of its life than even a black hole evaporating at it's end. But I'm curious if I am wrong.

      ​@ORANGUTEX "X thing (Usually a world) is cruel" is a common expression to show that the universe has pretty "Cruel" stuff in it, its not that the universe is cruel as a human is cruel.

    I witnessed a super nova when I was in the middle east. The sky where I was, was very hazy and the only thing you could really see at night other than the moon was planets. I would track planets for fun while there and one night I noticed an extremely bright light in the path of Venus and thought the planet was shining bright for whatever reason, until it completely blimped out of existence. I sat in the desert confused for about an hour wondering what I just saw. It wasn't until Venus came over the horizon that I realized it must've been a super nova.

    • HamsterFromAbove
      HamsterFromAbove Month ago

      Supernova last weeks or months, not a couple of seconds. For the thousands of years we've been alive as a species humans have seen dozens. Can you imagine how rare they are to see? 1 super nova seen in the night sky per couple thousand years.
      If a supernova were to be seen from earth it would make the news. It isn't something that one person could just look up and see without the entire rest of the world also seeing it. Google the year you think you saw a supernova and discover how none happened that year. There hasn't been a supernova visible with the naked eye in our life times.
      I don't know what you saw. But I can tell you for absolute certain you did not see a supernova.

    • Baz Pearce
      Baz Pearce Month ago +1

      @Jack Oakley Believe. Super Novas last for weeks and months, not seconds. Apart from 1987A there hasn't been one for over 400 years visible to the naked eye.
      It sounds like an Iridium flare. They were the original GPS satellites and they had huge solar panels that made them flare up brighter than Venus on occaision. I saw hundreds of them during the 2010s. The brightest i ever saw was about minus 8 magnitude, almost as bright as a full Moon.

    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 X-vid. (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 X-vid operation.
    Don't get me wrong, I enjoy X-vid and consistently watch it, but you also have to remember that some X-vid 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.

      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. Ephesians 2:8-9 Romans 10:9-10 Romans 4:5

      @Clipyy I admit, although I'm chill most of time, sometimes I give up on conversations, and stop caring about if I'm rude or not. Flaw, I know, but it's so funny to see people being like -- "you're a stupid loser" because they can't even make good insults or comebacks. XD

    What I really love about this channel is that when it discusses topics that could destroy earth, they assure the viewers that what they’ve talked about is extremely unlikely to happen, which probably helps calm down the kids that are scared to death.

    If we see a supernova explodes 30 ly from us.... Does it mean we have 30 years to prepare for a catastrophe? Or we just know it happened 30 years ago and we're doomed now, because we are facing the explosion and gamma rays are burning our eyes? 🤔😁

      We will only know after the supernova gets to Earth. The good thing is that stars that go supernova are so rare that the closest ones are more than 200ly away from us

    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.
