    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

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

    Imaging humanity a 10 million years from now (if we survive) is just mind blowing. If we make it that far, we will probably be all over the known universe and be present in millions of planets.

    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. 😄

    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.

    I love the tonal whiplash of hearing how disastrous things could be at the same time as I'm vibing to the music, feels like vibing to abandon ship from subnautica

    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 also make a video about how would a supernova effect the nearby stars, gas giants and barren planets.

    One of the best things about this AZ-clip 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

    The amount of times we could just not exist because of the "Laws of the Universe" is too crazy to be true..
