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?

What is with all the hate for Veritasium in these comments? Usually science and education channels have mostly civil, respectful and curious viewers. It's weird. Derek is great at what he does and Kyrzgesagt are great at what they do. They both approach science education from completely different angles with two different styles of presentation and both creators/teams work very hard on what they do and will always admit to any mistakes. The toxicity is unwarranted. Just be thankful you can even access this kind of high level, high quality science education media for free.

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.

In the end, I hope that before the unvierse dies and we all rest, it doesn't happen, so that we can at least make some disoveries and then part from this universe leaving our mark.

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.

@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.

@Kris b I hear this argument a lot and I'm curious to ask. Isn't that just a fundamental of life? How are the sciences excluded from the human experience. We make as much understanding as we can with the information at hand and then decide to act on it. Dispite it's many flaws the scientific community generally acts on this main principle.

We must to believe in Jesus. Doomsday is on the horizon. If you follow the Bible you will know that most all of the 1,800 prophecies has come to pass. Once the final few happen Jesus Christ will return. 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!

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

Please feel free to make an entire video on how would humanity survive on the 100 LY Supernova if there happens mass extinctions as most of the plancton dies. Would agriculture as we know it still be viable? Even forests? If not, civilization is impossible. And even if, at first, it would still be possible to live as a hardenned nomad bad-ass(problably members from already nomad tribes in the present), if even forests and grass did die out, it would make impossible to exist food for these nomads. So it would be dificult to imagine humans surviving without super-mega-bunkers capable of susteining itself alone for many years, retaining seeds and some wildlife to repopulate eventually.

Just a technical fact Supernova (death of star producing neutron star) isn't nova (a white dwarf star throwing off the matter it ate from a nearby star)

I love the subtle change in music as the video goes on. Also, I love how you're well aware of the existential dread you can impart on others, but how you can use science to dissuade that dread too.

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.

Of course the beginning of the universe is a theory, and not a scientific fact, that was failed to be mentioned here.

@_ zajlock_ I couldn't care if you don't appreciate it. I actually don't make comments like these, I just think calling them a narcissist isn't accurate really. But ok, if it isn't for attention then ok. I can't make too big of an assumption. :') Side note: I never get a notification for comments if someone replies, so sorry if I was a bit late.

@Clipyy If you're saying "people don't appreciate this and that", you're implying (at least in my opinion), that you're the only one understanding the beauty of said thing. Not doing anything for attention, I'm open to discussion if you want to change my mind :)

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.

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!

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.

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
