    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?

    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.

    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. 😄

    One of the best things about this VNclip 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

    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.

    The fear of a supernova exploding within my lifetime is so small I’m not worried at all I’ll probably be dead if a supernova ever happens within my lifetime

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

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

    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

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

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