It really puts into perspective how truly insignificant our problems are, on this tiny speck of dust lol
For sure there must be pandora in avatar species aliens predators star wars thanos too
A spec of dust doesn't do this justixe
Now im not worried about them invites they sent out to the universe, its like yelling from the moon to someone on pluto and hoping it will be heard
Yep sure thing I totally agree
When I was a kid I always wondered why in Star Trek they only explore a tiny part of the galaxy. Why not go everywhere? Then you do the math and realize that even at the insane, made up speed of warp 9, which is like 1000 times the speed of light, it would STILL take tens of thousands of years to get from one side of the galaxy to the other. Even at crazy, made up speeds we can't begin to encounter even a tint fraction of the universe
why they use wormholes
Just like how there are practically no scifi stories that include galaxy spanning empires or similar such things. Because our own galaxy is so absolutely massive, you can make stories beyond the scope of anything imaginable just using our one galaxy.If we were to use the entire energy the sun produces. Aka. have a Dyson Sphere around it. We could have trillions of people just living in our one solar system.
at that point, wormholes would be more practical
The Milky Way is about 100,000 ly across, and "warp 9" is about 1,500x light speed. At that speed it would take about 67 years to get from one side to the other. That's still quite a while though for humans.
I know what the problem is the Earth is bipolar
I'm still amazed by the ability of our species to figure out all these stuff
This has to be one of the most amazing videos on the internet, it is absolutely unbelievable how massive the entire universe may actually be.
The wildest thing is to try to imagine a distance that never ends considering logic says it is impossible. Trying to imagine the end of the universe seems inconceivable. The makeup of what was here before the big bang and what is outside of our universe is a true mystery.
yeah that is exactly what i think about, like if the universe is finite then what contains it or what encompasses it idk it's so weird. even before the big bang, what was it like, there can't be nothing like no space or stuff you know, wtf
Have you ever imagined what the "end" or "edge" of the universe feels like? Maybe it's truly infinite
Reading through the thought patterns of different people in the single comments and in the threads.Can be very eye opening
It's so weird to think that our brain literally can't comprehend how big the universe is
@safeenah Abdullah jihadi always be jihadi 😂😂😂Scientist: This is universe.Jihadi: where is my 72 hoors 😂😂😂
@Ebrahim Adel yeah but only Christ is the way.
@Cypher Hymn 2.1 a bit exaggerated
@Toilet Man-_ What is the meaning of'stretch' ?
@Cypher Hymn 2.1 bit of a stretch mate
" Who are you in this strange universe? "" What are you doing, what is your actual purpose? "I think these are the right question that we should ask ourselves.
The concept, information, execution and thought stimulation are amazing! I have no idea how you've accomplished this, but good for you.
I love coming back to this video every now and then to remind me of earth and how tiny we are it sucks that we can't see more and far beyond our world but it's pretty interesting we definitely aren't alone 💯💯💯💯💯
This video is fantastic, really does get the mind to open up and think of the possibilities in years to come. We really are tiny in all of the entire systems out there. Keep exploring guys!
No need to explore the eternal black void of matter, silence, and darkness. It is impossible for mere living things to grasp this reality.
This is the video I fall back on when I am feeling down about something, Helps remind me how irrelevant & insignificant my problems are aha
That's exactly what a shroom trip feels like
@Wilsonatron like fungal spores floating gently away from the dying corpse of their home planet
That's the point of the lies. You are at the center of God's focus. Everything He did was for mankind.
I imagine people looked out at the oceans 1000s of years ago with the same type of fear and curiosity that we do now looking up into space. Who knows in a 1000 more years we might be traveling thur space in giant cruz ships like they do across oceans now. 😁
In 1000 years, without a doubt. We're about to have humans walking on Mars within the next 10-20 years.
1:19 Could you imagine being an astronaut traveling from Mars to Earth (or vice versa) and watching that little dot slowly grow so that like half way there it's like the size of the sun, until eventually you are on the planet that takes literally months and months to walk all the way around.Like can you imagine the scale of these things even at the most minute of distances when compared to the rest of the galaxy?
i cannot even begin to comprehend
This is one of my favorite videos about the size of space and the size of us. I keep coming back. Fun fact: After the ‘Pale Blue Dot’ photo, which was taken in 1990, the camera was turned off to conserve power. It’s predicted that Voyager 1 will never pass another astronomical object ever again.Thanks for this awesome video!! I love the detail and everything about it! Space is so cool!
6:45 if the distance from earth to every outside point of the observable universe is the same. It means that the actual unsiverse is way bigger because the chance that earth is in the excact middle is 0
Saying that aliens don't exist is like taking a table spoon of water from ocean and saying that fishes don't exist.
@Gabriel Traveler make sense
Fish dont exist if we havent seen them. Seems like an ignorant position.
So basically there's not enough evidence to prove or deny their existence just like any devine being like God for an example.
@Wally West I just want to know one thing, are you religious?
I've never felt so tiny after watching a video 😳 truly amazing stuff 🌎
I always thought it was crazy how you can see the milky way galaxy in the sky. But we are located in it. Always blew my mind🤯
8:52 that gave me a kind of epiphany, we are no more aware of our universe than a virus is aware of a human being.
Amazing to think that God, or whomever-being, might be willing to share this or any Universe with us mere mortal beings is pretty astounding in its own right. The average or mean or median size in the universe has been calculated to be about six feet, between the size of the Universe (the biggest and oldest thing we know of) and the Q-mason subatomic particle (the smallest and youngest thing we know of). "Life is a mere blip of light between two dark eternities".
Let’s just take a moment to recognise how impressive humanity is to have figured all of this out
@Anime God no worries, the fact that you even admitted "you changed my mind half" made me like you :D you know there are people that i've argued with on the internet that would never even try to understand my point of view cuz they've already made up their mind to disagree entirely. and yeah don't take the last thing i said that seriously, i just tend to get a little heated whenever having an argument which is bad
@rreettak Fine, you changed my mind half. I can say that humanity has achieved great things but will filter out the negative things about humanity. Basically, it is directed at those who did, so if we can't even specify pick out people then it is humanity, it goes towards those who had done it. And don't assume that I love negativity, I am trying to get away from it and this comment is an example of it. Kinda felt very bad when you said the negativity that I love so much but cool. I am stating I don't love it, no, not at all. But it haunts me so I can't help but remember it. That's why my profile pic has the brightest smile I could find.
@Anime God well when your comment started with "impressive? how so?" it didn't really sound like you were impressed or appreciating the work of those scientists either. and yeah i guess that's your way to look at the world. if my country wins for example in a sport competition, i'll celebrate that. did i contribute to their victory in any way? nAh but i'm still very much allowed to be happy over it and it gives me the sense of "yes we did it!". so when science achieves something and makes new breakthroughs, i feel happy in the same way. if you don't feel that way, that's alright but no need to shame others for it jesus."it is an achievement for those who worked for it". yes but they also couldn't have done it alone by themselves. so that they could, there's centuries of scientific deveploment as their groundwork. just imagine how many people have contributed to that...so when we're talking about advances in science, we can measure it by how far we as humankind have proceeded. but go ahead and spread that negativity you love so much.
@rreettak I am not underestimating importance even a tiny bit f discovery. stop fking taking things so sideways. my only problem was that one sentence and still is: This is not humanity achievement, just don';t fking include whole humanity in this. It is an achievement for those who worked on it. I haven't partaken in this endeavor of discovery or any other but I am impressed by them and those who worked on it. Only them, not the whole humanity. so get my point or no, Idc. you can sing all day about WE humanity or whatever, idc. Lump in those shts and goods together in one word.
This video made me feel exceptionally small way before the lightbulb/Pluto comparison but damn this video is crazy. Excellent job showing laymen like myself
4:48 They might be unaware of humans specifically, but for billions of years, anyone looking at the Earth with sufficiently advanced instruments would know that there's life here. The biosignatures have been detectable that long; even at intergalactic distances it could be detectable.
Thank you for a great, simple explanation of such a mind-blowing subject.
this honestly makes some of my worries eased. the sheer insignificance of it all can be highly distressing for many, but for me, i feel more comforted than anything by my irrelevance.
This either causes depression or cures depression
With all of these thoughts, I just accepted the reality. We are just mere destructible and mortal living things that miraculously existed.
@reallifelore there’s days I feel lost and just sad but then I see what you create and the platforms you use and I’m glad to say I started my own TheXvid channel and a great THANK YOU!!!! For inspiring me, entertaining and educating me!!! Keep them coming!!!!
It is actually comforting sort of relaxing to know that the universe is so vast with no end or the real end not comprehensible to our minds Would be scary and oddly adding to the confusion etc if there WAS an end point !
Even traveling 11 miles per second for 45 years, the Voyager space probes have only traveled a little more than a light day. At that rate it will take 16,425 years to travel the distance of a light year.
Imagine having the technology to traveling and exploring other planets. Yet we are in a multi something dimensional environment we can’t see let.
It’s weird to think that someone out there in a different galaxy could be wondering if other life exists, it’s keep me up at night.
There's no need to overthink what we cannot grasp. Just accept the "reality" of existence and the concept of life as we, mortal living things, see what is here and there. This is like, a single bacteria inside the human body imagines if there are other types of bacteria or organisms in other humans.
or another you in some distant part of the universe thinking the exact same thing
There's gotta be at _least_ millions of other planets with life in my opinion. It's estimated that around 500 million planets in our own galaxy are located within the habitable zone of their stars. And as we saw in the video, our galaxy is only one of billions upon billions.
Ya it’s making my head hurt
There could just be someone out there in a spec of dust floating through your house on Earth wondering the same thing.
It's unfortunate we're at this moment in our history where there is no more realistic options for exploration and colonization.... but instead now we're at the time of inventing new technologies so one day we will be able to explore again. I've always hoped there is other intelligent beings out there. Maybe we'll find out in this lifetime.
The voyager photo is soo eerie, beautiful, creepy, scary, and amazing at the same exact time...
Hey my friend, is it more stars than all the grains of sand "in the entire planet" or just "on all the beaches on earth"? Btw, thank you so much for educating me and you are awesome.
Great video thanks - short and sweet impression of the long roads and scary size of it all. BUT there is one mistake. It seemed immediately obvious to me that the time for a message to travel from Mars to Earth at light speed is not 20 minutes. Distance is 54.7 million kilometers - divided by 0.3 (300.000 km/h being 0.3 mio km/h) equals 180 seconds or 3 minutes.I have not checked the numbers with 18 or more zeros, but any mistake there would drown in the proportions and only be noticed by scientists.
The fact that we even know about this stuff is amazing
@46. Siddiksha Srivastava It's tons of maths and physics
It's amazing that concious life exists in first place.
*Yeah, but it makes me desperate. It’s so huge, but yet we can’t find any aliens and they can’t find us either? Where did we come from? Are we really going to be immortal? What is all of this about? It makes me so desperate.*
Could you do a video on how we even came up with these measurements? Like how do we know these superclusters exist? How can we even see or document that?!?!
I try to watch this video at least once a week, it really helps put my problems into perspective
If everything we have ever broadcasted (via radio waves, travelling at the speed of light) is within the little yellow square box, the same should apply to received info. How do they know/ calculate info received outside that box? Truly mind boggling stuff here, great video 🙌🏾
This video needs to be watched by everyone...especially the part at 4:36 talking about the "far reach" of our radio-waves, etc. Nobody knows we are here and that is a good thing.
I wish I could live long enough to see the entire observable universe. It makes me sad that I won't :(
Your body is constructed of space materials
There's many apps like space engine which has the observable universe inside of it, and you can explore each planet and each star.( I'm not really sure if it's the entire observable universe or just a fraction of it, cuz im sure a 3d map of the observable universe will take like 4 TB of storage.)
@Alex Bjarnaa Bro only our body die not the soul it left the body so there is after life
What actually makes me sad is that humanity will never reach the edge of the universe, so the answer to "what is the universe expanding on?" will never be answered.
Until we, as humans, can travel the speed of light, 99% of what we have learned about the universe, at this point, is purely theoretical at best.
The whole notion on that the universe was created thru the big bang and there was nothing prior to it is the same as believing everything was created when you became selfaware. I was looking for exactly a video like this, one that zoom out to the boundaries of what we can percieve. Looking at it it says to me that the big bang occurred a long time ago but the visible universe is just a part of a bigger universe that is inflating as a tiny bubble in another macroverse.
you say even if humans lived an eternity, we will never explore space like we want, but i believe someday not too far from now we will be able to create something that has no issues getting to any planet. I really wish I could see space with my own eyes and I wish we were close to exploration. Maybe in 1,000 years
Is strange how we see so far out of the universe when we only discover nothing about our deep sea
we can only comprehend what we can see . Light doesnt penetrate much deep in oceans .
I think it’s more terrifying to believe that we are alone rather than we aren’t
@Don Dokhmesy I don’t think it’s explicitly said in Abrahamic/Christianic religion, I’m not sure about Islamic or any others though
If you think about it, religion says that we aren't.
@Kev Redman yup what was fiction is now a reality
Similar words spoken by Arthur C Clarke.
I love Mass Effect (the trilogy) and to think about the game’s whole story, as big and as grand it was, it was set only in one galaxy.
It makes me sad that we won’t ever be able to know what lies behind these boundaries 😔
Stunning video.The only constructive I have would be in reference to the use of Pluto Vs a light bulb...it would be easier for us to understand if it was explained as a lightbult being the known universe and the rest of the unknown being around the size of Australia. Or, earth Vs an NBA basketball (yes I calculated that!🤣)
Mad respect to the cameraman that had to fly through space to film thisedit: can we just make this comment thread die? the reply section is absolute cancer. ok thanks
Hey this made me laugh its not cancer keep this sense of humour going my freind 🤠
... seriously 🧐No that was a joke 🤣SERIOUSLY ❗️🤔❗️
You started the thread, what did you expect lolAnyways, huge respect to the guy. Incredible effort
Thanks for making me feel even more small and insignificant than I already feel and making my problems and worries even smaller!
Loved the video and especially the “very not to scale” sign. Awesome job.
I would of never skipped one second of school back in the 70’s and 80’s if it was even half this interesting and informative !! My science teachers must of sucked !!
That circle on the Milky Way showing how far out signals go actually amazed me
We're a needle in a haystack. Scratch that, a needle in a trillion haystacks put together.
Naw a grian of sand in a universe full of hay
@Jared Smith planck
@Jared Smith we are smaller than 0.0000000000000000001% of salt in a undemillisextseptendecillion oceans
SEXtillion haystacks put together.
I like to think there could be some omnipotent intergalactic species outside the 'observable universe' that could destroy or find us in a secondThey just haven't been bothered to enter this insignificant lightbulb, and its tiny supercluster, and enter that one lil galaxy, and our tiny milkyway inside that, to find the speck that is Earth
Imagine living long enough to be able to see every planet and galaxy ever with super alien technology, would we even be able to comprehend it?
For me the most amazing thing is, every star and light we see, it's nothing like that at the moment we live in. Suns currently beaming have been destroyed years ago and such.
It bothers me that we'll never see what's truly out there. Are there other forms of life? Other earths? Other dimensions? That knowledge would probably drive a person insane
I literally cant think how big is the universe, my mind cant imagine it
That’s why our ancestors invented God. It’s impossible to understand universe.Don’t try to understand universe, leave it to god. Take care yourself!
Once the lord buddha said never research and find things about universe, it's that complicated
Basically the biggest black hole is the universe and we are bacteria 🥱 jees we would be tiny its hard to imagine big nor small if its basically impossible
@Fernando Cortes they are the result of human arrogance.. Ghosts and daemons are birthed from our fears.. They exist but not in the way we think.. They ain't what we think.. Religion is human arrogance.. Jus to show.. How important we are.. And something to relay own when we find ourselves hopeless.. This is the truth.. Mark my words
The "known" universe if you please. Some people believe it makes us, and our earth "insignificant", but when you consider the complexities of life, the perfect conditions required to sustain life, I say: be humbled by how very SPECIAL we are and how unique our spaceship Earth truly is.
It’s actually mind boggling I can’t even comprehend what I’ve seen.. My brain is just thinking thinking and thinking how far we could go how deep it just doesn’t make any sense I-…
Yesss!! Agree. I think we're not alone also. Every galaxies has a planet. And I don't think so every planet don't have species like us.
i watch this video when i’m struggling with depression. it just shows me that how small my problems are and i shouldn’t overthink anything.
Every time I watch this video I undergo ah existential crisis it’s mind numbingly amazing
Yeaaahh I agree.
I became amazed at the potential of the Universe when I was a preteen. At 71 years I still have this sense of wonder and a desire to see and know what is out there.
Same here. Dreaming of the potential of things is inspiring thoughts
@tibarion sorry what are we arguing about? what did i say?
@CvpcakKe_King333 They aren't being rude? There's so many ppl older than him that use the internet. Shit, the ppl who created the internet as you know it are older. Even Biden or Trump who are like almost 80 or whatever used Twitter before.
Seems we all get a little like this at 70 something ....50s born people are very inquisitive I find ...Batman, Wonder Woman, and of course Superman 🦸♀️ Era of folk, highly imaginative ..this is good
And want to know a sad fact? The Earth is not permanent! It will eventually collapse due to several reasons and the humans that will be living in that timeline will witness their extinction! Time to bring all of your music into space when that happens!
Keep in mind this just simple explanation on how big our universe is because the concept of multiverse, parallel worlds, time travel , travelling through wormholes etc is still left out just blows my mind .
3:33 everything said about that photo in the video means nothing, it's so hard to comprehend. But the deepest way to explain for some people like myself, imagine someone who you used to know that you never saw again. Who you've been looking for, they're on that tiny dot, and still the chances of ever seeing them again are almost 0.
Interesting, scary, humbling fascinating. Thank you.
This video always gives me goosebumps.. I always come here to watch it when I feel depressed or sad and makes me feel way better.
If you ever feel alone in your life, Just think about our earth.
If you ever feel alone in your life, remember that we have an individual body and mind, where no other being will be able to know the darkest secrets and pain inside our body. Everyone was and is just a first-POV human in existence.
Makes me feel sorry for earth bless it 🤣🤣
Tbf earth isn’t really alone, due to the size being of the universe it’s neighbours would basically be like sharing a single bed with 100’s of people
even earth has the moon
if you ever feel alone, nvm yea you're alone.
Our science teacher showed us this on the first day of our new space topic thats how epic this video is
I've watched this several times over the years, and it still is just so extraordinary!! thank u!
2:29 I believe that the Hubble Deep Field image is the greatest image ever taken by man.
Nothing but respect for the person who travelled all space to gather such informationjust to upload it on TheXvid
“we are so unbelievably small”bacteria: *i feel personally attacked*
Protoverse: ayo what the f- *explodes into a new big bang lmao*
@Tobirama Senju who you talking to?
Quark : the smallest thing in the world is forgotten
All science points to an expanding universe (inconceivably vast) since the Big Bang, and we hope for more information from the new telescope taking over from Hubble.But what was the Big Bang?
04:49 I think I would disagree as the yellow zone statement is based mostly on human capacity to search for life , perhaps an advanced alien civilization can detect other lifeforms galaxy to galaxy but perhaps not what do I know 😅
I was dozing off until i heard him say there's so much out there beyond our observation universe..the thought of the unknown of whats out there beyond our knowledge is daunting..it gave me goosebumps
10:26 "some parts of space are expanding away from us faster than the speed of light" I thought nothing ever was observed going faster than the speed of light, but apparently we know about parts of space going faster than the speed of light . Can anyone explain this?
Nothing can move through space faster than the speed of light, that limit still stands. In this case space itself is expanding faster than the speed of light and there is no limit to how fast space can expand.
The topic of the universe and space is really my favorite thing to read about. I’m fascinated more and more with every new discovery
The heavens declare the glory of God
Whenever im stressed out i just watch this video its reminding me that my problems are insignificant and irrelevant and for some weird reason makes me feel better lol
Came for the astronomy, stayed for the philosophy
What would happen if i were to be at the end of the entire universe and just kept on going? I wonder and im sooo interested in space
I would give up life just to be able to comprehend, understand and see what’s out there. Nothing is more fascinating than this
This hits hard, and I agree whole-heartedly. Especially if the knowledge gets passed on to the rest of humanity. I feel like it is our job as intelligent life to learn all we can about the universe, no matter the cost
That's a paradox but I know what you mean.
And just like that, you are willing to trade your soul for a flight of fantasy. Space doesnt exist, the earth is flat, the universe is a hella lot smaller than you have been led to believe.
meh... by my standards the universe seems really small, I'm actually feeling claustrophobic now, thanks a lot!
The most fascinating concept is that if the universe is infinite then there are inevitable exact copies of everything out there including you infinite times over. Which would mean we are all in effect immortal.
Just a small correction - driving approx. 40 trillions of km at a constant rate of 100km/h would take approx. 50 Mio. years and not 80 billons.Other than that nice job.
@natasha begley Do you know how to use a calculator?
This really just goes to show you that no matter where you are on Earth, you are not truly alone!
Me: wow that's incredibly big Video: But even that is incredibly small compared to...
You'd be surprised to know that Muslims have known this 1400 years ago. The prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said :"The lowest heaven compared to the second heaven, is like a small ring thrown into a desert.The second heaven in comparison to the third, is like a small ring thrown into a desert.The third heaven compared to the fourth, is like a small ring thrown into a desert.The fourth heaven compared to the fifth, is like a small ring thrown into a desert.The fifth heaven compared to the sixth, is like a small ring thrown into a desert.The sixth heaven compared to the seventh, is like a small ring thrown into a desert.“The seven heaven are in relation to the Kursi is like a ring thrown into a waterless desert. And the superiority of the ‘Arsh over the Kursi is like the superiority of the desert over that ring.
Nick Sacco stg😂😂
@Igor Kolosha - Micheal Scott
The fact that humans actually discovered all this information is mind-blowing.😦It seriously boggles my mind, I can't even begin to comprehend space and everything it is. 🤯But it is so fascinating. Our little speck of dust is absolutely incredible - despite how badly humans have f'ed it up. Nature is amazing. 🌎 🌍
So basically, if there’s more universe beyond the observable one, the universe is infinite
Tom Delonge from blink-182 once said “I love space I’ve always been fascinated with space. There is just no and there’s no fucking end in space. Anything that you can think or dream of is already there or has happened because it’s just that big! If space is infinite then there is an infinite amount of possibilities!” When starting angles and airwaves.
This video still blows my mind. Thank you for this research
Brilliant. Literally made me emotional for some reason. Just makes me want to look into the night sky and imagine what it is out there.
@Praise the Lord ironic statement coming from a christian lmao
@Bill A ooh sick comeback!
@Simon Runner - You used it too in your rant ... literally hahaha
Just whyyyy must everyone have to put the word "literally" everywhere... we learned nothing from like, actually, epic???
4:42 Just to clarify: Would Aliens be unaware of OUR existence outside of the yellow circle, or are we unaware of THEIR presence?
I love this video it tells the truth about the vastness of the universe and y we will probably never leave our solar system and definitely not our galaxy even if we do fine life elsewhere it will take decades if not thousands of years to send messages space is just too big
There just HAS to be life out there, you kidding me! The universe is just too too toooooooooooo massive to not have other kinds of life where things were just right for life to develop there according to its circumstances. Is there something special about being able to breath oxygen or water that if you can’t then life can’t exists or start? Is there any other kind of respiratory system that could breath and thrive on different elements other than the 2? What we see on earth as life is what’s possible here and if anything we’re to change than life would change to adapt while the rest would die off. If a major catastrophic event happen that killed off all of man and animals, something somewhere would survive and that would go on to be or lead to the new dominant life form here in earth. From dinosaurs to man and dinosaur descendants and the same just has to be taking place elsewhere in this universe.
I've seen a countless number of videos about the universe. But none of them hold a candle to this one. Thank u for puting the enormous size of the universe into perspective in such a way that the layman can understand.
It just sucks that we’re all gonna die and never know the answers to most questions.
@Ai-chan 愛してる can please explain why don't exist?
@Rhona O. I'm scared and in need prayers.
we can know but by following sprituality
@Rhona O. When did things go wrong in your life? Starting to talk about jesus after watching this...?
@Amine Khazene no not really
