    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?

      Hey! This was foretold in Ancient Apocalyspe series!
      If it's possible that we've already extinct once, what can we do to survive better this time?
      Maybe the temples followed the brightest stars in the sky(Sirius) to look out for either the Meteor shower or the Supernova happen around the last ice age?
      And from the Gobekil Tepe pillars they foretold that the meteors come when the star aligns with other animal star map depictions next to the snakes(depictions of the meteor rain) would come back 11600 years later
      What would we do if that same thing happen now? I heard from the series we're in danger zone now

      The universe is cold and unforgiving. Its wild thinking how far a supernova could be and still lead to mass extinction. As a child when I first learned about light years Imagined they were so far they didn’t matter (like in the same way I didn’t care about a 1 billion dollar car because that amount of money was unfathomable to me).

    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!

      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.

      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!

      @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.

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

      Thank you for the appreciation. :)
      The often apparent difficulty in striking up an enjoyable and healthy conversation is largely why I'm trying to change the way I interact with people.
      I can't control other people (and if I could it would be boring anyway) so I must do my best to not get in my own way, because I like to chat and ramble. Which you can't do very well while trading insults haha.
      I have started so many unnecessary online arguments, it became a habit. Looking at my initial comment in hindsight I see some bad habits still remain. Like fuck I can fatuous sometimes. XD

    I think this is the most likely reason we haven't seen intelligent life in the galaxy yet. There are probably massive regions of space where previous supernovae either destroyed developing civilizations or set back the development of life millions of years. Any life-sustaining planet would have to exist in a "safe harbor" space where there are no supernova-capable stars within a certain radius, and maintain that favorable position for the billions of years it might take for intelligent life to form. That's a lot of time for things to go wrong, so my suspicion is that there are only a few places where this specific criteria exists in our galaxy.

    I remember we had to write an improv story back in high school (I guess it would have been the mid to late 90's) and I wrote mine on NASA (or maybe it was some futuristic fictional space agency) repairing the ozone layer. I don't know if it would/could really work that way but I think that was around the time I read about cloud seeding somewhere and it made me think of that. The ravages of being 36 and a former alcoholic and drug-addict have kind of fried the creative and ambitious parts of my brain these days. But it seems like if we had some kind of modern civilization ending event, we could just revert to like 18th/19th century life relatively easily - after a few generations; Just like pre-internet/pre-electrical life...

    "Killing everything that sees sunlight". That totally depends on where the nova appears and where you are on the earth as it turns.
    If it appears near the sun, daytime would be dangerous but night a bit safer. If it appears the opposite side to the sun, you'd just have daylight all the time but "normal" day time would be the safer time. If it appeared above the north pole, you'd be a "bit safer" in the south.
