Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell Пре 5 месеци
We created our first app ‘Universe in a Nutshell’, together with Tim Urban of Wait but Why! You can get it here: Appstore: Google Playstore: Oh boy. Making an app is hard. It seemed so easy when we started. We underestimated the necessary work load and all the potential problems tenfold - this is not a figure of speech, this took ten times longer than we thought it would. And we are sort of used to working on big projects. So the first update to the app should hopefully be here in the next 24 hours (we are waiting for approval of the update in the app stores) - it will fix a bunch of small things that slipped through. We’ll constantly improve this thing because while it was honestly a horrible nightmare to make, it also was fun and we want to get better at it and make more things in the future. In case you don’t know Wait but Why btw, it is the best and most fun blog on the internet ( and if you don’t know it you should change that like right now. Tim and I collaborated for the first time in 2013 and we have been good friends ever since. And this thing was something we started talking about years ago. So what is this thing we made and why? You can seamlessly travel from the smallest things in existence, past the coronavirus, human cells and dinosaurs all the way to the largest stars and galaxies and marvel at the whole observable universe. You can learn more about each object or simply enjoy the sheer scale of it all. It’s a fun plaything. The app is inspired by the “scale of the universe” website by the Huang Twins that Tim and I spent a lot of time with when it came out years ago - and felt that it was finally time to create a Wait but Why and Kurzgesagt version. There are no in-app purchases and no ads. All future updates are included! Since this is our first app we would love to hear your feedback so we can improve it over time. Leave us a five star review if you want to support it. Kurzgesagt and all the projects we do are mostly funded by viewers like you. So if you like the app we’ll make more digital things in future! Ok! Thank you for reading - Philipp

There are no “large stars”! Lol, smh. Get a Nikon p900 and look for yourself. Stars are close small, electric type orbs... not far off burning gas ball giants. Anyone can confirm this, we’ve been lied to by NASA and big astronomy. Seriously, get a P900 and look at any star in close up, then tell me it’s a far off giant. Haha, I said this before the vid even played... and it’s all cartoons. Why not use real footage? Oh, cuz it would show they’re not far off giant gas balls... five hole beep beep.

What if there were just 3 fundamental forces instead of 4. And gravity was just an emergent force of time, kinda like friction. Why does gravity have to be quantum? With this said, we have a unified theory! with just 3 forces. Trijets are cool too you know!

I'd say it's pretty easy to imagine scales of that magnitude. Especially when you put it in the sense of it would take about six and a half minutes to travel around it at light speed which pretty much puts it roughly as big around o1au is long.if it takes late eight minutes to get from the surface of the sun to my eyes here on Earth then I'd say that's a very good rough imagining.

The image you see in the night sky is just a memory of what used to be, as light travels some stars die during the lights journey of many light years meaning alot of the stars you see during the night may already be dead and is simply traveling light.

@Oscar Santos and first know what you are arguing against, no not every scientist is religious, most are agnostic or athiest, and most religious ones are actually islamic, and the big bang didnt start from nothing, the big bang was the expansion of space time, not matter and maybe not even the building blocks for existence, but we are the only planet with lice we have found so we wont know until we find it, using yes thats right, science and proven fact

Interesting video. Just to make a point here: If something in science “breaks the rules a little bit,” then your rules/assumptions are wrong or incomplete. If your theory of Star formation cannot include these exceptions into the present rule, then present rule is not correct. It may be our best guess, which is fine, I don’t know better myself. But then present it as such. Don’t present it as a hard fact.
