    • Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell omgg univers will die 😱😱😱 what I have to do .. oh I will be dead in that time 😅

    • I know its latr but Big bang pls

    • I believe there is one idea that we can adjust to the “heat death”. Why not just create our own star.

    • Where you on Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

  • nice védio

  • Beyond our imagination

  • I have watched this like 10 times because the music is pretty cool

  • out of the universe there a lot of black universe it mean's there's a lot of black universe it means the universe die... we don't know yet kiyamat it mean hari kiyamat we all will die and the Universe will die to after the Universe die, Allah will fix back on the dead Universe Allah SAW will fix back that dead Universe it mean... the Universe is already repair the Universe will start over, over and over over and over. thank you

    • also after the universe die something after 20.00000 years the dead Universe will remove and place it back over and over and over over... about the heat death, we call it. the end of the World, that's how we call it..

  • Lol yooo whattt!! 😂😂😂 Czech is too Savage 😎

  • When the universe gets entirely dark, isn't it possible to still use energy and create light? Because energy and atoms can't simply disappear, they still have to be somewhere.

  • Just imagine how many changes and inventions the oldest person alive saw in its live. Just imagine how everything was in the 19th century and how it is now.

  • Cognitive ease

  • Your videos are so poetic, awing, dramatic and enthralling. The explanations are complexed but very well explained for beginners. And the aesthetic of your videos are gorgeous and actually cute. I really enjoy your channel and I really hope to see alot more coming from you later on . You make a splendid work.

  • Wait what if the universe is one giant life cycle?What if all this has happened before?!

  • :) I feel young now yet old at the same time

  • I'd like to see "Death from Space-Gamma Ray Burts" again

  • I would love to see the "3 Ways to Destroy the Universe" video remastered. It was the first video I saw by you guys and I loved it!

  • Mabye everything will implode and then explode for another Big Bang

  • The “end” of universe seems hypothetical than theoretical, and I wonder how could it be possible. Is it not that the universe has a finite amount of matter that is always preserved (in one way or another)? If at the “end” there will be nothing left in the universe, where had all the matter creating the universe gone? They are not going to just poof out of existence, are they?

    • Shirley Featherquill Maybe the big rip will happen,maybe the Big Crunch, maybe the big freeze, or the big change

  • I am nervous that humans will go extinct

  • i can't explain with words how much i love your videos and the animations and simply everything. PLEASE do not ever stop making these fantastic mini masterpieces Much love!

  • Damn, I wish schools watched these videos to see how precious time is and how good of a animator you are.

  • I love how at the background music you can hear a "tic tac" that resembles the seconds passing. So beautiful

    • HamLover 999 Probz to Epic Mountain

  • So life on Earth has been a thing for a third of the life of the universe? Damn

  • This makes me feel meningless and humble, but it also makes me feel like I can shape this Earth with a movement of my hand

  • I'm watching this looking for ideas for my next song. Thanks

  • Don't hate on dank memes

  • >9/11 = invasion of Iraq In 2025 The US will be attacked by Russia and they will invade Spain in retaliation.

  • well, while heat death is the most probable death... there's always a chance gravity will overtake dark matter someday and there will be a new big bang? a small chance, but possible? it pays to be optimistic.

  • ty

  • Columbus didn't discover America!!!!

  • What if there is another Big bang and the universe restarts again...Over..And over...And over....idk thats what i think...

    • zackster67 It's called the Big Bounce theory. Look it up.

  • Be quiet!! Your crossing my precious ego!! Be gone!!

  • What if the humans purpose is too expand to live in the entire universe, then too make our own stars and planets and.... life.

    • ilmu011 yup....

    • Jack West ... and then perish in the Heat Death stage....

    • lol that's some "Starlord's dad from guardians of the galaxy vol.2" shit right there

  • Imagine if we had another human species still alive today, I wonder how different they would be... what if we ended up putting them in a zoo or something.

  • Could we potentially prevent heat death by forming stars through some hyper advanced technology? Possibly creating stars of our own? Also could you guys please do a video on the construction of theoretical ringworlds?

    • ilmu011 Which is why we would start this process before all the energy drained, and then used energy from the stars we formed. Energy cannot be created or destroyed. Thus there is no possible way for all the energy in the galaxy to simply disappear completely.

    • John Rambo You need energy to form stars. In a universe where energy is draining, one day there will be no energy left to work with.

    • ilmu011 But as I was saying if we could form stars, couldn't we prevent the cooling of the universe?

    • John Rambo You yourself are bound to the heat death stage. All energy will drain. You cannot escape.

  • Beautiful. The prime example of quality over quantity.

  • im 18

  • Why do i keep rewatching your vids

  • Allah made everything

  • This totally makes sense The dinosaurs died then they ruled the earth LMAO!!!!!!

    • Iced What? Stegosaurus went extinct, bur dinosaurs still existed. Homo erectus also went extinxt, but you are still here, aren't you?

  • Reminds me of my greatest nightmare.. NOTHINGNESS

  • such a great video!

  • Beautiful advice at the end. It's all gonna be over some day. But what really matters is that microscopic strip in that timeline. Live it!

  • I can’t look at the world the same anymore knowing that all our inventions and innovation and any other life in the universe are completely pointless... It is also a thing which ends up becoming nothing even if it’s unlimited

  • Wait...arbitrarily set the year 1? This isn’t correct. AD used to stand for “Anno Domini” or “After Christ”...

  • celino jaramillo, who is mentioned in the video as the oldest person alive, died a few days after this video was released.

  • bill wurtz did it better


  • every time i watch some thing that makes me think about life.... im not trying to be mean but..... my tummy hurts when this happens and im 12 yrs. old like who will know if another universe like ours will come!

  • I don’t like this universe is dead / last star theory because if the universe keeps expanding infinitely this won’t happen not too mention that energy cannot be created or destroyed meaning humans could artificially keep the universe alive with future advancement

  • I thought that human civilization can live to less than a million years, but if dinosaurs survived about 165 million years (plus they didn't construct skyrockets, etc. to survive - what we can), then humanity can exist more than 165 milion years wtf will we remind people at all?

  • why do we need school when we got kurzgesasgt (that was a long name)

  • so this is all about asking the girl out....nice...

  • Everything is Dead.... forever Then after long years of darkness, a new explosion occurs, marking a new cycle of life once more. Perhaps, it isn't dead forever, but instead mark of the end of that specific cycle or universe. Just a theory.

  • Man the Universe is a patient son of a bitch, I was getting mad because this page took a little while to load

  • So basically if I fuck up nobody will care since We're just an insignificant part of history. Great!

  • tldr nothing we do matters

  • At the end of every thing we may be so advanced we can make stars and planets and More

  • Who tf disliked this

  • Can we have an interactive version of this?

  • It's like Felipe Castanhari's animation


  • wow

  • Wow! When you really sit down, and understand this, time really is big! Productiveness keeps getting faster and quicker like an exponential growth. We may be stuck with our current technology which is booming but a thousand years from now who knows what'll be invented?

  • So, relating to this video, social media is a bad thing. I TOTALLY agree.

  • Make a brand new sun the second

  • remaking an entire video to add an "or boy" at the end. good video, though

  • This channel is frightening and exciting. I love it!!

  • this really opens your eyes to how destructive humans are... animals have been here for millions and millions of years before us, yet in our short existence, we have managed to damage so much of our earth and other species which have ruled this planet long before us.

  • The music for this is used in so many other videos

  • What is the Galaxy edge?

  • *I wish you’d make videos every day....*

  • Evolution never happened.Then were some monkeys left as monkeys.

  • You do know energy can't be destroyed right?

  • Asking a girl to come out with me is more complicated than the history of our world💔

  • No one born in 2001 I now is 18


  • i feel inspiredand scared, what is it called

  • ? What about ancient structures that are older than 10,000 years

  • This is was one of my favorite videos, thank you!

  • Majority of the people watching this video still believe that they have fallen from the sky 5000 years ago! 😂

  • My favorite video right here

  • In A Nutshell = Space Depressing Videos And Funny Jokez

  • This is so extremely amazing I’m so shook

  • no god created the universe

  • When you said "The usual stuff"I suddenly remembered something, but I forgot tho

  • The Sims came before Wikipedia *MY LIFE IS A LIE*

  • How can birds do all these cool things?

  • When your Emo friend says “we all die” after watching this video

  • The good news is you will be dead by then, unless we somehow get the technology to transfer our consciousness in the next 100 years

  • the further back you "go" and the further out the wronger you are, unsuspecting just how much your imagination betrays all essence, but full of confidence "13,75 B yrs ago the universe was born" ... says who doesn't understand its nature ...and then "the universe will turn dark", well, boohoo, it's mostly dark already ...don't gobble down all science books from Hogwarts, all the hogwash you can mumble, utter and stutter in big chunks of ignorance, the latest gobbledegook like said omnipresent fairy tale of a "Big Bang" that never was, for ever and ever, til kingdom come, in the form of the next smart idea to tell you how it all really was and is, gosh ...i's about time (someone did) "even black holes will evaporate and die" ...is a sentence you should put up right next to all tales of the almighty Bejeepus and his virgin mother

    • I'm saying: it's infinite, ever changing, unfolding in dualities relative to your and my limited senses. What we try to live up to is more of an emulation of (y)our next best textbook whereas what we truly live in or, really, what truly lives in us is so much more than that, basically, reality is boundless ...and it's not like "everything" would be expanding or collapsing, exploding or going dark, it just is and doesn't give the slightest damn about some borderlining mathemagics.

    • So your saying the creation of the universe is fake and we live in a simulation where we don’t have a god of our world and we’re just a projection made to experiment our lives... I’d say they made a video on this too but idk

  • So like on eath is basically 1/7 the length of the entire universe? wHoAoAaoAOoaAh

    • My face is the antidote no it’s like... 1/10000000 of the universes life

  • I confessed to my crush because of this video

  • Aaaaaaa you make me paranoyac universe dead really it's fright

  • After the death of the universe, Only the mighty chicken will remain 🐔.

  • But is it relee frevr?

  • I always go on a small binge on you guys' content, truely the best videos on youtube

  • tutorialssssssssssssssss please

  • Holy existential crisis

  • The idea that the universe is headed to a heat death depends entirely on theories about dark matter and dark energy - which we know absolutely nothing about, or whether they even exist. So im pretty skeptical of that prediction for the future. If the existence of dark matter isnt proved, physics will be revolutionized and the entire history of the universe rewritten.

    • ThePhilosorpheus :/ seems reasonable I guess. If it’s how heat death will work then I guess that’ll work like that

    • Glassy matter and energy arent simply "lost", the idea that the universe will disintegrate is based on the idea that it will just keep expanding, which depends on current theories about dark matter and energy (which we dont know really exist). The universe might as well deflate (big bounce theory) or change form, we dont know yet.

    • ThePhilosorpheus no that’s just the reasonable explanation. Not from dark matter or dark energy. Just that we will lose gas clouds to form stars, stars will die out, those black holes will die, then it will be pitch black

  • Time is precious. Beautiful.

  • I'm Sad but I know that it will happen every soon :]
