    actually, a sci-fi book had shown that the Milky Way galaxy had sucked up several smaller galaxies, and that they had different movements.

  2. wzardglick

    I just received my T shirt. Very nice!

  3. Joshua A Martin

    is there anything behind THE BOOTES VOID??? like with bubble extra deep field???

  4. Cosmo Genesis

    Might be an old bloke, but it still likes to be where the action is!

  5. John Cartwright

    Thanks for the fascinating video Anton.

  6. Daniel Jones

    Clicked to see what they dug up.

  7. Bram Moerman

    Would the cause of spiral galaxies be the result of the momentum of the collisions? Could we assume that an elliptical galaxy has not (yet) collided with another?


    That is happening way too soon for me.

  9. xrm160xqw

    how many galaxies the milky way has actually eaten ? gaia sausagw, sagittarius, major canis and now this one ? we live in really hungry galaxy

  10. Mile High Immortal

    Now they need to look past the center to the other side. The great attractor, what the he’ll is it, a massive black hole?

  11. literaltrance

    I’ll take two gaia sausage please. :3

  12. larry jackson

    I think there may be other things at play here too that could answer this.

  13. Graviton Thongs

    I wonder how many intermediate size black holes are in the bulge???

  14. Nyarlathotep

    So. Our galaxy is a predatory mass, prowling the universe seeking smaller galaxies to devour. Rawwr.

  15. Henry Warwick

    something weird with your audio on this one. Too much compression? Or some kind of a gate turned up too much?

  16. thesadunicorn

    I love that Helmi means a pearl in Finnish. Those Helmi streams are like pearl necklaces.

  17. CyFr's Corner

    Gaia-sausage galaxy 🤣

  18. Ben Liu

    Does that mean there’s also a super massive black hole in that area that may or may not have been absorbed by our galaxy’s own core yet?

  19. JTuaim

    What a strange circumstance we exist in.
    Anton scares me sometimes. But I’m glad he’s doing it. Iognorance is only blissful until reality cones knocking.

  20. Alejandro Tkaczevski

    Something is weird with your microphone. Sounds like comb filtering .

  21. oOo Gimmy

    It seems to me something difficult to prove … the causes could also be other.

  22. Rocks Cousteau

    Another AWESOME video Anton. I love watching your uploads while I wait for mine to upload. You are a bright spot in the Youtube Universe. This is one of the BEST channels on Youtube hands down. Thank You for all your hard work. Merry Christmas

  23. Candi Eye Studio

    Hello wonderful Anton, great content as always! Dislikers are obviously flat earthers! Frickin morons!! Keep it up mate, I appreciate your vlogs 😉😍

  24. Laiba Gul

    Sausage galaxy sounds delicious..

  25. FUG Slayer Nominee

    Hi Anton, how about a video on latest study suggesting twist in light in cosmic background radiation violating parity symmetry.

  26. Pavith Salinda

    8:02 that smile lol

  27. Kgkbuugj

    Bruh I thought they found a space dinasor🤦🏽‍♂️

  28. Damien

    Could u see around up/down the full galaxy using a grav lense effect from high mass stars-black holes?

  29. Mark Hatch

    The rate at which we are accumulating data about our universe keeps increasing exponentially. Never a better time to become interested in astronomy.

  30. Joonas Hannila

    Damn your channel has grown a lot.. Nice, do many wonderful people!

  31. Ajosra Last Name

    Hello wonderful wonton

  32. antwan1357

    I hope when I die they can shoot me off into space with a beacon sending pictures back to earth of how far my body is traveling across the galaxy.

  33. Robert Emmet

    Thanks again, Anton. Good stuff.

  34. Dylan Drinks Water

    Thank you for revealing the new information without the sensationalism of science journals
    Quality stuff like this if few and far between these days

  35. Drew Young

    How do you date stars in center of milky way with accuracy? I am lost how this is done with light spectrum.


    A collision ten million years ago and I bet the galactic insurance co. inc. still has not settled the claims.

  37. Anima Videography

    Your prolific content isne er less than fascinating Anton… 👍🙏

  38. mofal

    Thank you for making these videos on a consistent basis, they always brighten my week. I appreciate the range of topics, So many YouTube channels just focus on one or two things

  39. kevgermany

    I thought from the title that they found a dinosaur bone.
    Thanks for the update.

  40. Anaryl

    We love you Anton, yewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

  41. arno kosterman

    😍 in this streams i saw the same behaviure as the pre embrio stade of the egg en the spurm😍🙏💜
    Around the time it is nesteling

  42. James Kirk

    Love your videos, but you should really try another phrase besides “in other words”.

  43. jz

    So we’re the offspring of a cannibal?

  44. Vinay Kumar

    Thank you Anton, I have asked for this video and been waiting for this. Thank you….

  45. Keith and Natani

    Lol when they figure out its like a root sytem bu backwards

  46. Sosuk

    Hi Anton, can I send you a test of your voice equalized and mastered? It’s an easy process that enchance your audio a lot!

  47. cyclops centurion

    They can’t even tell us what happened during the election. How can they know what happened 10 billion years ago?

  48. Jeffrey Packer

    Makes me think it is panspermia on the galactic scale.

  49. Thomas Burick

    Anton is the best :) I love his videos. Very high quality content that’s in sharp contrast to so much of the sub-par stuff that’s posted. Thank you Anton!

  50. Chad Cuckmaker

    The center with all the stars? As oppose to the other center? Lol

    -the not wonderful person

  51. Steve Sloan

    Blimey those interaction images you showed made me think of up and down spins.🤓🇦🇺🤜🏼🤛🏼🍀🍀🍀😎

    Maybe space is not all the same, but the same physics.

  52. Eduard Tronciu

    Imagine there is sentient life on a planet, around a star in the stelar stream. What a wonderful night sky they must have! Seeing almost whole of the milky way 🌌 !

  53. Murdered Carrot

    It would be cool if earth was in one of those streams that stretch out of the Galaxy, I, think. Visually any way!

  54. Low Waste, High Melanin

    So fascinating! I can’t wait to learn what else they find as they study this further

  55. Gaurav Khare

    Couldn’t understand scientists, so God sent us Anton🙏🏻

  56. Gerrie

    Hello Wonderful Anton :o)

  57. Keith and Natani

    We could be microorganisms that dreamed of having things we have today so we could prevent the pain of tomorrow

  58. Sosuk

    Hi Anton, can I send you a test of your voice equalized and mastered? It’s an easy process that enchance your audio a lot!

  61. Mellow Fellow

    The Milky Way has not…. RELEASED THE KRAKEN!

  62. Don

    Thank you, wonderful person.

  63. Osmosis Jones

    Wonder if our solar system was swept up from another Galaxy

  64. Alfred Sutton

    Thank you Anton. Best story you’ve done recently, and that’s saying a lot.

  65. AwesomeSauce

    Anton are you ok, it looks like you have some swelling going on on your right cheek? I hope no tooth problems. If yes I hope you get well fast!

  66. OldGamerNoob

    looking at the colision simulation that keeps replaying here, it does seem to confirm to me that galactic arms tend to form in colisions

  67. Judy S

    I’d like to know how they determine the age of these things. Unbelievable.

  68. sea gall

  69. Bram Moerman

    “In the. Milky Way, unlike other galaxies”. . . if ever there was a red flag statement. I very much doubt that the Milky Way is particularly exceptional in the realm of galaxies. . .

  70. Warren Bamesberger

    Anton, Quality note: it sounded like you might be overdriving Your mic a little. Remember to check levels before recording.

  71. CyFr's Corner

    I might have come here late, or exactly when I was supposed to in order to hear Anton say hello wonderful person.

  72. Wardie Leppan

    Anton, you wonderful person, I just love your videos. Amazingly informative and clear plus I love having the attached academic papers.

  73. Beta Bandits

    I had no idea there were so many galactic collisions in our galaxy’s history….amazing!

  74. Jonathon G

    We should call it the caramel Galaxy cuz it collided with the center of the Milky Way

  75. LapisSea

    I love talking about galactic bulges OwO

  76. Northern Judge

    Imagine if our spirit can go around the universe and create galaxies like Star Wars or 40k


    The Milky Way has a lot of skeletons in the closet.

  78. Travi M

    Gaia Sausage galaxy. I want to live there.

  79. Shonda Sistertinawoman

    I can’t say it enough! Thank you so much for bringing such wonderful information to us.

  80. Essex121514

    Always a pleasure Anton.

  81. K̸͟͞y̸͟͞l̸͟͞e̸͟͞ D̸͟͞a̸͟͞

    I’ve ALWAYS believed EVERYTHING Anton says, but I can’t get behind “The Gaia Sausage” galaxy… You made that s$%t up… 🤣💀

  82. luket1017

    It’s amazing how we can observe and learn all this information while being limited to earth very cool thanks for sharing

  83. Iaman Empoweredone

    Makes me wonder how many times this world has been created and destroyed? Countless civilizations have come and gone.

  84. MC's Creations

    And we still should have a few more collisions ahead. 😬

  85. bruinflight

    I came for the ‘wonderful person’ and I stayed for the ‘galactic fossil’

  86. Rishav Sarkar

    And now for your daily dose of comment cringe :
    Not sure if the Milky Way was a THOT or a Serial Cannibal Killer.

  87. Daryl Henry

    This channel is like the news but for astronomical discoveries. Each day I look forward to finding out what new discovery has been made.

  88. FloatingSpark

    I’m too early for the immanent “beautiful bulge” comments, I’ll be back later :p

  89. Omni Versal

    Some times billion years later that will be us.

  90. Adrian

    i was expecting a real fossil 😂

  91. CX32

    Amazing to see something in the sky that may no longer exist.

  92. Aurinkohirvi

    The nightsky must be amazing from a solar system in the halo, with the view into the whole of Milky Way.

  93. Majic Lamp

    The acceleration of the discoveries as technology advances apace, is exciting to see.

  94. Chester Popham Production

    Just think there could be someone in the Andromeda galaxy studying our milky way and learning about their home galaxy.

  95. Srikanth Tupurani

    The thing which gives maximum happiness is imagining we travelling to some remote place in the cosmos.

  96. Bhojinderpal Singh

    Calling these events ‘collisions’ might be a misnomer, shouldn’t they be called mergers?
    Thanks for bringing latest discoveries tonus!

  97. Sethan Dotts

    I just wanna thank you for fueling my interest in astronomy over the past 6 years, thank you!

  98. zac fyt

    milky way galaxy be like: “i raised in the streets, yo!”

  99. Nick B

    I love the fact that there are channels like Anton’s available to us…

  100. FuturisticHub

    When I die I hope i’d be able to for the rest of my afterlife go around and visit the universe with other fellow spirits and have a great time
