    How absolutely fascinating! Thank You, Anton. You inspire thought, which inspires us all.

  3. MicroClases

    centaur aliens have nothing to do with horses, a common misconception

  4. zerooskul

    2:30 Exactly what was in my head.
    Carl Sagan called Phoebe a “Potato Shaped World” in the original Cosmos, talking to an elementary school class.

  5. Maghil Vannan M

    Lol when I read active I had different thing in my mind

  6. Ahmad Al

    Best Anton🌺🙏

    *googles roman empire military hierarchy*

    ahh yes….interesting…

  8. Animation Station mtg

    I always stop and like this little handsome dude’s videos. (:

  9. ronlof

    I love when the centaurs get more attention!!

  10. MoltenCheese

    The alien probe’s reactivated.

  11. Johnny Graz

    I’ve been playing too many MMOs lately. I was expecting a totally different video.

  12. Venkata Ramana

    They are becoming comets probably because the universe is getting hotter (earlier video). Btw, Play speed: 0.9x is good.

  13. The Memes of Destruction

    I like horses! ^.^

  14. Bruno Veras Ferreira

    That part about colision reminded me of the last season of The Expanse. No spoilers about how, but that’s exactly what happens.

  15. Directorix

    The impossible explanation would be an engine. An object trapped inside.

    I hope for possible explanations soon.

  16. irock ireckon

    I’ll take it that Haley’s comet is just a regular comic it comes by ever 70 or 80 years just wondering if it’s a special rock or not

  17. Justin Carnes

    We think it’s a comet, but really it’s just a massive rocket being sent to finish off 2020 with a bang.

  18. zerooskul

    2:30 Exactly what was in my head.

  19. Sash Crouch

    Hi Anton. U wonderful person ♡^_^

  20. Orodon Kassa

    I’m getting The Expanse vibes 🙌🏽

  21. Ethan Taylor

    when i saw this video idk why but my mind immediately went to… “wtf an old centaur upper stage just re lit by its self or something?…ALIENS?” was slightly disappointed it was about rocks

  22. Nate D.

    Aliens, definitely aliens……lol

  23. Todd Boothbee

    Again, life extension better get going if I’m going to be around in 10 million years.

  24. heisag

    Perhaps something else just bumped into it , causing a bit of heatup and a chainreaction of some sort.

  25. ACR_master

    hello wonderful petrov

  26. Robert Chase

    Lose “… in other words …” — just say “uhh” if you need to pause.

  27. The Keeper

    Its simple;
    Its trying to reach us before 2020 is over…

  28. Betty O

    I like how you mention in every other video, ” Don’t worry, we’re pretty sure it’s not going to hit us”. You are so comforting.

  29. Dj Phyzk

    Could charged material coming in on the galactic current sheet ‘activate’ these bodies??

  30. Charles Bonanno

    And l quote … “THAT’S NO MOON!” ;)

  31. Locadio Marcucco

    Thank you wonderful Anton, that was especially interesting.

  32. Valter Kaugust

    I for one welcome oure future alien overlords.

  33. Ms. Knowledge ALL

    Anton, I get captured by you talking about the universe. No disrespect to you but your amaze me. I love men with brains 🧠

  34. I may have issues, howeve

    Hey Anton! I love your content and the way present it! Also, I have to say how awesome it is to see most of your vids don’t have ad breaks like so many other channels do. Thank you for your dedication and wonderful presentation! Sincerely, a wonderful person ☆☆

  35. Bitchslapper316

    I wonder how many orbital bodies were captured from other solar systems or interstellar space.

  36. Oat lord

    Whoa whoa did that chart show centaurs bigger than Mars? Surely not?

    Edit: OK I see, confused me when I saw it earlier in video.

  37. Apee Himalaya Chand

    May be human activities in outer space making solar-warming

  38. El Guiñolo

    It’s a horse with a human bust in place of its head.

  39. Zack Turner


    oh no . . . ive heard that one before

  40. Lady of the Woods

    Getting a lot of strange videos on my own. Strange stuff and beings up there . Thanks Anton

  41. Rando Karatajev

    “For *unkown reason*…. But what is it?” XD xD well no point in watching this one if the reason is unknown

  42. Airbus A380

    3:07 hmmm i thought the fire and stuff was caused by friction when entering the Earths atmosphere.

  43. Real Dixon

    That’s a space station!

  44. Stephen Thomas

    “Mars is bright tonight.”

  45. Richard S

    I would say, being a comet is just a property which every asteroid has to a certain degree as soon at it gets closer to a heat or radiation source. That “degree of cometiveness” depends on the abundance of loose material or ice on the surface. Objects closer to the sun might have already lost that loose surface material over time.

  46. periurban

    Every time we take a closer look at the universe it behaves in ways we could not have predicted. Which makes me wonder why the hell we bother!

  47. General.E.Shady

    Hello wonderful Anton, and all wonderful people :)
    Space…the final frontier. This is our journey, to try to figure out wtf is going on out there!!!!
    Boggles the mind……

  48. The Caribou

    Honestly, sometimes I think all of his vids r fake/fluff as he puts out so much content when there shouldnt be this much for space lol

  49. ran n

    Can we use an object that going to be ejected from the solar system as a carrier ?

  50. Specules Gorgoth

    Could this have anything to do with the sun. It just reversed polarity.

  51. Vaskatawa

    Love your videos Anton , love from france <3

  52. D H

    December 21st new age begins… 2160 years

  53. Tobi Uchiha

    Whenever I see Anton I always hope he announces an alien civilization discovery.

  54. dtruque

    Fun fact: The name “centaur” comes from their dual classification as an asteroid and as a comet (Centaurs in Greek mythology are half-man half-horse creatures).

  55. AntonymicallyCorrect

    Another “surprise” discovery that is left unexplained by by a flawed model that cannot make predictions, whereas the electric universe theory predicts and explains this phenomenon

  56. The Big Picture

    Sentinels, watching, studying then disappear to report.

  57. J Hearld

    The one object to hit earth that would catch us off guard… The Centaur.

  58. Johnny Riviera

    Love your channel anton…..
    I’m still convinced Jupiter is a failed star.

  59. offPlanet

    It’s 2020 – this is a Berserker Probe set to laser us out of existence.

  60. Florin Pandele

    “Scientific” explaination:”it’s the horse in it coming to the surface”. Let’s hope it’s not planning to _ram_ us.

  61. Robert DoneRight

    Anton: ….moving through charged areas of “space” – different charges of ions in different areas of the solar winds.

  62. Silas Dense

    Never heard of these.
    Thanks for another great video Anton.

  63. Peter D_law

    What is this red straight lines on the photo 0:30

  64. Jade Louise Tidman

    I definitely speak for all of us when I say this but…. We love you Anton!

  65. Tadhg O'Sullivan

    How do we know it’s a centaur? From this distance it could just be a horse.

  66. Jay

    “Mr. Dalliard, we’ve been activated!”

  67. Specules Gorgoth

    He needs a crazy scientist hairdo.

  68. Andrew900460

    I bet if we extracted material from one of these interstellar objects, we’ll find some really crazy shit! Material from outside the solar system, you never know what we will find!

  69. U2Bvisie

    i’m packing my bags to greenland xD

  70. Anirban Chakrabarti

    That’s the egg that will spawn Cthulu

  71. Baahcuse Gamer

    Chiron, first cousin to Khyron the Backstabber.

  72. Emerald Avenger Gaming

    I 100% thought this video was about Alpha Centauri when I saw the title. I thought we had made contact with aliens or something

  73. Francois Leveille

    If Anton wants to show he is a scientific kind of guy, he should put on t-Shirts from The Expanse instead of Star Wars.

  74. Jason F

    Anton: “Hello wonderful person!”
    Me: *Looks behind me*
    Oh… you mean that I’m ‘full of wonder’ which is why I can’t stop clicking on you tube videos.

  75. Just Vienna

    Im ashamed that i just now found about Centaurs

  76. Plocký


  77. Xan Ostler

    Hey someone in here accidentally clicked the “dislike” button

  78. Cameron Vessey

    The nice thing about mining Centours is they travel closer to your out post so you can unload cargo and fill up on gas !!

  79. Gerrie

    Hello Wonderful Anton :o)

  80. BlackPhoenix Family

    The kuiper belt, and the gas giants of our Solar System, are the bane of Klendathu and the bugs attempts to wipe us out……Chiron is their last hope!

  81. dick buster

    Please let a giant asteroid hit earth. This would be humanities salvation

  82. Gamer X

    Imagine the Romans hearing this, “Jupiter and Saturn are throwing Centaurs at us”

  83. Alexander Norman

    Question: What causes objects to crash into planets?
    Answer: Gravity

    There you go, Anton…

  84. Simon The Sorcerer

    I bet one day these centaurs are going to be chocked fulla space pirates.

  85. ᠯᡠᠪᡵᡳ ᠮᠠᡳᠯᠠᠰᡠᠨ

    The word “centaur” triggers PTSD responses for me from Fallout 3

  86. TheGordo1996

    Like any other object, it became a “comet” due a change in its electrical environment.

  87. Elvira Canaveral

    “Ka`epaoka’awela “ oh come on you gotta try to say it! Nobody is gonna care if you biff it! We can make it into a Disney style song to help!

  88. Julian Fejzo

    I’m a simple person, I see our wonderful Anton and I put like

  89. Oat lord

    Uh oh, it’s reacting to Nibiru or whatever it’s called.

  90. PhantomHalf

    Hello wonderful person

  91. HMan

    Could be heat coming from radioactive decay inside them maybe…

  92. Korra Fey

    If one impacts us would it leave an epicentaur?

  93. Dan S

    Hopefully our solar system bouncer Jupiter gets rid of any trouble makers

  94. Mark Fergerson

    Astronomers: “Yes, large rocks have struck the Earth in the past but we know were they all are and we”re safe for the next few thousand/million years.”
    Also Astronomers: “Oh, by the way- some Centaurs are big enough to cause total extinction events, and have unpredictable orbits.”

  95. Electric Messiah

    Sounds like the protomolecule is getting ready to form a gateway.

  96. berndbuchholz

    Bug Activity in the Outer Solar System… Send in the Troopers….

  97. avonacolyte

    Aliens. I’m calling it now.

  98. Dana Downing

    If I don’t lose the weight I gained during lockdown, I’m going to need a Kuiper Belt to hold up my pants.

  99. berk404

    This is a more-than-4-words comment to support our hero Anton

  100. TayZonday

    I’m going “Centaur? Isn’t there already a horse’s body with a human torso in the Zodiac?”
