  1. Kenny Omg

    So… can we see alien cow farts?

  2. Werli

    4:44 damn that molecule thicc

  3. Forty Nine

    I can hear tiredness in your voice Anton.

  4. Janusz O.

    Hello Anton. Nice to see you in the morning: Nice start of the week. Hope you’re doing well! Stay safe.

  5. Nesy

    *Atmosphere pollution: So now I am an alien to you?*

    *everyone: yes*

  6. FooFoo

    I’m pretty sure if we find alien life
    The goverment would censor it until we find out its completely true

  7. Wases AB

    I just want to point this out: Anton, you are very naive sometimes (mainly when talking about china)

  8. Lane Dexter

    Technosignatures: what about the flashes of nuclear detonations?

  9. Cheryl Taylor

    They’re going to find us before we find them.

  10. ExcessiveOutdoors

    damn, Nitrogen Dioxide lookin dummy thicc

  11. H. H.

    7:00 100 or so “Earth-like” planets. I’m just thinking about the fact that the term “Earth-like” can mean a lot of different things.

  12. Hochspitz Leonbergers

    I really enjoy these easy to understand lessons. Sabine also does a great job with her explanations. Are we only looking at carbon/oxygen based possible alien life? Could there be something really more alien, silicon/chlorine based?

  13. Ryan Heinrick

    ::wakes up from nap:: ::records YouTubes video about alien technosignatures::

  14. Half-a-Gram Stan

    I knew it was aliens.

  15. Colin Willette

    How are you Anton I hope you are doing well my friend God bless

  16. Albert Brown

    What was that intro man? Are you ok?

  17. nunya

    So we’re looking for polluted planets.

  18. Will Stack

    Anton, really love your videos, they are just right ! Thanks.

  19. chris kiser

    That was a really good video thanks for all ur hard work i look forward to ur videos every day

  20. James Aron

    Wonderful alien choking atmospheric pollution

  21. LittleRainGames

    Who ever made omuamua brown was definitely farting around.

  22. James Collins

    Technosignatures: Discovery of sine waves that follow the Boom-Tisk pattern

  23. Ruben Cordoba

    @whatdamath are you sick? You sound like you’re struggling.

  24. Milo Menzies

    Let’s ruin our atmosphere so if anyone is looking they can find us! Wait we already did that.

  25. Little Mr Pinkness

    I feel the day coming closer…..

  26. R.I.P_Ma_Dawg guice

    if they have the ability to create their own gravitational field, then they would be able to bypass leaving any signature that they were here.

  27. John Irby

    You had me until you said the “Chinese Government was not aware of them”.

  28. David Hinkle

    Do aliens fart?

  29. L N

    Helllooooo Anton. Check out The Real Jimmy Roberts!. Very cool stufg

  30. Paisley Wood

    I really believe that there is life outside earth, no question

  31. Davidsmith smith

    *Meanwhile on an alien planet………….*
    Alien: “There is no way something can live with all that water”

  32. Tony Torres

    Bed hair!

  33. A Youtube Channel

    Your assuming aliens ‘pollute’ the only planet, or one of the planets they use for the sake of survival for their entire species.

  34. Lasha Martashvili

    Everything is relative, as uncle Albert said. To me, atmospheric pollution is a sign of presence of unintelligent life.

  35. Sam

    Anton #1

  36. Roger Kreil

    The odds are that they wouldn’t be at the polluting stage or they would be way past it just like radio signals.

  37. Delta Temple

    Wish I found this channel sooner. Truly quality content.

  38. Bill Kruger

    If atmospheric polution signatures indicated there were “moties” on the planet, it would be a good place to steer clear of.

  39. Andre B.

    If I look at the star the image I see are very old, in some case millions of years old, is it the same thing if I use a telescope ? If Nasa find trace of a technological specie will it be still alive ?

  40. Richardvargas8

    The aliens are already here……

  41. Anderson Galvao

    James Webb telescope will be a great asset in this sense.

  42. Guuver Unleashed

    what if said aliens have already reached a technological stage where theyve cleaned their planet?

  43. Holly W

    Do we really want to make contact with another species of being that is busy destroying their breathable air?

  44. Francisco Pagan

    Possible extraterrestrial life: Dyson spheres, megastructures, NO2 in the atmosphere as industrial waste. The latter did not know. And if someday possible life is detected, please, let’s not try to communicate with them. (I know that because of the distances it may be impossible). Lest it happen to us like in the movie Independence Day!

  45. - tangdao

    or intelligent-made a-bomb detonation, they might be fighting for war, who knows

  46. John Matthias

    It would be ironic if we found alien life by detecting the same gases that we’re using to kill ourselves.

  47. Lea Chase-Haller

    Hello, wonderful Anton! With the increase in rocket launches, what if any, pollution problems do you see related to space travel for our planet? BTW: I’ve started sharing your videos with my teenage grandson & daughter, they are both very interested in exploring space and astronomy.

  48. Frank Ligas

    Thanks for the video. NO^2 can also be produced in great quantities if a planet is hit by a gamma ray burst. The best technosignatures are short lived radio isotopes.

  49. Gerrie

    Hello Wonderful Anton :o)

  50. That Auto Garage

    This is an interesting approach considering that alien life could develop in a entirety different direction than what humans have.

  51. Vincent Cleaver

    I thought pollution was waste and by definition waste from a civilization

  52. BattonFive

    Genuinely surprised its took this long to look for pollution on other planets :-)

  53. Kyles Isler

    *Insert Daft Punk joke here*

  54. Peter Frazier

    Great video. Impressive update on the topic.

  55. james cardinal

    but i though oumuamua was found to have a reflectivity signature that could most likely be produced by an unnaturally smooth surface ? ? ?

  56. DESP 117

    China promising something is like say that usa havent done any intervention in x poor country xD

  57. Chamat Spray Art

    Anton, have a coffee and wake up a bit first mate; u look knackered…. lol… Legend…

  58. Joe Arnold

    I don’t know that I want to find aliens if it turns out they’re no smarter than us, polluting their planet and all

  59. Ernest Worrell

    Hey Anton, what do you think about CE5?

  60. Joshua Dawg

    Build a giant sphere structure that glows super bright green an have it orbit earth there are no green lights in space so that’s my idea lol

  61. TayZonday

    How long can detectable atmospheric pollution sustain itself? We might not have more than 250 or so viable years as an industrial fossil-fuel powered civilization. That’s the blink of an eye in cosmic time.

  62. David Gifford Sr.

    Don’t know where else to ask, but I have always had a problem being told this or that could have been caused by a passing star.
    My question is if anything in our solar system had interacted with a passing star, in a realistic timeline, where would said star be now? Do we have evidence a passing star could have been going so fast we could not find it now? Thanks

  63. Blossom Joseph

    Maybe they see what type of neighbors we are and dont want to meet us

  64. Benjamin De Baerdemaeker

    You should check out LASCO :) and start asking questions

  65. 巨人の肩


  66. Arman Lindayag

    Walang alien..

  67. leper1

    Hello wonderful Anton

  68. ceej

    Someday the earth is going to be like Coruscant ☠️

  69. Bassotronics

    I think Anton just woke up and started making the video. Lol
    He started so low key and tired.

  70. Ozan

    3:35 CFC does not occur naturally, as far as we know.

  71. Jan Kärema

    You do good work. I know because your bedhair tells it.

  72. Franko Walker

    In other words, Don’t hold your breath. :)

    Seriously though, Nice work Anton. Very informative as usual.

  73. mr. creosote

    anton petrov, phosphane on venus got recently debunked, update your information

  74. Stan Szeto

    Spock: Judging by the pollution content of the atmosphere i believe we have arrived at the latter half of the 20th century.

  75. Galaxia

    Thanks Anton!

  76. Simon Harris

    “China has promised to crack down on the illegal use of CFC’s” yeah just like the wet markets and endageroured animal trade! Having said that sulphur hexafluoride is still very much in use worldwide.

  77. Aymen Dridi

    I’m alien and I like chicken wings 😅😂😂

  78. Janne Wolterbeek

    I love how wonderful person Anton can do a genuine deep dive in 10 minutes, wow!

  79. vikingscott

    Always great videos!

  80. will2see

    When it comes to 1I/’Oumuamua, it is time to admit that Loeb’s et. al model best explains and fits all the observed data and anomalies.

  81. CMDRm

    And could aliens have detected our nuclear tests? Lol

  82. Only1Vonny

    I’m not saying its aliens…
    But its atmosphere..

  83. Stutz Stutzman

    New Event Horizons has taken over!

  84. Phillip Gonzales

    Thank you wonderful person. Enjoyed the wonderful hair combing edit 1:28

  85. Snippy Cutwell

    look for thc thats the planet I want to go to….

  86. Ruhlov Nikita

    Спасибо большое за контент

  87. Commish/Flock Baltimore p

    It almost sounded like you found alien life with pollution in the title.

  88. Ronald H

    Anton has bedhead today but he’s a Wonderful person! Love the videos!

  89. Neptune Carlson

    All your videos are so dang cool thank you for making such informative and interesting content!

  90. Advertiser Commerce

    Awesome update!

  91. Aliens101

    You good? You look really tired

  92. Mike Laffoon

    “I’m an Allien,” says Woody Allen.

  93. E-Frame

    Heyhey Anton, I noticed that in the video today you had a few edit “pop” sounds that are very unpleasant to hear when having a headset on :) Try to identify where in your workflow that happens – usually a short 3-5 frames soft blend is often enough to overally fix any editing sound issues :)

  94. John Richardson

    Anton Petrov … Can we do something similar with regards to Methane, from Cows; Sulfur from Hot Springs, and Nuclear Meltdown?

    Filtrations Systems: VIA Clam population
    Cedar Tree Terraformation
    Incomapleux (Inland Temperate Rainforests)

  95. Mikkel Siegenfeldt

    If YouTube were a thing when I went to early school, the science classes would have been much more fun

  96. Marnix

    Im your biggest dutch fan😍

  97. R.E.M. Fan

    Here to boost the algorithm

  98. Ahsoka Tano

    That thumbnail looked like if Coruscant was cracked in half

  99. Francisco Pagan

    Anton: Very interesting marvelous person!

  100. Lars Richards

    Dear Anton, your video’s are amazing. You’re making science beautifull an cool! You are one of the most wonderfull persons ever!
