  1. John Little

    We could be witnessing the formation of one of the giant elliptical galaxies here

  2. Max Klein

    One should use the “Ludicrously Large Telescope” to confirm the observations.

  3. simon courtney looms

    An amazing Chanel 👏

  4. Rustam K

    Maybe some of the SMBH are created by ancient civilisations? Better than Dyson spheres)))
    No, this galaxies are too young((

  5. Winnie Gustafon

    Very interesting!

  6. arno kosterman

    Cosmic web is the same as the space betwean your cells of your boddy😍

  7. creeping death

    How are you coming up with all this new info so fast all the time is what i would like to know?
    Do you make this stuff up?

  8. Madao

    Whoever is naming these telescopes is just meming by now.

  9. High Overlord Snarffie Be

    the size of whipped prune drinks is dependent on how many days it’s been since your last bowel movement

  10. Dank Horse Gaming

    Love this guy!

  11. Joshua A Martin

    interesting information, well done

  12. Daniel Pirela

    This Black Hole should be named: J03-M4M4

  13. Tyrone Brown

    Hello Antov, best wishes!

  14. John Stevenson

    Stars die and they make new ones !!!
    makes so much sense !

  15. lakewoodbball

    How would the cosmic web funnel mass towards the BH? Also how do we see a cosmic web, seems like it would be large clusters of mass, but maybe dark matter instead? Good vid as always tho!

  16. Davide Blonda

    I really love your video Anton but i just think this tendency to see always far away from us, and spending million of dollar for very large telescope, will not bring any consistent answer for us as humanity. I just wish we could do more for planet Earth than just watching what a black hole is doing million of light years away.

  17. Flavour Month

    So we make a weapon and debate how it will effect the world around us. Now imagine an civ that creates a weapon that has effects that creates debates around how it will effect the universe around us……

  18. billiondollardan

    Wow the title of this video is incredible. I know Anton will do the topic justice and that’s why I come back every day

  19. Sagittarius A *

    I feel like an underachiever…

  20. oliver gorman

    After extremely large? This is an EU project, it’ll be the anything it takes telescope.

  21. Greg Tatum

    Video looks great, Anton. Like the new intro.

  22. David Shelton

    I am just curious how they know for sure there are 6 galaxies and not just split images of 1,2,3,4 or 5 galaxies?

  23. Peter Rabbit

    If we could figure out how to see outside of our 3-brane, it would change everything. Is there a way?

  24. Levi Owen

    I’m so grateful for your information it spreads like covid 19

  25. logan wolf

    5:20 Dude. Warning. Please.

  26. DJ k

    We love you Anton, make love to us with your words

  27. Robert Emmet

    Any idea on how big this could be present day?

  28. Rogue-Spear

    Anton thank you so much for your content. It is supreme in all senses. Absolutely brilliant work. You are a treasure.

  29. Sir Wall of Text

    From the very moment that I learned about the supermassive black holes in the center of galaxies I had wondered how they had managed to grow so huge in such a short timespan. And now that I think about it, the cosmic web effectively feeding them makes sense as a means of doing so. Thank you for sharing this with us, Anton.

  30. coweatsman

    “The Extremely Large Telescope”. What superlative name will follow on from the Large, Very Large and Extremely Large? The Hyper Super Duper Large?

  31. Ikhsan Ishak

    Mr. Anton Petrov, we want Subtitle Indonesia please..🙏😊

  32. Alfred Sutton

    Thank you, wonderful Anton.

  33. Dave L

    Bro, the hd face cam was a massive upgrade! Love the improvement and thanks for making some really complicated subjects seem almost comprehensible. You’re my favorite wonderful person on YouTube by a long shot

  34. 8cordas

    Hmm… could not the “great attractor” be one of those and the milky way be in a similar structure?

  35. Evil Otto Jr. Productions

    Your videos are still amazing but, not gonna lie, I miss the What Da Math intro

  36. glorymanheretosleep

    I love how frequent you make space news….

  37. william nicholson

    It concerns me how unimaginative scientific equipment builders are .

  38. Cory Ball

    Dude, seriously, I fell off not watching for about a week or so and I definitely felt a difference in mood. Getting to learn at least one new thing a day helps me to feel much more accomplished!

  39. MC's Creations

    Really, really interesting!!!


    It’s not me it could be effect of my shift hangover ..5:30 Verizon 👍

  41. Keith Reynolds

    I imagine the magnetic fields eminating from such immence black holes has a significant impact the plasma near by generating huge currents over many light years.

  42. phapnui

    Thank you again for excellent presentation of cosmic things.

  43. day6creation breathing

    I’m starring at my stereo.

  44. Dylan J

    Hello wonderful person back to you 👋😀 love seeing when you upload a new vid!! Thanks for keeping up the vids and doing so much hard work for us! Ik you do way more than you see just watching the vid so just know we love what you’re doing and support you all the time!! Thanks again for being boss! 😄💙

  45. Pitt

    As above so below, your study reflects the workings of the universal mind which relates to micro and macro universe from cell to nebula are similarities in functional characteristics, each time you clarify what is outside of us you also enlighten the interior workings

  46. T L S

    I can see you clearly now, the pixelation is gone. It’s gonna be a high, high, high… High def video.

  47. Hanniffy Dinn

    It’s called GREEDO! 🤯🤯🤯🤯

  48. Joshua McCarroll

    I really like this channel – simple but packed full of new and interesting info.

  49. Flavour Month

    Ty, you need to change the by by smile – just saying.
    Love your info btw – ty so much

  50. Pierre Villemaire-Brooks

    Incoming Mega-Nova ?! :-o

  51. Silas Dense

    Didn’t know about E.L.T.
    I’m looking forward to what science finds with it.
    Anothet great video.
    Any word from Devon Island?
    It would be great if they invited you.
    Thanks Anton!

  52. Chad Herbert

    Cool, makes me think of the relationship between city size and trade webs… :)

  53. LucasPerson

    I always knew there had to be something massive in the “center” of the universe lol

  54. Xenotrickster

    Wonderful person Anton! I have been watching you for a while. I love all of your content.

    Your new space has a bit of extra reverb/bass. Just letting you know. Keep up the fantastic videos!

  55. onlyonewhyphy

    Ooooh look at the video quality, this time!

  56. Giulio Barbosky

    ciao magico :)

  57. Elizabeth Leach

    Wow, the new camera makes you so crisp! 👍

  58. Dr. Wowwee

    This is a incredible discovery! I never would have fathomed in my wildest dreams!

  59. Anima Videography

    The best Cosmic Explainer on YouTube strikes again…because he actual explains complex astrophysics papers so well…

  60. Baleur

    That smile at the end doe

  61. Tony Montana

    Scientist 1: what should we call this new telescope?
    Scientist 2: hmmm what did we call the last one?
    Scientist 1: the very large telescope
    Scientist 2: alright ive got it!.. how about the Extremely large telescope?
    Scientist 1: absolutely brilliant!

  62. Lord Pyrex

    I absolutely love everything you have to offer sir. You’re truly a blessing to mankind. Teaching is a gift and a necessity for us all.

  63. Kama Sutra

    Absolutely loving your HD videos! 💫⭐️✨☀️✨⭐️💫

  64. Chris Herb

    Believe it or not, the first thing I thought about the web(s structure) when I saw it first, was that it reminded me of a spiderweb with something big and hungry in the middle of it (or the strings ends),
    and it couldn’t be wishful thinking because spiders are the only creatures on earth I really fear. 😬☺️

  65. MrRABC1

    The large scales involved when it comes to celestial bodies and galactic clusters etc always makes me slightly in awe of it all…. we live in a time when discovery has become mundane but not for me.

  66. ludocrat

    “Colossal Black Hole” would be a pretty good way to sum-up my finances these days.

  67. Ender7j

    I can see, and appreciate, the new equipment. Glad to hear that you solved your living situation problems and wanted to say thanks for making these videos.

  68. BurninG ControlleR

    Everytime I come to your channel I learn something new, a few centuries back your knowledge would have its weight in gold and we are getting it for free. I think that you are the most wonderful person on the planet. Never change Anton

  69. Scott Helms

    “Cosmic Web” sounds like a really expensive telecom project.

  70. Silly Sausage

    If you were to remove all the unnecessary “essentialies” from Anton’s body of work and bring them together, they would collapse to form a black hole.

  71. camouflaged ninja

    0:01 anton petrov “one of the modern challenges in astronomy today is essentially trying to understand two things…what the early universe was like and how much I need to eat each morning

  72. martin doyle

    Might this, in part, explain the ” missing mass ” of the universe ?

  73. sillypinkewe

    Cosmic webs remind me of cracks in the pavement, filled with life and debris. Black holes could be like the storm drains. Just a thought I wanted to share with you wonderful person.

  74. Crab of Chaos

    So there might be a huge spider, huh

  75. Sam Fisher

    It still amazes me how, the zoomed out view of the universe; showing how the galaxy clusters are linked together, resembles pictures of neural pathways in the human brain!
    Crazy stuff!

  76. ytbabbler

    I just wait for the video where Anton say that scientists has discovered that we have entered the no return zone of a giant black hole and will be spagetti next Saturday.

  77. Kami sama

    *Quantity or Quality?*
    Anton Petrov: Both. Both is good.*

  78. Kamikazekid4

    I had to do a double-take on the title. I love your vids!

  79. Nathan Barclay

    Anton. Thank you for your passion for space and the pursuit of knowledge. It is honestly refreshing to see your videos pop up and never letting the crap going down in the world bring you down.

    Thank you wonderful person

  80. Daniel Tyborowski

    So apparently the phrase “there’s always a bigger fish”, also works on the universal scale.

  81. Cj Fish

    Just reinforced the fact that we’re so, so small. Almost insignificant!

  82. Adam Eden

    Love this astronomy channel. Q. Is there anything to worry about with the Star-Link chain of satellites degrading the ability of VLT’s on the ground with light pollution?

  83. sc0or

    Just imagine news headlines of a civilization that exists in one of moving toward the BH star system once their scientists discover a distant environment. “250k years before we all die on an event horizon!”

  84. Michael Wilkinson

    Since anton has moved he is superimposed better and the lighting is improved. Aligning very much with his professional eloquence

  85. Ramjet Anvil

    Okay cool but what we all really want to know is how various recreational drugs affect the shapes of the webs spun by the black holes

  86. Jeffrey Smith

    Hello, beautiful person!! Glad you go yourself moved and settled!!

  87. Ryan Herst

    Since when we look at these extremely distant galaxies, we’re seeing them in the extremely distant past, is there a way to figure out where in the universe they are today/in the present?

  88. gopher

    wait a minute, it should be opposite..

  89. DJ

    If that’s the case the universe act’s symbiotic

  90. Neil Gault

    Imagine the turmoil in THAT neighborhood!

  91. John Irby

    In a few years, scientists will be looking through BAT, the “Big Ass Telescope”.

  92. Snow Johnson

    7k views 1k likes 0 dislikes…Perfectly Balanced As All Things Should Be….this just proves how much of a wonderful person Anton is…no one can hate him and he always give cool information…also 6 galaxies oh boy thats quite the eater

  93. El Guiñolo

    “Hello wonderful person !”

  94. Daniel Alejandro

    So considering this find, is It possible that the “Great attractor” could be an insanely massive black hole?

  95. Jon Bothe

    I can’t wrap my mind around a black hole with enough gravitational pull that at a minimum 6 galaxies orbit it.

  96. Dr. Otto

    … being full of wonder, I imagine a electron traveling in a lightningstrike … things get weird … I look up; Hey there’s wonderful Anton ! 😉🙏

  97. No Count

    Next project after ELT: Colossal Telescope.

  98. Mikey mike


    Amazing discovery.

    I’d like to hear what Roger Penrose thinks about this.

    Good work.

  99. Comrade Maethor

    I love this comment section. I love this community. Look at that, 1.1k likes and 0 dislikes. Amazing. Anton is up there with Kurzgesagt as the best educational channels on YT

  100. tsopmocful

    And now consider the fact that just a hundred years ago, when my grandparents were already young adults, our own Milky Way galaxy was all the Universe we knew about.

    Just a hundred years.
