    Question how dus the light react if that galagy was flat in our angle to opsurve
    En inbetween diverend galaxys?๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ€

    I strongley think that that light we see interacts with a surtenend layer. For the wave to go treu en being directed towart elchader.
    But if this direction of space was diverend we see a diverend outcome en we can opsurve a litleof the space en motion as the galaxy itself pfffff ….๐Ÿ’œ

    Don’t we see the disk from the gathering of light of the stars? en in the center the licht from the frond space that is opening to feed that galaxy๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ like 2 imiges in one?
    As i see the way the light travle is drown?
    20 light togheter from close we see 20 lights en from furder away as one light.
    As we see a ring of light en a center light

    Wile light dus not travle in a particle there but as a interacting wave.
    En where space is contracting it is a black spot en where space is puled open there is light๐Ÿ’œ(as long as there is inof to open up towart its inviorment)
    As where we look en space is releasing in that direction for us to see that light as our constand graventational feilds of the eye has to pull a litle less as the inviorment is feeding the operside more than mi eye๐Ÿ˜

    En bam we see licht where ever we look to a space of negative space towart a more negative space.
    En the way the negativety pulls to interupt our constand pull treu the neurve we imiging light๐Ÿ’œ
    This is how diverend collers manivest.
    As ool things interact constandley wit its inviorment to exsist.
    As we see some part of the lights with our eye as the aminos of the eye was set to the strinks to interact with.
    So ther contribution brings conditions towart the space inbetween mi metterstate ๐Ÿ’œ(even between the meterstade of mi atoms en pmtics๐Ÿ’œ)
    As mi metterstade has to responce to it๐Ÿ’œ

    Around a planet i get it ๐Ÿ’œ as is the same behaviure as the shade boll disapearing wen i walk backwards from the boll it schinks till the light goos around it we dont see that shade anymore.๐Ÿ˜…
    But this is diverend.
    It is the angle of light able to hid elchader for the licht to fuse๐Ÿ’œ
    As it is intangles wit the particles.
    As the same
    A rood particles after elchader.
    Feeding that sonanova.
    Those particle reseave the wave.
    Every particle has a diverend frame of that event๐Ÿ˜ as a fast movie we see senturies in seconds๐Ÿ’œ
    But in space space is pards of a bick particle.
    So one bick particle in space wat still beond the understanding of the pressend men.
    Carrys the same imiging frame as wave from one side to the other side.
    Onley last longer.
    As we closing in to eurth.
    There are olrady parricles oldo de don’t see en understand theme jad.
    For the satelites to see faster time frames as realety๐Ÿ˜
    But if we opsurve the evend from space satelite en from eurth we have to be able to see that the movie we took on eurth en frome above.
    from start to end lest diverend lengts๐Ÿ’œ
    As the particles becomes smaler we have more frames during that wave.
    As that wave is a instand comunication of wat we see captured inside the particles as a movie๐Ÿ˜

    You see๐Ÿ˜… now gama is exspanding space ๐Ÿ˜…
    We see as enrgy release๐Ÿ™„

    do we don’t understand when we say gama๐Ÿ˜ฎ ?


  6. DaveWhiteInYoFace

    Hello wonderful Anton! Keep up the awesome videos ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  7. Xspot box

    Every astronomer who will not discover another type of gravitational anomaly in next decade deserves a Nobel price.

  8. James Aitchison

    Great video Anton, always interesting and educational…and that smile makes everyone happier ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Anik Samiur Rahman

    Finally, we managed to capture that bastard that eluded the best of our detectives so far.

    NASA should’ve called it Gamma ray Observation And Transient Source Experiment GOATSE

  14. Captain Smith

    They exist better in higher or lower dimensions. Like you have prime numbers, the decimal point doesn’t phase a prime number doesn’t to its binary equivalent. Like 0.125 is 1/8, but you cannot lie in binary. Its just the the same thing. However, at approximately 12 trillion, you can, its called combination density. You see any 32 -> 4096 – 16,777,216 is self sufficiency. But why alternate realities? Because of isotopes.
    I was dreaming about the ultimate RAM module, you have 35 Metals that are “useful”, so then the internal resistance means just make a fake quantum computer atomic. But at 2^24, combinations grow faster than binary, its just hard to see because you never make large enough groups.

  15. Sherylin

    Hi Anton.
    One astronomer once said that if a gamma burst faced the earth when it went off and it was within 10,000 light years. That it would turn the air itself black for a few days.
    Comments? Video maybe? :) :) :)

  16. Timmy Spencer

    We’ll find you, BH. The universe isn’t big enough for you to hide.

  17. Noneya Business

    I love Anton’s videos, I am always learning more and more about our beautiful and amazing Universe every day.

  18. Tyler Flint

    Is that a rathalos t-shirt? Love it!

  19. Unimportant Man

    I think they are very close to realizing just how to see light. Light is not a thing itself but is an extension of the matter perceived. This luminal shell is detected not because it had traveled from it’s origin but the matter has sufficient energy extend itself the distance detected. The luminal shell moves like liquid through the EM field of the universe. Some of the energy is absorbed by low gravity objects but flows around higher density objects like black holes; like a stream split in two, or more paths, then converging later on. We just happen to be in part of the stream that we see the spit sometimes. At least, this is my current position.

  20. TooSchool ForCool

    If you think that gamma ray bursts are the most powerful feature in the universe: then i shall guide you to a vegetarian on refried beans day. ๐Ÿ˜†

  21. Jรคtski.fi

    you only need to have longer path, with normal “glass” photon bending, you have echo and the arrival difference, no gravitational effects needed, what was the incoming frequency

  22. reaty05

    Maybe those dont interact with much so all the intermediate mass black holes could just be floating around nothing or barely eating

  23. Bassotronics

    Whoever dislikes Antonโ€™s videos are not wonderful people. They belong inside the realm of the singularity.

  24. Luis Aldamiz

    Elusive black hole that nobody has ever *seen* , really? They call them “black holes” for a reason, Petrov!

  25. antwan1357

    This would suggest that the vast majority of life in the universe is potentially in pure darkness , or what we would see as darkness.

  26. xoxobrantwonxoxo

    I just wanted to comment to inform you that you need to keep making more videos. Thank you for your cooperation. ๐Ÿคช

  27. Joel J

    So basically, we found black holes missing link but still not our own.

  28. three fold


  29. B-McG

    If our observing location is off axis of the grb/black hole line, wouldn’t that screw up our black-hole-size estimations?

  30. Setlik3 Gaming

    Excellent report ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™Œ

  31. Black Redd

    Nice rathalos shirt Anton

  32. Arcana Octonus

    If a feature has a goldilocks description, shouldn’t it be her’s, like Goldilocks’?

  33. Robert Fleeman

    U do a great job man. Keep up the good work. Just have one question thou. Why is it that every scientist I swear says they haven’t been able to actually spot a black hole but have all these details about black holes. Like how can one scientist say we haven’t actually found one but yet we are taking data from the event horizon. Like it will literally be the same scientist saying both facts. Which leads me to think that alot of these scientists are giving fakes that they knownat the moment nobody can say they are wrong. Think about js

  34. Not You

    You need to spend some time with Stephen Crothers and let him explain the math behind the black holes theory.

  35. Devin A

    Dude your amazing! Everyone is a wonderful human! Have a wonderful day! Keep up the every dayers

  36. Skeltek

    An โ€˜echoโ€™ would be plausible, if black holes were one dimensional. There is a ring around the black holes where light can pass through.
    When the signal arrives left first and later right, there is still top mid and bottom mid in between.
    The amplitude of the signal would just raise and decrease again, I do not see any way it could become a split echo. It would just be smeared overtime and not be as punctual on arrival.

  37. factinator33

    Man, FIREWORKS have NOTHING on the looks of a GRB!!!!!๐Ÿ’ฅ

  38. coweatsman

    And the “Goldilocks” black hole is to be found near Ursa Major and Ursa Minor constellations, being the greater bear and the lessor bear.

  39. Emm Kay

    So I’m pretty hand with math, code, and some physics…where do these datasets live? I’d love to just lock myself away with an ipython notebook and some large datasets.

  40. Ali

    Holy shit anoton! I’ve been watching u for so long I NEVER REALISED THAT U EVEN CROSSED 50K SUBSCRIBERS WTFFFFFFFFFFF UR AT 757K+

  41. busybillyb33

    I like how when most of the high level science channels have been talking about the potential physics breakthrough with the g-2 experiment, Anton has so far avoided it. And I mean that in a very good way. That experiment has been well covered by others so there’s no need for him to rehash what we already know about it and it is better to bring something else nobody has covered in depth instead.

  42. Ligh7 Foo7

    If the object causing the gamma ray burst wasn’t there, would we see so much more gamma radiation?
    Edit: lol wait that makes no sense, I just wokeup. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

    Re: I mean If the object causing the gravitational lensing wasn’t there, would we see more gamma radiation?

  43. Sam Harper

    I’m going to stay wonderful just because Anton told me to.

  44. William Miles


  45. Rahul Betgeri

    That smiling face of Anton is brighter than the Accretion Disk of the Black Hole!!

  46. cbody70

    Must have missed it. Where is this intermediate black hole?

  47. phapnui

    Thought provoking. Thank you, Mr. Petrov.

  48. ER Sheetz

    UR attempting to explain why black holes are either stellar sized or super massive by observation. Goldy Locks will be rare for 20 years or so.

    Music of the Spheres, folks. ๐Ÿ™‚

  50. Gerrie

    Hello Wonderful Anton :o)

  51. Brian Krebs

    Is there such a thing as gravitational anti-lensing? That is to say, could one not expect to achieve the converse lensing results when radiation passes through sufficient large spaces of low density? And so, we would expect to observe an image of the background which is smaller, compressed by passing through this lense? Essentially, an analog to concave and convex lenses in classical optics, but with gravity/density distribution doing the work

  52. R Lohmann

    Great video Anton, you always cover such cutting-edge knowledge of the universe and Itโ€™s awesome. You have really good imagery and videos within these posts and it really helps visualize what is going on. I love cutting-edge knowledge because the new research and advancement is increasing at exponential speed thanks to heightened technology and knowledge. Iโ€™s better to keep up with the newest knowledge/ideas as much as you can before it gets away from you like it is getting for many people due to its exponential growth.

  53. reddogg5131

    Good job Anton,,, very easy to understand๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  54. abhi r

    Black holes are using new techniques and latest technology these days

  55. Gary Brown

    Once again, an educational video from Anton where I learned a great deal about echoing from gravitational lensing. Great video!

  56. blengi

    Given they have some statistics on gamma ray bursts over a cosmic volume, what would it imply about the abundance of intermediate blackholes, given this albeit singular detection ie Does it align with any particular expectations?

  57. Killkor

    That smile in the thumbnail, haha, nice.

  58. king Clancy

    Thanks for sharing brotha. Keep up the great work

  59. foxpon105

    You know there was a thing that I was thinking about recently. I only have a highschool degree in physics, but I think I understand that if total mass of a star exceeds a certain threshold they collapse into a Black hole or a Neutron star depending on their mass. What I’ve been thinking if there’s a hypothetical scenario where the Neutron star is bordering the mass required for creating a black hole so event horizon isn’t created, but most of the radiation fails to escape the gravitation well. What would the emissions of this star be? Is the effect of it gaining mass through protons and anything else it sucks down it’s gravity well eventually going to cause a collapse and how long would this take. Are such stars possible and wouldn’t observing them give us an idea of what inside the event horizon. Do they arrive at the point where the star still doesn’t have an even horizon, but some particles are able to escape the surface. Wouldn’t that create sort of a “grey star” where most particles are not energized enough to escape, but those that gained enough energy are able to escape the gravity well. Perhaps this would be the closest thing we could study to what happens milliseconds before entering event horizon A star that has 99% the mass and density to create a black hole but fails to create an even horizon. Did we discover any such stars? And perhaps the reason why we didn’t and there’s a gap between the smallest blackhole and largest neutron star is that objects that are inbetween become these transitional “grey stars” but so so little external radiation excapes that they’re undetectable with modern devices as much louder objects outshine them. Sorta like brown dwarfs fail to fully start the fusion process of light hydrogen, these transitional “grey stars” would fail to accumulate enough mass to create the event horizon of a true black hole, but they still display some properties of it.

    enjoying your content as usual :)

  61. Hemant mudgil

    amazing content brother. Please also make a video of current ongoing conflict if possible

  62. Caol D

    Years back I met a โ€œdancerโ€ who called herself โ€œIntermediate Mass Black Holeโ€. I think she was trying to pay for her advanced studies in physics or cosmology but who knows…. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

  63. Mizuha Nanoha

    Anton truly best girl.

  64. trukzob

    what a time to be alive, the stuff that’s really out there is cooler than most sci fi ideas.. and we can observe it!

  65. Neil Amalfitano

    Great video Anton thank you sir

  66. Come and take them

    Why have you still not addressed the new muon discovery?

  67. Herne Webber

    Damn, ANTON, how do you just keep on being one of the best science digests on “planet Earth?” P.S. I just say, “Earth.” I assume people know, it’s a planet. But I’ll get over myself, for you.

  68. Richard Alleman

    I’m still struggling to get past giggling about a gamma ray burst library written in Python! ๐Ÿคฃ

    Wonderful “just perfect” Goldilocks meso-massive intermediate black hole

  70. ThunderSlav

    That thumbnail face :D

  71. alexis mullan

    I literally watch as many of these videos as I can right after coming out

  72. WhitefirePL

    Can that short echo time also mean that the object emmiting light is nearly exactly in the same direction as the object causing the lensing?

  73. Litespark


  74. Cxzy

    let’s gooo anton another day another anton video

  75. Henk-Jan Steneker

    If it has a echo that short behind the first, can it not be that the lensing object is very well aligned and the longer route is not too much longer? Then the size of the black hole could be bigger. Or did I miss some factors

  76. We are going to go see yo

    Thanks for making your vids. I hope your not overworked.

  77. Hector Corrales

    em :<| i got confused a little, why calling it "Goldilocks", if Goldilocks is for habitable zone of planets in human terms? am i missunderstanding?

  78. Greasy hobo91

    I love science, but I love it even more when Anton delivers it to me.

  79. Rob Evers

    Just wondering, where do you get all this information Anton and how do you manage to keep up reading and making your wonderful video’s about it. More than a full time job I figure. Something else I wanted to ask you. Recently there were 2 articles about (finding a new) particles. One from Fermilab (the g-2 experiment) and one from CERN (this is the one about a possible new particle). Both articles regarding muons. Do you (plan to) cover these stories as well? If one or both experiments can be verified (the experiment from Fermilab has a sigma 4,2) it can probably proof the existence of new particles and possibly lead to a more complete model of elementary particles.

  80. Ken Danger

    As if the title wasn’t enough to get me to click, Antons smiling face makes it 100%

  81. The Captain

    If intermediate black holes are only produced by a normal, small black hole eating a cluster of a few thousand stars in an otherwise empty region, this method would be quite possibly one of the only ways we would be able to detect them at all.
