    neutron star?
    all i see is 🍳

    A form of matter that might be able keep growing with no idea what it would do to normal matter… Can we not do it on Earth then, please? Just in case…

  4. freddan6fly

    You say several time “heavy and large” on the subject of neutron stars, isnt the opposite the truth, the heavier the neutron star, the smaller the neutron star because of the quark matter or strange matter in the middle?

  5. Ortherner

    Oh no. Well, goodbye world! I know what Quark Matter is and we are all gonna die!

  6. Bill Fairfield

    Hi Anton!

  7. cay k

    question: at 4:10, is that what happens at absolute zero?

  8. Joker

    They’re just smaller planets 🪐

  9. Ford Fanatic

    Captain Quark!

  10. Earwaxfire909

    What is the charge of these quark matter particles?

  11. Thomas Chrombly

    Very quarky stars.


    Stand up for your conviction

  13. KamuiPan

    For all we know drinking quark matter could give you super powers.

  14. New phone who dis?

    Won’t massive amounts of energy be released when the strong force is broken?

  15. ThomasMiles

    Go Finland!

  16. Chris Worley

    I’ve been wondering… Assuming the theories about relativistic dragging(?) near the surface of a neutron star, what would it look like if we could actually get close enough to clearly see the surface of the star optically?

  17. Rod Norris

    I have no idea what you are talking about, but I love to hear you say it🙂. I always try to keep up with physics current events, but this stuff is bizarre!

  18. R D

    Could we pause such experiments until we have a viable colony on Mars?

  19. Shaun G

    It would be hilarious if life was just habitually destroying itself upon discovery and creation of a single quark atom

  20. R Br

    ZPM quantum foam here we come

  21. Noumenon

    I’m wondering what it tastes like. I’d try it.

  22. Sheppardsg1

    It’s latinum in there quark ds9

  23. monkerud2108

    The cool thing is that baryonic stars are still subject to confinement and will never emit a quark flying solo

  24. Kaarli Makela

    Oy! This is one experiment I would really hope is conducted on the other side of the galaxy.

  25. MegaTriumph1

    Thats what I’m talking about Anton Neutron star break it down to a functional product for free energy. Second thought better leave it alone keep the planet in one piece, is good enough.

  26. George Anderson

    Thanks for another great video Anton.

  27. TheFormActually

    why not focus on quack matter instead? It’s tasty.

  28. harry camper

    This could eventually lead to an endless power supply.

  29. Canadian Man

    As of now we can only get to atomic number 120. The amount of energy required just to go up one more gets harder and harder as we go up the periodic table.

  30. cay k

    haha it’s 420 light years away

  31. Adymn Sani

    don’t touch that Dr. Higgs, you don’t know where its been…

  32. Joe Blow

    Xopowo, AHTOH! Cπaceba. 😬👍

  33. Dorin cel mic

    There were a theory in witch strange matter converts normal matter into strange one…. If we will make it we will find out if it’s true 😂

  34. Daren Wilson

    That looks like an interesting piece of candy at 0:47

  35. Robert Miller

    Hey, it’s Illyrion! Let’s see if there’s a Samuel Delaney fan here…

  36. neovxr

    Famous last last words:
    “Wow, seems we have some quark matter here…! Eeeeeeeaaaaahhgh.”

  37. tubetib

    So many discoveries so fast that we don’t have the time to chill down.

  38. 22 gang

    Does that quark mazter always require to contain strang quarks? I thought strange matter was a special kind of quark matter…

  39. Bassotronics

    Quark energy meets metallic hydrogen…brace yourselves guys!

  40. LaserGuidedLoogie

    To hell with blowing up the Earth, I’ve got a Nobel Prize to win!

  41. Zxcvbnm27740 8

    Thank you Anton. My fascination of space has allowed me to learn from you. Thank you for the great info. Been wondering when or if we would find evidence of quarks.

  42. sminkycorp

    Somewhere out there , in some civilization that went through the youtube-phase a billion years ago , there is a scientist working on this sort of condensate.
    Their lab-tech’s IQ is prob more than the sum of every physicist who has ever lived.

    And we wonder why they don’t communicate with frakking radio, ROFL

  43. Rob Thompson

    Wow, you blow my mind!…

  44. ian forde

    Love your videos Anton Anton always very fascinating and informative.
    It would be excellent if you did a video on earth like planets that have been discovered.

  45. payuptax7777 paytax7777up

    Is look like food , coconut , boiled eggs with candy 😂 thank yuo.

  46. DTFE Martell

    🤣 your right, I am a wonderful person 👏👏👏👏👏🤪

  47. mrjokuihminen

    suomi perkele! :D

  48. Black Hole Generator

    Exotic material? Mhhm yes. Laws of physic not present on earth? Mhhm mhhm. That. Ahh yes i’ve heard about that.

  49. A Gator

    3:30 looks like a hard boiled egg 😄

  50. Angl0sax0nknight

    Hence the reason we find the universe empty all the advanced races destroy themselves by creating quark matter….

  51. Bestowic Primer

    This is my favorite video of all time great video , do a video on cavitation of nanobubbles emiting radiation and 8000k temps causing fusion in fluids such as water creating carbon-14 (?) diamond which is radioactive. But I love this video.

  52. Yves Charpentier

    if i could see anything in the universe I would wish to see whatever incomprehensible form of matter that lies at the heart of a neutron star

  53. Mike Hillsgrove

    You know of course that I will be adding quark matter to my next sci-fi novel.

  54. DME EMD

    Ohhhhhhhh!! I just had so many light bulbs go off in my head, holy hell, awesome!

  55. William Mackenzie

    Imagine creating an entirely new league of periordic tables. Straight out of star trek.

  56. Elsinore Bennet

    In thking about these theoretical quark matter atoms, I’m reminded of Ice 9.

  57. SundayRide Texas

    Thank you wonderful person for the video. Without doing the math myself; at what point would it become dangerous to combine these particles? Thank you for the reply and responses. Love from Texas

  58. Roarshark12

    Thank you Anton! I’ve been wondering about quark stars ever since I read about the notion a few years ago.

  59. Lessons - Reiser Music St

    So someday in the far future might we have some sort of cork matter fusion reactor powering our world?

  60. Amy Kinney

    I’d be interested in hearing more about the relativistic effect around these stars. 😉

  61. Petfama

    I read «Dark Matter» at first and got kinda dissapointed when I realized, but nevertheless watched the video; and low and behold, it circled back to evidence for dark matter after all! :)

  62. Alan Tennant

    I thought quark matter was something you didn’t want any of on earth.

  63. Haim Ben Avraham

    I’ve started wearing a radiation protection suit, made from, ‘quark matter’.

  64. MC's Creations

    Pretty interesting!
    Thanks, Anton! 😊
    Stay safe, everybody! 🖖😊

  65. Velvet America可

    a fine ratio… i will also, see myself out. Love you Anton!

  66. Cameron Dempster

    Three quarks for Muster Mark.
    I was totally blown away when I first learned about quarks. Still don’t know alot, but I sure learned some today.

  67. GlitterJuice

    -lets make a black hole!
    –is that dangerous?
    -no it will probably never happen.
    >creates neutron star<

  68. Overtime Sports Betting

    Wow while being scared of the idea I’m glad we might have found the answer to dark matter

  69. Unknown Filmmaker

    3:09 reminds me of voxels in computer graphics.

  70. Silas Dense

    I love hearing about these new discoveries.
    Thank you 😊

  71. Steven Martinez

    The layman’s Galileo.

  72. WhatsUp

    I don’t even fully understand lots of these videos but i just keep watching them anyway lol

  73. azorthegreat

    8 min in and already 18 comment!

  74. Steven Jaw

    So, Mjolnir is made of quark matter!

  75. The Unblinking Eye

    8:40 “For all we know, it’s extremely dangerous.”
    OK… so let’s just make some and find out.

  76. Science Troll

    I’ve asked before, but I love the question; what’s the atomic number of an average neutron star ?

  77. Inhuman Filth

    Hello wonderful anton

  78. Trippy Raspo

    It’s 420 light years away…blaze up!

  79. Frisbieinstein

    The neutron star is spinning quite slowly. They can get up to 55,000 rmp.

  80. Chip Walter

    i knew it all along!

  81. Jim Profis

    420 light years away. Yeah sure I see what you did there

  82. John Michael Stock

    8:36 Lets just hope it doesn’t have a runaway effect when attracting particles that are near it until it crosses a threshold where it’s mass density collapses into a micro black hole.

  83. Echo

    Thank you for every scientific update you give us. You are invaluable

  84. C Burgess

    The center of a neutron star looks like breakfast. I’ll have mine with toast and o.j., please.

  85. Osmosis Jones

    I wonder if dark energy an negative mass is one in the same

  86. jøkn999

    Were I come from it is not Quark, it’s Topfen.

  87. Sam

    The thumbnail looks like one of those extremely hard gum-balls which you can basically suck a week before actually having fun to chew something.

    Did you also lost interest in them after some while so that you’ll find it still eadible like 6 months later under your bed?

  88. Tx240

    7:19 they named the quark matter stable at regular temperature “Og”?

    I’m pretty sure you can find plenty of that in the 213 area code or in the dirty south.

  89. caitgems1

    I have no idea what is happening but your voice is comfortably reassuring 😁

  90. Scott Gust

    Everyone knows a quark goes in the end of a wine bottle.

  91. Ednagettobed

    I thought there was concern strange matter would destroy the earth if contact was every made?

  92. ungratefulmetalpansy

    can’ wait to see the dabo girls

  93. Walter 1408

    Reminds me of reading “Dragon’s Egg”.

  94. psikogeek

    I’ve been hoping for news of quark stars for years.

  95. Paul Kepshire

    Sounds like a *strange* subject *matter* to me.

    I’ll see myself out…

  96. Matija Perčec

    Favorite Quark matter? Gold-pressed latinum.

  97. Gayest Lorde

    The fact that we found proof of Quark Stars is so game changing, who knows, we could even use this data to invent new theories and ways of making wormholes or even FTL travel! (I’m aware Wormholes do offer FTL travel, but they’re a bit of a joker card.)

  98. IExistSomehow

    “420 lightyears away”

    N I C E

  99. cthulu8mytoast202

    Rubs hands together evilly, “Time to make some Neutronium. Oh, yea!”

  100. Ima

    I’m sure there’s a rule of acquisition just for this occasion
