Hello and welcome! My name is Anton and in this video, we will talk about how baby planets form and what forces them to grow larger in size.
Check out the short video from ESO that zooms in onto this system:

    Hello, World!

  2. Randy Rick

    I wonder how many of these stellar observations are based on mathematical “tuning” of what we observe remotely, ie: self fulfilling observations seeing what they’ve been programmed to see.

  3. Jim Curtis

    Don’t know who it is that puts a thumbs down on Anton’s videos, but seriously….. If you don’t like them, why are you here? Your trolling makes no sense. 😂

    Oh… And good job Anton. I’ve enjoyed watching your content for the last few years, you have a knack of making things interesting. So thank you dude. 😉🤘

  4. Menkaura

    Mostly watching in the dark before sleep and suddenly a dark screen turns to be light like 5:45 and just killing it T_T
    Less bright screens please!!!

  5. Greg Phillips

    Vortex Based Mathematics from Marco Rodin is an interesting study which models fractal nested vortices, much like a galaxy/stellar/proto planetary observations separated by orders of magnitude of scale.

  6. martin burns

    z-pinch and large birkeland currents possibly play a crucial part in these formations

  7. Tom Agsten

    How do you guys think about the ‘parallel universe’ theory over antarctica?

  9. Philipp Void

    question: how many planets does a typical “solar” system have? are we with our 8-10 planets above or below average?

  10. DyerAtol

    The smile and wave at the end. Anton Petrov is THE wonderful guy.

  11. ޓކހރ-ލއއބޚ

    Anton is the only person I know who will explain something perfectly well in a way that anyone can understand, and then say “in other words…” and proceed to give a slightly more convoluted explanation. It’s actually quite endearing : )

  12. Manuel Sacha

    I see a king a sitting on a throne, and I’m not even high.

  13. Steven Bender

    Hello wonderful person.

  14. voidremoved

    God is awesome!

  15. Oma Cool


  16. Bananarama

    loved it

  17. bob s

    To observe a growing baby planet, wouldn’t an ultrasound scanner be more suitable than a telescope?

  18. Ralph Blosat

    Waves. Sound or any where for gamma to am waves

  19. El Guiñolo

    Hello wonderful planet !

  20. Etascope

    very cool. big fan of your work^^

  21. R Carmisin

    We humans don’t even know 1% of what’s to be known.

  22. Mark MacDonald

    Most typical galactic animations (including Anton’s) make it appear as though the center of the galaxy is like a rotating sprinkler head spraying out these arms, but it’s really quite opposite. It is fascinating to realize that these various accretion disks are more like whirlpool drains with matter feeding into them. What appears to be arms extending out are more like rivers feeding the center. Within this flow of proto stellar/planetary material, eddies naturally arise and these lead to the creation of planets – at least that’s my take-away theory from this. Great stuff as always Anton! You seemed a bit somber in the intro from this amazing peak into the birth of planets, and I knew this was gonna be special.

  23. Михаил Булычев

    Groundbreaking? You mean groundshaping?

  24. blizzard 14

    so clsoe to 500k subs nice

  25. Adymn Sani

    do you really post at 7 AM your time?

  26. AppleFrogTomatoFace

    Is that Ego becoming a new planet??

  27. Hussain Alaithan

    electric universe?

  28. Itachi Uchiha

    What’s this reverse cosmic ray relating to some parallel universe with different direction of time news going on from yesterday?? Would like to hear it from you Anton 😇

  29. Jimmy Lee

    “jerry, you gotta see the baby”

  30. rbrtblnk

    fibonacci all over again, dude was a reptilian for sure

  31. Foxtrop13

    your entire channel is based on explain how little, the people who know, knows

  32. WhackBytch

    Waves…. it’s all waves 🌊

  33. SundayRide Texas

    Spin is a natural occurrence with gravity. The act of gravitationally merging causes spin. Ty for video

  34. FlipsideFish 41

    Nearly 500k cmon

  35. Nikhil Ranjan

    Hello Anton, can you please make a video which explain why scientist think presence of a unknown planet in our solar system which is not discovered yet

  36. Muah Muah

    Great video as always Anton…. P.S if you don’t mind I would like you to a video on the new discoveries made my N.A.S.A about the parallel universe

    Thanx for uploading this video though and bringing us upto date regarding space facts love you as always… Peace✌✌

  37. K Adnan

    our hypothesis is true never mess with science

  38. Robert Trotter

    “Every truth of a situation, is in said situation.”
    True majesty is beyond comprehension truely…

  39. George Weilenmann

    This gives more evidence for the core-collapse model as the starting point for protoplanets followed by the accretion model.


    Hey what’s the name of the music at the end of the video?

  41. GlitterJuice


  42. Colin Matthews

    Good video.
    Look at plasma cosmology for more answers

  43. The Memes of Destruction

    Hail Anton! ^.^

  44. Andrew Blucher

    Yep, 10^^20 kg per year *is* slow.
    That’s only 10^^8 billion tonnes per year.

  45. UnKleFreaKy

    And so far, eleven beautiful dis-likers choose to know less and less and less..

  46. Molly_music band

    Yay second well 3rd.

  47. Garfield Show

    *Baby Planet* ?
    That’s interperred for life or solid or elusive thoughts ?

  48. radhika ramachandran

    Hi Anton! Could you post a video explaining the recent findings from ANITA? There’s talks of this being related to finding a parallel universe- could you explain this to us?

  49. MC's Creations

    Well… I guess we need huge dippers. 😬

  50. lasarith2

    Congratulations Mr Petrov, it’s a planetoid.

  51. Jimbeaux

    Wow! So much time had passed before we got here.

  52. Anshif Emaden

    Anton plz make a video about nasa’s discovery of parallel universe. By the way love your videos.

  53. High Overlord Snarffie Be

    I’m a planet, I formed from eating tacos

  54. Super Kitty Show

    You have become one of my fave YT channels

  55. Incalvideo

    Thanks Anton!

  56. Kyle Kissack

    Thanks Anton that’s awesome 👍 love your channel bro hope you and Yoda are doing well.

  57. Project Panda VX

    HI Anton can you make a video regarding the parallel universe NASA talking about few days ago?

  58. Beverly Bell

    I’m ready to move , even if the planet isn’t fully formed….

  59. Adil Ahmed

    hello wonderful and beautiful person can give universe sandbox 2 giveaway
    and like it if you want too

  60. DougJK

    This is amazing

  61. kira yoshikage

    Hey anton do a video on the parallel universe thing

  62. Jackvos

    Patterns in that disc looks to me like there is at least 2 more planets forming

  63. \ OldSchoolFreak /

    I always watch your videos to fall asleep at night after i get high lol and i don’t mean it in a disrespectful way. Your voice is very calming and the topic is just perfect to drift off in to spacy dreams🌠🚀

  64. Paul J

    I can’t wait until US2 is able to simulate the formation of solar systems.

  65. Chris Herb

    Daily one video seems really unproductive to me because it’s too much in a too short amount of time!

    I’m thinking about the one “problem” some time, trying to form ideas/ serious theory(s) often not long before going to sleep, let impressions settle (in it), think about it again the next day in some free space (head) time, sometimes having the feeling to get closer to an idea, to a solution and then suddenly😲…already the next video is uploaded with some new interesting facts/questions in it and I have to think (all) about THAT content then!

    I just can’t work that way, so I’ll probably never solve some mysteries of the universe! 😔😉

    And I’m too addicted for not watching the new video next ‘day’. 😅

  66. Sheena Stanhope

    Thank you for all the content.

  67. Lisa Brasher

    500k almost there!

  68. jbelme1

    This is a great video Anton. So intriguing.

  69. Alex B71

    . . . I’m sorry – love the videos, been watching a while now – but, is no one else pointing the “maybe(‘s)” at the end.

    I was halfway to sleep, woke me right back up.

  70. Randy wyatt

    Just realized I’ve been subscribed for 6 years

  71. R J F

    3:48 that unusual spiral. I bet you 5 bucks it follows the Fibonacci sequence.

  72. Digamas

    Very interesting, maybe the rotation starts from the influence of the gravity from the nearest galaxy, pulling the gas into the star with lighter elements colliding first, then rocky planets later. Thanks Anton, keep up the great work.

  73. Mike Reyes

    The first time I herd about proto planetary disk was from Spore (great game)

  74. TimC Cambridge

    Great, thanks ! I wonder how much Lightening goes on in these discs ? Chaotic Magnetic fields ?

  75. Karina Heimvik

    I’ve never comment about it, but i always think about it when i watch your videos. I love the music you use in the background of these space videos ✨

  76. Jenahnanah

    This makes me SO excited for the JWST to be launched!! I’m sure it will be more able to better observe these planetary discs 😃

  77. RexComplex

    Let’s goo Anton! great video as always.

  78. Rob E.

    Awesome information and thank you for sharing this! I’m definitely going to share with my friends. Thank you heaps!

  79. Mugly Mae

    3:45 golden ratio

  80. Eric Taylor

    “and, of course, baby stars” lol
    of course.

  81. Tau Ceti

    When I was in college I was super interested in planetary formation.
    I couldn’t get passed the physics courses and its been my biggest regret.

  82. Michal Kottman

    When is it time to rename this channel “What the ‘stronomy”? 🙂

  83. StickySli

    Wow, nearly 500K subscribers! Congratulations Anton for your wonderful feat.

  84. Mike Home

    Thank you for keeping us thinking it is humbling that we so little

  85. Alonzo Villarreal

    Thank you Anton, your channel is awesome!!!

  86. MJXII

    Something about the way you say “arms” makes the galaxy seem like it’s alive!

  87. Maiden X

    Will you please cover the parallel universe that everyone is talking about? I heard about it on the Daily Show, but I want to hear about it from you because I trust you. Thank you for all your videos! :)

  88. kim dav

    i don’t feel worthy of this knowledge

  89. Philip James Doyle

    1:12 I swear to god that thing should be called the pimp nebula

  90. Daes B

    Amazing! Thank you for sharing your intellect with us Anton, it’s truly a gift!

  91. Lyubomir Ikonomov

    8:22 What is growing in the centre of the galaxy?
    Why ask such thing? Do we suspect other than black hole?!

  92. Tim Truth

    I need to set my GPS to astronomical units so I can start getting a feel for this…

  94. RicoAnimations and more

    I remember watching you years ago.
    You made my life.

  95. Magic Myco

    I finally got a shirt Anton! Gonna rock the turquoise for summer. Thanks

  96. megamanusa5

    This one was really fascinating! Great episode.

  97. Alyssa Snider

    Hi Anton! My daughter had a report due this week on comets so I made her watch a few of your comet videos :) thanks for your help with distance learning!

  98. Jimmy J Crack Da Bomb

    I like you Anton. You provide a wonderful service 💯

  99. Martyn Notman

    Thats some very clever imaging. A little “eye of Sauron” though 😂
    Fascinating again Anton thank you very much x

  100. vigorus

    a few months ago i started drinking a bottle of cider every time anton says the words “more specifically” or “so called”. i don’t always get a drink but usually i do. sometimes i end up shit faced. keep up the good work wonderful anton.
