  1. K.M.K. zero

    He’s was super serious with his ” hello wonderful person” today. I’m kinda scared…

  2. Anant Pandit

    How brilliant this theory is? Anton this was super interesting.

  3. Irena

    This is absolutely fascinating! – BTW, love your Russian accent in “technique” ;-)

  4. Tarna Hammond

    Anton your amazing,bringing our cosmos to our right brain,have to wait and see what my dreams say for the left side to come through,coolest haha

  5. Bloopbee

    Hi wonderful Anton! Your videos are awesome! If youre thinking of new video ideas, how about presenting fun interesting facts about space that the average person does not know ! ✨✨✨

  6. Ivellios

    Thanks for the cool info wonderful person. ^.^

  7. Bobby Pentland

    This is the one thing that makes sense. Thanks for sharing this, see you next time.

  8. Hidden Marty

    oh no step-planet, I’m stuck :)

  9. X - Force

    How can you possibly produce so much amazing and quality content every day. The understanding of how you create this channel on a daily basis dwarfs anything so silly as a creation of a moon.

  10. Rap Clooney

    Wonderful person.. still gets me every time. Thank you Anton.

  11. Louis Brown

    This somewhow gives me hope that rocky worlds could commonly have decent sized moons.

  12. Matt S

    I wonder of these features in the mantle shift around over time.

  13. SaulGoodman

    Thank you Anton. You are the best.

  14. RyNz _

    I remember when you got your new camera! great video, super curious

  15. Manu Sudha

    Very interesting topic . Thank you

  16. Noneya Business

    Okay this is so cool.
    Also now I cannot help but see the similarities between this and Biology Class videos, with how a sperm and egg merge to create a new life, only in this case it was a bunch of rock and metals merging to create our beautiful world.

  17. Lorelei

    Very interesting channel. Do you plan to explain how the oceans came to be? Loved the video, thank you

  18. The Horr0r


  19. Shiskabobber1

    Awesome video! Really cool theory and it makes a ton of sense. I wish I could live forever to learn all of these undiscovered truths that lay ahead of us… I’ve still got many years left in me but not in terms of the universe lol!

  20. Fjord Solis

    I feel so bad to know I was watching your content for so many months now but hasn’t really subscribed yet. We wouldn’t mind it if you could put a short part in between your video to remind us to subscribe. 5 to 10 seconds wouldn’t hurt. Keep it up Anton!

  21. Samantha King

    I love the way channels on “astronomy YouTube” compliment one another, I’d just watched another video about LLSVPs, and this built on it wonderfully.

  22. Kryptux

    Awesome job as always Anton 👍🏻

  23. Kelly Wilkinson

    So interesting!

  24. not2tees

    As I watch more and more great Anton videos, the thought keeps nagging me to show him some Patreon support. Oh no . . . .

  25. Alan Hilton

    It’s a fascinating thought that the earth way have had Rings at one point and we may very well owe our existence to Theia.

  26. Steven Karnisky

    I was a bit suspicious when Anton did his last program about LLSVPs. It seemed reasonable that they are the remains of a collision, and Theia was the only candidate. Thank you, Anton, for following up with this study!

  27. Daryl Brown

    It may be a part of Diana Luna I commented before watching !

  28. Stanetti Els

    Definitely an alien lizard race who’ve built a metropolis at the outer core of the earth.

  29. John E

    Great presentation.

  30. Karl Kuchma

    This explanation mirrors almost exactly a Jamaican meal I had recently. . Certainly plausible.

  31. Mr Smith

    “This does solve a lot of mysteries we had about our planet” – Please make a video about these mysteries, love to hear it.

  32. Naviss

    This is beyond fantastic

  33. Jennifer Joubert

    Would it be possible to drill down and get samples?

  34. Kristopher McPherson

    Also, indescribably massive thankyou to the team that created/calculated(?) this entire sequence and proposal o.0

  35. Kristopher McPherson

    Your videos are always informative man, this one truly blew my mind! thankyou for the upload 🔥

  36. Clark Bowen

    Thank you Anton. Great job.

  37. ellie voyyd

    that is so amazing!!! i didnt know much about theia but this is really cool

  38. Mike S

    Way cool, great video, as always – thank you!
    I just hope the earth doesn’t burp having trouble digesting this meal.

  39. GreggPa

    There is a video on the flood that explains those remnants perfectly.

  40. daesyoung

    I knew u was finna mention this

  41. Water Dreamer

    Hello wonderful Anton!

  42. Alfa Omega

    Check space vieiw mines on coast australia and mines on coast africa.
    The circle formations by the mines are quite telling.
    (edit) both diamond mines, with circular formations in the surrounding areas nearly equals the size of the moon.

  43. Mattooo

    It feels very unique to see something taken as fact change like this

  44. buldonz wenkinz

    My god man… your videos are unbelievably underrated.

  45. Lloyd van den Bor

    Very cool video Anton! Does this also mean we can find small pieces of Earth on the moon when they were launched into space after Theia impacted Earth?

  46. Gerrie

    Hello Wonderful Anton :o)

  47. Joe tuktyyuktuk

    That might be a good explanation as to the highly mineralized area around Southern Africa… thar be gold in them thar lumps!… lol. Seriously though, I would assume that one of the “lumps” is from Theia, the one under Africa… the other one on the opposite side would be displaced from our own core… the rest of Theia, being absorbed into our own core. Or maybe the larger lump would be the displacement from our own core, hard to say… either way, “Thar be gold in them thar lumps!”

  48. Anthony Moses

    Earth ate Theia like like Anton eats mukbang!!!

  49. Jimbeaux

    This and the last video about the elements kinda blowin’ my mind. Imagine watching that thing spinning in with no way to avoid it.

  50. Mark Mccabe

    Been waiting for this one 👍

  51. Joey Shofner

    I wish I had a teacher like you 40 years ago. I learn more from your 15 minute video than I ever did in 4 years of high school.

  52. Renagade5150

    One of your better videos Anton!

  53. Dark Humour

    It”s werd knowing that far beneath us are remnants of, technically, an early *alien* planet (alien as in simply “extraterrestrial” not “inhabited BY aliens”)
    Weird and awesome

  54. TruthSeeker

    This is really cool. I have to wonder how much Theia might have contributed to our core, not just in material, but also the movement that generates our protective magnetic field.

  55. hd3

    Kinda romantic.
    Being so connected to the moon. I like it.

  56. Gary Francis

    Good morning from South Korea Anton. It’s 9 AM Mon Apr 12 and I see you posted this an hourago. 8AM? You do start early.

  57. Michael Ellis

    This is exciting science – the explanation of the SAA is like icing on the cake. Great vid again, Anton.

  58. hades

    Anton, you have absolutely awesome music for this channel!

  59. Patty Sherwood

    My father loved the sciences. He told me years ago that one day everyone would have a computer in their home and would be able to learn so many wonderful things. I know this channel is exactly what his innocent heart imagined everyone would be studying on their computer, and we would all be geniuses.

  60. ReaptheWhirlwind


  61. Gregg Weber

    Is this related to and maybe even the cause of magnetic reversal and the two cores reacted with each other?

  62. Julian Qt

    Very interesting, thank you

  63. Julien Reszka

    Amazing show as always

  64. Em Zee

    You do such a service to the public by translating these papers into stuff for lay people. Never stop your great work Anton!

  65. Kaarli Makela

    OMGEEEE! We have an undeveloped conjoined twin inside us! 😮😮😮😮😮

  66. Richard B

    Best channel on youtube. Seriously, thank you, dude.

  67. deadly shotta

    Love this channel. Know you work hard on this content. Always look forward to your uploads. Proud of you. 🙏

  68. Daniel Mark LeBlanc

    RIP Theia.

  69. NewCreation

    One of my favorite new channels. Excellent content and pacing. Binge watching now. . .

  70. jws1948ja

    You are wonderful.

  71. Locadio Marcucco

    Thank you wonderful Anton.

  72. Circuit7Active

    As a geologist that graduated in ’81, we had no idea about any of this. But then my profs grew up at a time when tectonics was considered an unsure theory.

  73. SpocksLesserKnown2ndCousi

    Fascinating 🖖🏼

  74. Shiny Starmie Studios

    So pieces of Theia are in Earth now, from back when Theia hit Gaia (Gaia is the Earth back before Theia hit)

  75. Luis Pereira

    Hello Anton, just to share with you a quick thought about this. I think the explanation about these discoveries very interesting, but in the case of a few sunken denser masses and randomly dispersed, that shouldn’t create a sensible wobble on Earth’s rotation?

  76. paralysis

    Do a video on string theory, it’s pretty neat!

  77. Derian Vandalsen

    Is that why the magnetic poles routinely switch? Due to the overall shape of the core and these provinces put together.

    P.S. The Dzhanibekov effect

  78. Hexapoda

    So those formations can also be the explanation for Plate tectonics?

  79. Mike Clark

    This is great information! Thanks, Anton!

  80. Zylox Dragon

    Kept trying to put off watching this video so I could binge a few episodes later this week. Didn’t last very long, then I saw Anton’s shirt. Well played wonderful person… well played.

  81. Full Metal Gusset

    Good evening wonderful person
    My favourite Eastern European science geek

  82. elefantito64

    This is magical, so many things that are yet to discover…aaaah this gives me goosebumps. I wish I had the answers to everything!!!

  83. Noah Spurrier

    This might be the coolest thing I’ve learned all year.

  84. Algan Pokemon

    How are you pumping out such interesting videos every single day?

  85. quasitonality

    I swear to God, every single one of your video titles looks so interesting that my gut reaction is “that’s gotta be clickbait,” and yet somehow when I watch the video it always turns out that the title was actually honest and accurate 😳 how do you frickin do it

  86. Prime Technophilia

    I watched Godzilla vs. Kong recently, and well… the scaling of things (planet and monsters, changing during) in that movie are hilariously comical! :)

  87. Rex A Lot

    When Theia collided with Earth, Theia’s core was stolen and the ejecta formed the moon. This resulted in plate tectonics and our kick ass magnetic field.

  88. Bhanu Chhabra

    Would love to learn more about South Atlantic Anomaly

  89. Kristen Sorensen

    Nobody will ever know. All great guessing fun to watch this stuff👍🎉

  90. Dogmatic Kerr

    NO! Hello to YOU, wonderful man! GOOD DAY, SIR! <3

  91. Rozz Grey 801

    Before the collision they used to tell us ancient ones that we had nothing to fear but Theia itself.

  92. piip4

    This video blew my mind. Thank you for these amazing videos

  93. Tom Young

    fascinating to be able to determine all that happened so long ago .

  94. UnknownArchive

    I look forward to these videos each day. Thank you for making them

  95. Glyn Brookes

    I just can’t get enough, we’ve all heard the story about the earth and moon formation but it’s all such amazing stuff that a recap or update is really good.. See you next time

  96. SkyTech RTS

    We consumed Theia, her corpse still remains.

  97. Kcberettam9ner

    “The structures are interconnected! Just like on Ilus…”

  98. Matthew_ Turkmen

    yeeey, Anton!

  99. World of VPX

    Thanks Anton my daily fix sorted :-)

  100. Tokamac

    Nice, always love follow up videos.
