    magnetic excursion wipes out Neanderthals, but leaves Koalas intact – yeah, right, sure thing, whatever you say

  2. Ken Van de Burgt

    42 in binary is lololo. Douglas Adam’s Computer is having a belly laugh.

  3. Designed Audio

    I want to know if the penguins swim to the other pole when it flips!

  4. The Kiosk

    We actually do have an idea what causes these excursion events. I retract my first comment.

  5. The Kiosk

    Good to see mainstream science finally acknowledging the magnetic extinction cycles.

  6. Opus Buddly

    I’ll probably be dead in 20 years. Good luck!

  7. Texas Flash cove Installe

    Hello Anton the Great , Elon musk was here ☺️

  8. ice cream

    Cute reference of extinction 😂

  9. One

    How do you make a magnetic field..? Electric Currents.

  10. jbelme1

    The ancient Indians here in Louisiana used red ochre(hematite) pigment. I love finding bits of ochre and sometimes we find the course stone they ground it on, still covered in red. The site was out of use 2500 years ago.

  11. Rick Farwell

    Climate change, but not our fault, it might explain current conditions.

  12. Gospel of Thomas 77th Pea

    Well, since Australia was in the crosshairs last time, hopefully the next time we’ll be fine…we hope 🤞🏼🤞🏼

  13. Jake Aurod

    50nt dipole at SEL1, FTW!

  14. SouthernFire Gaming

    Have you heard about phantom DNA? Check it out.

  15. BSB333

    Everyone should read up on all of the research regarding Neanderthal dna and covid-19. It is very interesting for a couple of reasons.

  16. Matthew Krimes

    Wouldn’t we see radiation effects in the bones of the Neanderthal bodies found???

  17. Bill Simpson

    Invest in ocean liner stocks.

  18. MILENEO3

    Anton Petrov in what city do you live?

  19. DaddyAl37

    If it happened today I think our politicians will drop dead.

  20. Chris Scott

    Thanks for another great vid, Great Person

  21. Lisa Rand

    Yes, this happened.I see more scientific people being interested in this event and giving it more attention.

  22. Richard Orsulich

    The extinction of the mega fauna in NZ is directly related to the arrival of maori

  23. Ian Mott

    Fly safe man!

  24. Bildgesmythe

    Thanks, love your channel.

  25. Tyre Hester

    I would like to see some of those 42k year old trees…

  26. Matt Malaspina

    We have a moonbase

  27. rascistrandy

    So what I’m hearing is but stock in a sunscreen company.

  28. Jeffrey A. Smith

    Really scary stuff.

  29. Boban Milisavljevic


  30. Lisa Lines

    Now you see Anton, I thought you would never bring it up. Thank you for the tips on sun protection, your valuable information will NOT go under appreciated.
    Now I suggest you look at how water can be used to protect.

  31. Keny Charles

    Thank you for this presentation. There is a lot to consider on this topic.

  32. Eleanor Chapple

    One wonderful person and one wonderful thing after another.

  33. Wild Child

    I’ve been saying this for years. Since we discovered the old flip in pottery

  34. Alex Bowman

    The Neanderthals may have had less babies in hard times, just like lions do now, whereas Sapiens had babies anytimes hence more babies and eventually outbred them.

  35. Keto•tic

    Excursion event you say? Ok, then I shall go ahead and add it to my 2021 Bingo card. It will be between Asteroid Impact and Civil War, just below Supervolcano Eruption and right above Hostile Alien Contact. Cheers!

  36. Acecharly ishere

    Maybe something very magnetic passed close by and it warped the magnetic field for a short while.

  37. THX 1138

    Makes sense…The Earth’s magnetic field went haywire and the Neanderthals all starved to death when they couldn’t find their sandwiches :(

  38. Benny Pika

    so that how they become cavemen

  39. Nero Bernardino

  40. Mark Carew

    Anton’s channel has gone the way of the ‘science section’ of the National Inquirer in the past few weeks.

  41. Jefi M

    I wondered when you would reference this seriously. I feel it has started. & it’s down by more than 10%… The South American anomaly is down by 30% & more..

  42. Ghostfire Folf

    This is cool, all the humans are gonna die :-)

  43. sleep


  44. Kaarli Makela

    Artificial magnetic field? Can’t wait to find out more.

  45. Andre Williams

    Very educational.

  46. Jennifer Millward

    Thank you for your research : so informative and fascinating. On apparr with Ravin Mohan !!! Wonderful

  47. Gopher

    Hi Anton, I love your Tshirt. I used to fly one of those. Where can I get one just like yours please?

  48. Rob Aldridge

    I have to say Anton that this flies in the face of the ‘gradualism’ theory we’re all taught…doesn’t it?

  49. canihave2bucks

    Brian Forester would love to see this video

  50. Auxodium

    lol trying to shoe-horn 2021 “science” into older studies.

  51. Franko Walker

    I’m glad that a scientific phenomenon is named after Douglas Adams. Even if it is cataclysmic.

  52. Retardo Entropy

    Wonders if there has been a magnetic anomaly around Bermuda?

  53. Solsun

    Tldr; im panic buying sunscreen

  54. paul lambo

    Tinfoil on the head is not just for alien invasions

  55. Wtf! Am I actually right?

    13:46 lol. 😕 😆

  56. sunil s

    That means we already survived magnetic excursion event 40000 years ago

  57. Nicko G.

    With some people being sensitive to magnetic fields, it’s going to become planet of the apes out there.

  58. Nonlinear Dragon

    Wear sunscreen. If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it.

  59. MT Bass

    The south will rise again! ☠️😳☠️

  60. Susan M

    Thank you Wonderful Person. ps: Maybe exposure to severe radiation during Excursion Event turned Neanderthals into Yeti??? Ha ha joking.

  61. Leon

    I have a theory that magnetic shifts happen from the spinning heavy metal lava in the core that are affected by solar storm radiation that encourages the spinning of the core.

  62. pheno hunter

    It Fry’s our DNA makes our life span shorter

  63. Quasar Sword

    Artificial magnetic field. Thanks guys

  64. Alis Fur

    this could wreck electronic devices on land also destroy agriculture? if so, it would be an apocalyptic scenario in the modern era, billions of deaths

  65. Jussainwuturthinkn

    Thanks for easing my anxiety at the end there you’re the best Anton.

  66. Harveywhite209

    I’m 43 now and I can definitely attest to 42 being a doozy!

  67. Billy_Herrington1969

    Anton is the only person ever that called me wonderful.

  68. DOnt forgeT

    This is going to cause me to loose sleep

  69. Anthony Graham

    Wouldn’t the major effect of the UV be strongest in the tropics?

  70. Toughen Up, Fluffy

    We all scream for sunscreen.

  71. Brenda Brenda

    Hmmm, highly interesting

  72. joe dunno

    Yes we do know Anton…
    SuspiciousObservers on YouTube explains it well… Take a look…

  73. President She

    A mostly peaceful cataclysm though 🙄

  74. DME EMD

    Your videos are so damn good man, I definitely appreciate all the hard work and research you put into these! I also know for a fact I’m not the only one, LoL 😊🤘🏻

  75. sarasmr 42

    “Stay wonderful” would be a good shirt

  76. Terry Endicott

    So is it too early to corner the market on sunscreen?

  77. Fleisch Berg

    Yuval Noah Harari must see this video.

  78. BlackMasterRoshi

    “… if another one starts to occur.”
    So now?

  79. sarasmr 42

    The answer to everything, you say?

  80. Mike Henderson

    The earths protective barrier

  81. Jimmy Magoo

    It’s not random

  82. 1488SIG

    >buys an entire shipping container of sunscreen

  83. Pup314

    Neanderthals also used red ochre as body paints and for “religious” purposes and in burrials.

  84. Robert Coyle

    Thanks Anton

  85. Jaden McHenry

    Anton I need the video about creating artificial magnetic fields. Thanks👍🏽

  86. latsyrhc

    Events like this should really drive home how insignificant we are, to me it shows how life is just another universal system that can be taken away as it develops.

  87. stephane lizotte

    chocobo existed for real i knew it xD

  88. Precursor

    I took a shot every time Anton said “a lot of”. Now I’m drunk.

  89. chegeny

    This is fine.

  90. Edgar Fisher

    The answer to the question of life is 42

  91. Red River

    The Neanderthals left the planet riding dolphins at that time……singing “So long and thanks for all the fish”.

  92. Helmuth Schultes

    Other recent research seems to imply Neanderthals remained well into the last iceage, even to 10000yrs ago.

  93. Jack Savage

    So the whole planet is walking the green mile I take it.

  94. LifeUnderTheMicroscope

    Kali Yuga, nature’s way. The red paint used to mark the spiraling magnetic field that would be visible with matter in motion along the flux lines.

  95. Caleb

    NZ is wonderful

  96. Jolly Roger Aerospace

    Hoodie and coffee mug ordered for my girlfriend’s birthday on the 17th.

  97. Youngg Godd

    It said there was 1 view and by the time the video loaded there was almost 1,000

  98. MC's Creations

    We still got a bit of Neanderthal’s DNA, so… I hope we don’t get extinct soon. 😬

  99. Yours Truly

    Everyone knows it was the Engineers who realised that they’d made a mistake and they dropped some alien goo on Earth to correct it.

  100. Astrophiliacx

    I wonder if there’s still an unknown phenomenon that’s taking place in our backyard as we speak.🤔
