    That NSF computer isn’t a superconducting processor- i can’t wait till we get one from one of those

  4. MaRs 6M

    Anton channel is my favorite keep myself fascinated watching this at night in bed balled up with headphones until falling asleep again. Keep it coming my guy.

  5. Howler Dude

    when I yell “anyone seen My cup” in my house. everyone instantly knows it’s the above tumbler i’m bellowing about. rest assured, that is high praise indeed.

  6. Mark Green

    That’s just about the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen🤩

  7. Ed Gepixel

    This was impressive

  8. Thaddaeus Maximus

    4 months may be super fast on a cosmic scale, but it’s kind of hard imagining waiting that long to see how all your hard work turns out.

  9. STriderFIN77

    If i could here in Finland, Run this kinda of Simulations on LUMI(supercomputer in Fin), i whould like to, o.O

  10. Curtis DeCoste

    Whenever I hear about “neutrinos” I can’t help but think of Ninja Turtles and their cool flying car. Wasn’t that the Neutrinos? 😆

  11. F Utube

    There goes our hopes for interstellar travel, all that dust and ionized gases are not good for spaceships.

  12. OldGamerNoob

    This is actually the first time I see someone mention a white dwarf producing jets while feeding. Cool !

  13. James Sharier

    As always very informative and impressed with your teaching.
    Do you ever think we will ever revise our understanding of time and distance in relation to our Earth born concept?

  14. SerunaXI

    Sometimes I wonder if Anton ever played the simple game Osmos.

  15. Steev Rogers

    Love your channel. And as always I love the proper grammar.

  16. SMGJohn

    I wonder when we can actually simulate the universe fully.

  17. Noneof Yourbuisness

    We can’t understand any of this until we truly can start looking into at least the 4th dimension.

  18. Thomas Naas

    Ahh, real science reporting. Thank you Anton

  19. Setlik3 Gaming

    Excellent Vid.👍

  20. ss

    Thank you Anton. I’ve bookmarked the Starforge site.

  21. Farmer Miyagi

    So, how do we know that this is the most accurate?

  22. Danny Campbell

    If I was Prof’ Brian Cox, I’d offer Anton a contract.

  23. Gorge Adams

    People will be kicking themselves in few weeks if they miss the opportunity to buy and invest in Crypto.

  24. frizza241

    Could you do a simulation of a SOLAR PLASMA EVENT that hit earth 12000 years ago???

  25. Stank Faust

    Do you think light gasses accrete without first being seeded by something denser?

  26. mfhberg

    Thanks for your continued work.

  27. splinterbyrd

    Thank you wonderful Anton

  28. Lyra

    For real man, you have the best channel in YouTube!

  29. Jessie Estabrook

    I look forward to your videos every day. Love you Anton <3

  30. Daniel Lassander

    Great videeo, i have one question: do super massive stars form the same way?

  31. D Fid

    If someone believes in “luck” and “chance” regarding cosmology, they’re not really able to appreciate what they are learning.

  32. Nicholas Maude

    Would anyone else like to see Anton “Hello wonderful person” Petrov do a video or two with Scott “Fly Safe” Manley?

  33. A

    Hi Anton, the link to the “Sci-Fi book” is broken. Thanks for these wonderful video

  34. Brian Quinton

    Fluid dynamics at “astrological ” dimensions. Never gets old

  35. John Bouttell

    Dear Anton, you’ve made an intriguing video. However, it left me with a lot of questions. In particular, what were the assumptions used in this simulation? Perhaps you could do another video explaining some of these assumptions. Thank you. Best wishes, John.

  36. SpewnyBard

    Wow! Starforge has almost caught up to Dwarf Fortress in complexity! Maybe they should hit up Tarn for some tips.

  37. Glenn Leader

    I love the way that some of the gas jets in the simulation look like they came out of Anton’s head. His mInd is officially blown.

  38. Steven Karnisky

    Stellar jets streaming from Anton’s head! He is in the midst of stellar formation.

  39. Kenny from Philly


  40. ti cassiani

    I always start my YouTube viewing with Anton.

    He is a wonderful person.

  41. matc 87

    amazing visualization and explanation of star formation. deffinetly the best I’ve seen and probaly heard

  42. M H

    I wonder if the simulations of the star size considered dark matter. Because of the canceling out and gravitational pull.

  43. Randy Brisendine

    Another great video! Thanks again, Anton.

  44. Daryl Brown

    Dialectric pressures squeezing out magnetism into a recycled universe!

  45. Rovsau

    This is an incredibly significant discovery.
    One step closer to knowing how stars work from the inside.

  46. Mr Devitt

    I dunno, last time someone made a “Star Forge” they took over the galaxy.

  47. Emm New

    Please Anton, we need real space bubbles now. PLEASE MAKE THEM HAPPEN FOR US.

  48. Joshua A Martin


  49. Stret173

    антох вот правда восемь раз из десяти что я ставлю твои видосы на паузу у тебя табло словно ты хорошенько киряешь, братан

  50. Marvin Martian

    I for one am very happy about all the extra dust.

  51. Cyotis

    Some one needs to take the “It Aliens” meme and say “I’m not saying it’s Jets but …. It’s Jets.”

  52. TheCentaury

    I don’t think you can say that a simulation is accurate when you say that we need to simulate something we can’t observe… And sorry but for me, there is too much information in the universe to process in a simulation… Accuracy is not a feeling …

  53. TaNk T0P MaStEr

    Always look forward to your videos. Thanks for all of your hard work and research.

  54. SJNaka101

    Anton, you say things in the universe happen very slowly, but it’s all relative! 😄 Have a good day you wonderful person

  55. Michael Bindner

    To really confirm, we need to warp out a few billion light years and look backward.

  56. Michael Bindner

    Can they reverse engineer how our system and the local cloud evolved from prior supernovas and dwarf star explosions?

  57. Jerry Taylor

    Should we be looking for why the universe is expanding or why the emptiness is expanding a lot energy being pumped into it.

  58. Ben W

    Does that star formation simulation account for, or attempt to resolve, the formation of planets and moons and other objects around a forming star?

  59. Dylan Mellon

    I learn something new every day. Thank you

  60. The Artificial Society

    Did the simulation require dark matter or was the simulation successful without any dark matter assumptions?

  61. Robert Gaines

    A part of me never grew up, so I can’t help but see stellar farts.

  62. Nick Diamond

    6:23 Anton’s Wonderful stellar jets. 😁

  63. Justincase008

    Fantastic channel Anton. Great vid too. Keep the awesome content coming!

  64. Matthew Suffidy

    It seems to me there are too many unknowns for these simulation including gas cloud density, matter clumping, nuclear change, supernova behaviour, black holes, and certainly dark matter. I mean you could try.

  65. Conquer You!

    I believe when Anton says hello wonderful person, he means it. Makes me feel good.

  66. Home Alone

    Always answering the questions yet to be asked !

  67. Bryan Drewry

    Shouldn’t the mass of Anton’s brain draw his head into a more sphereacle shape?

  68. brianorca

    Knowing how many neutrinos pass through the whole earth with no interaction, I still have a hard time imagining enough neutrinos to actually “push” layers of the star away.

  69. Luke Shannahan

    Great video! Thank you Anton 😊

  70. Kaarli Makela

    Great Googly Moogly! 😯🥰

  71. Guy Smith

    Anton , you are the best ! Wouldn’t want any one else explaining such a wonderfull discovery in science ..

  72. James Aron

    Wonderful Rakata Star Forge revelatory star formation simulation

  73. Tuxu HDS

    Just like in the Fallout game series – Jet is the answer to all of our problems!

  74. Science Troll

    Almost like the stars know what they want and throw away the excess.

  75. LimePotato

    i loooove it

  76. Malachi Stone

    This is so amazing, thank you for sharing!

  77. Andrew 13579

    At 7:30… I was worrying that a star was going to smack Anton in the head. 😀. “Look out!! Duck!”

  78. y2ksw1

    I wonder how long it will take until we can use generic particles and AI, in order to obtain true results without specific formulas. Right now, everything is painstakingly programmed.

  79. SabrePulse

    I go to sleep every night watching hours of your fantastic videos – thank you

  80. axel pothier

    Anton’s comments section is the key to world peace

  81. David Peppers

    The ‘great scar’ near our solar system in this part of the Milky Way -perhaps- was the after effects of one of those jets.

  82. Steven P

    Would make a excellent active desktop.

  83. Bill

    Damn, not a sim i can run in Blender with my Ryzen 5 then…

  84. NewDa Youtube

    Thanks for everything you do Anton.

  85. Bram Moerman

    It would be nice to know how these simulations work. As a software writer, I’ve always viewed “models” with a very jaundiced eye.

    I’ve said it before. . . I wonder how theories would differ if we were using a different distance ladder. I’m suspicious of any distance measurements that are beyond our abilities with parallax over the baseline of the diameter of earth’s yearly journey around the sun.

  86. Gary Brown

    You are our best messenger of current Astrophysics discoveries! I share your videos to the popular Space and Astronomy FB groups.

  87. fnersch

    Anton, when are you going to take your vacation you promised us? You need a break. We all do occasionally.

  88. SPQR2755

    “Star Forge”…awesome name. I like that scientists are also geeks.

  89. Mike Chess

    What a hard worker. Спасибо!

  90. MC's Creations

    Pretty interesting indeed!

  91. Zeta Belotto

    This is something I wanted to see my whole life!
    You the real Wonderful Person, Anton!

  92. Chubby Moth

    Very cool! It is quite amazing how the progress in computer power has improved modeling now larger datasets and calculations are possible.

  93. sidney osborne

    It took a long time for you to get here Anton, now we see how you originated, a you tube star!

  94. InCrIpTiOn

    5:15 wow, those visuals are beautiful!

  95. Hunter Ellis

    I can’t get enough of Anton. His videos are pure curiosity fuel and there’s no other channel like this with so much positivity.

  96. wulpurgis

    there you go again, answering cool questions i would never have been able to ask, thanks broski

  97. Osmosis Jones

    Titan might a larger version Europa or Enceladus . Warmed internally by tidle Forces .
    We need to send a probe to the liquid water volcano

  98. Ollie Worth

    Hello wonderful Anton! I hope your day has been well, and that it gets better:)

    Had a better day than usual today, I went for a walk and found a pretty nw territories quarter for my province collection.
