  2. Steven Bragg

    Did you get rid of your intro?

  3. NastySasquatch

    I really like this event. I think it puts a few chips in the black hole evolution theories. And a few chips into the post gravity theories.

    your lighting changed

  6. Chase Tillman

    I didn’t know we had accepted geodes lol mind=blown

    We have to get What Da Math to a million subscribers

  8. ASMR Zarr

    Now this is epic

  9. Ray Foster

    So would it be possible to say their might be places!!! that could be stellar black hole nursery’s ? Were smaller black holes fight and grow to become intermediate or larger Black Holes?

  10. Tim Jones

    Good to have you back.

  11. Mark Fraunhofer

    Like your new setup!

  12. Zach Hannah

    Geodes for the win!

  13. Highfield

    Starting a petition here to officially suggest you the name “Wonderful Universe” for the Channel. I can even imagine a Logo around it (but i am not an expert) :)

  14. Solexx X

    You are a nice boy!

  15. That Auto Garage

    Pretty neat!

  16. NWTexas Veggies

    How much is an ounce of antigold worth?

  17. John Lane

    Anton’s Universe, what do you think for the new title??

  18. Octopod

    Anton… blew my mind.

  19. FairySox

    Could the collision spit out pieces of the accretion disc which would form bubbles of gravity, or even slower areas of time relative to us ?

  20. Aby A

    @6:24 you say the black hole (BH) collision is 17 billion light years away from us. How is it possible for us to observe this since the universe is only 13.8 billion years old?

  21. David Joyner

    This reminds me of certain levels of the Osmosis game…

  22. Laffing Disease

    What happened to What da math!!

  23. DeathByFishing

    The more we discover, the less we know.

  24. Pete C

    Do we know that these were orbiting each other, or could it be that this is the first ‘oncoming train’ type of collision we’ve seen?

  25. Rosauro Garcia

    I wonder if Anton already have a new home.

  26. Mike O'Barr

    Thanks for your hard work.

  27. Dr Gunsmith

    Your a wonderful person Anton 🇬🇧

  28. Adrian Hernandez

    He’s back!!!

  29. Joy.

    Woah Thats pretty cool

  30. RanderPlayz

    Like the fits bro 👍

  31. Hakan Karaağaç

    Anton is the greatest wonderful and homeless person i know.

  32. Praful Pohare

    Whats up with the Crisp quality 😊👌

  33. Shaman Credible

    from what I understand, the chirp is a result of the black holes when they start orbiting each other exponentially faster, thus creating a corresponding pattern of gravitational waves. The “thud” could be the black holes orbiting in an elliptical orbit and then smashing directly into each other on their last orbit.

  34. Y F-N

    Are you going to put out a video about the discovery of phosphine on Venus?

  35. Lrr_Of_Omikron

    We’re all doomed, doooooooooooomed

  36. Spiderman

    The bright flash was actually the rebel alliance blowing up the death star

  37. Jody Ann Robertson

    Hello Mr. Petrov,
    I just wanted to tell you that YOU are a wonderful person as well as one hell of a fascinating man! LOVE your vids, LOVE your channel.
    You make learning about this very complex but very interesting subject fun and easy due to all your hard work.
    Thank you.

  38. Hillary's emails to Lorne

    thank you for the excellent explanation.

  39. Tim Peters

    Can gravitational waves become so short they are seen as visible light?

  40. Hani

    Can’t wait for the follow up video!

  41. Emory Villines

    но замечательный канал для просмотра

  42. Majin Yama


  43. The 1st

    Awesome as always Anton! :D

  44. Cj Fish

    Would gravitational energy have any cause or effect on dark matter the may allow it to be quantified?

  45. Dr. Skulhamr

    I’d imagine it makes perfect sense, just not in our current model of how things happen.

  46. Cosmo Genesis

    It’s just amazing you can fit all that astrophysical stuff into your little hotel room.

    _”Did you see that!? A burst of neutrinos zipped through our pizza just now!”_

    _”No worries. It’s probably that Anton fellow across the hall doing another video. Personally I think we should subscribe to his channel. That way we can keep a close eye on what he’s up to.”_



  47. Zaph Kiel

    sound in space XD

  48. Magne Pingu

    Could this explain the thud sound?
    Considering the size of these objects, they would approach c while still being quite far from each other. The frequency would not change very much as they got closer to each other as they could not actually accelerate much more.
    I realize that we should probably have seen a prolonged chirp instead, but that might not be possible due to the range of frequencies that LIGO can detect. Maybe we just saw the very last bit of the chirp.

  49. Hortensia delosSantos

    Wow! You are back!? Excellent, wonderful Anton😀

  50. Mike Knecht

    I love your accent. Thanks for teaching me.

  51. Nathaniel Pontinovitz

    It happens Drop and roll the algorithms said that you laugh and cry on the couch is still burning green black body radio

  52. Mike O'Keeffe

    Beautiful content from a beautiful man. Hey Anton

  56. Flavour Month

    hahahaha who is with me with the start of the video laughs :D long long long long

  57. Tina AstroNerd

    In other words, that’s a zip code we need to avoid in space!

  58. Nick Miller

    What an unlikely thing we have stumbled upon 🤯

  59. Louis Quatorze

    Perhaps a collision between two generic objects of dark energy.

  60. Sky Fall

    I always was fascinated by these thank you for the upload

  61. j s

    minuut changes in the fabric of space/time may actually affect us!

  62. Mihir Jadhav

    Who else waves back at their screen when Anton says “Hello Wonderful Person?”

  63. Tara Fojtasek

    That bright flash came from some alien race coming back from the future. Coming back from an alternate Universe 😛

  64. Sdsearcher2011 arch

    I’ve enjoyed your videos for a long time but I was not subscribed. Well, today I changed that and I am now a subscriber. Thanks for all the great content! I love your channel. 😃

  65. Andreas Jensen

    I still wonder: Who dislikes these vids from Anton?

  66. Joseph Grant

    Hope you are doing well, Anton!

  67. Hannah Baker

    I’ve wanted to see this video for so long! Thank you, Anton

  68. Bill

    we live in liquid
    used to hearing small droplets
    now thud comes a rock

  69. Bgrows Mars

    Anton you are the man!!! I’ve learned more from you than I did four years of high school

  70. Samuel Godinho

    “Anti black roles” or “gravitonuminescence” ?🤷‍♂️🤔

  71. MC's Creations

    Hmmm… That’s actually pretty interesting! 😃
    Looking forward to know more about it!
    Thanks a lot, Anton! Stay safe there! 🖖😊

  72. hitmana111

    Anton, would you ever go on a Joe Rogan podcast?

  73. matt26201

    The format is becoming alot easier to watch, great work. Thankyou for the facinating and insighful information!

  74. kyle Rittenhouse

    Hello wonderful Anton 🙋‍♂️👋

  75. Mark Sargent-Bennett

    Love space analysis , it’s funny no one else does it quite like our Anton !

  76. Hasa Diga Ebowai

    That’s insane! Thank you wonderful person!

  77. rzl1234

    THANK YOU for not having the usual intro! 👏

  78. Waluigi Flame

    I love universe sandbox 2

  79. Master Shake

    Whenever you Don t start with “hello wonderful person” I feel heavy depression… but you always say it eventually lol.

  80. Ndow Roccus

    I remember when Anton was at like 800 subscribers and “hello wonderful person” sounded goofy (even to Anton, at least he sounded a little nervous saying it…now he commands his catch phrase like Micheal Buffer!)

  81. Silas Dense

    These discoveries are so amazing!
    Thank you for taking the time to fully explain them.
    Looking forward to your next video.

  82. Simon Clarkstone

    0:54 It feels like your title screen should have been added here but wasn’t.

  83. Mireillie Montalvo

    Commenting to support Anton in these trying times <3

  84. Foxo Fox

    Have been watching this channel since >100k subscribers and I’m happy he’s had so much success

  85. White Night

    In 2019 after that event !
    My knee Mind was opened.
    I would have been lost forever.
    Maybe Gamma Rays .I don’t know
    Now I’m working on a body suit that heals, and Pulse Accelerators.

  86. Christopher Lopez

    I would be honored to have you as my professor. Even in a more casual setting, it would be an inconceivable honor.

  87. ל ק

    Anton, thanks for your dedication to this site.

  88. Alfred Sutton

    Thank you, Anton, you wonderful person, you.

  89. caramelitoalegre

    Who’s my favorite wonderful person? It’s you, Anton. It’s you <3

  90. Riley Robertson

    Hello wonderful Anton! Will you be commenting on the recent study suggesting there’s microbial life in the Venetian atmosphere due to high amounts of phosphine?

  91. Tara Fojtasek

    Nothing should be surprising anymore when it comes to space 😀

  92. TAO TAO

    You are such a lovely human being. I wish you well!

  93. Wayne Shirey

    “Strange things are happening.” — Red Buttons. BTW, Congratulations on 600k subscribers!

  94. Improperly Labeled Loser

    My favorite intro every time

    “A long time ago, in a galaxy, far far away”

  95. Anthony Mcdonald

    “it sounds like this” YouTube instantly cuts to a very loud ad’ featuring racing off road vehicles.

  96. The Captain Kern

    You are a great Person:)

    I love space and science’s and the fact that you are a teacher, my grandma taught Kindergarden and 1st grade and special ed for 38 and a 1/2 years, Teachers are a blessing that God took special care to put on our little planet;)

  97. earth dweller

    Is the personnel doing the cleaning complaining about Anton’s room?
    Wonderfull ! Black holes and debris all over the place !

  98. Pontus Johansson

    “They sound like this”; -gets ad that starts with a child happily shouting-. My tired brain: “Whooooa, didn’t expect that! What the… Wait a second!”

  99. BullFrog

    In the last couple of years, the term “Gravitational Wave Detector” somehow went from complete science fiction tecnhobabble, to something so casual and normal, we’re already at the point of “huh, this particular black hole merger seems a bit unusual, Bob”

  100. billiondollardan

    When I was a kid black holes were still mostly mathematical in nature. People believed they existed but I don’t think anyone expected to take an actual photograph of one much less visualizing multi billion year old black hole collisions
