    8:30 Extremely energetic conditions. Red light is low energy.

  2. Bleeding Desires

    Love your content. Glad you’re so knowledgeable and do the research.

  3. Finnion

    maybe black holes just react to hydrogen and helium in a way we dont understand yet

  4. TheElectricOrigins

    Because there is NO Black Hole near a red giant star………………nor far away…..

    bet-el-gerz, bet-el-gers, bet-el gerz – how many times must you be told

  6. Captain Smith

    It will be great when our star is so beautiful 😍✨❤💖💕

  7. DoBe

    Anton, I’d like to see you on Star Talk with Neil deGrasse Tyson.

  8. Micha Grill

    Yay thats exactly what i thought why there are none 😂

  9. WILL D

    I really like your content on these bubbles. I hope we get to understand them in my lifetime. I think you’re interested in them as well. And I think that’s why I’m now interested in them! I hope you do more videos on them. Gosh the galactic center is an interesting place.

  10. Elaniago

    What does “near” mean exactly? Where are the closest red giants to Sgr A situated? That should help give some answers.

  11. The Fire Dragon

    Occam’s Razor.
    The Black Hole ate them.

  12. IdiosyncratiCm7

    can i call you my science teacher?

  13. Turg Ferduson Jr.

    the commercial before the vid was a con artist scamming innocent people. smh

  14. Dumpster Goon

    3:57 centre of the celestial body is Antons face

  15. Bill

    One of best youtube channels, definitely

  16. Dan Severns

    You NEED to do a follow up video on water. There were too many factual errors in the video, and the comment section is a hot bed of pseudoscience advocates.

  17. 77hodag

    I think it’s so cool that we can see the stars at the center of the Milky Way & how they interact with the supermassive black hole – that Nobel Prize was well-earned!

  18. Brexit Refuge

    There is always an exception, except this. So there is always an exception.

  19. Dynam0

    5:20 looks like a dz2 orbital, crazy

  20. T Ban

    Lack of gaseous matter in the general area?

  21. 01drewsky

    Once again a very interesting video
    Well done

  22. scottEMT2009

    Hey beardman!

  23. Eric Thurman

    well, we know the answer to his last: no, there is nothing we can do about it.

  24. Allen Tac

    Expanding, less productive, expelling gas. Red giant or a human approaching middle age?

  25. Andrew Jonkers

    These improvements in galactic dynamic modelling and measurement are awe inspiring but also somewhat terrifying regarding our own small spec of dust.

  26. Winston Smith

    I love how much I learn watching your videos. Shared with my nephew who cant get enough astronomy. Now he is a wonderful person as well!

  27. Steven Todd

    Gotta say… Getting through 2020 was easier because of you Anton!! Thanks so much!!

  28. James Lee

    My guess would be that’s due to the fact that red giants aren’t compact enough to survive the massive tidal forces involved in the region of such a massive gravitational source.

  29. Jeffrey Roussakis

    I once had the second comment on one of Anton Petrov’s videos…such a good time

  30. Mason G.

    “Is there anything we can do to stop it?” Let me answer that question for you now: no.

  31. Ильдар Бикбаев


  32. Sagittarius A *

    Because I prefer Green Giants.

  33. 2pac Einstein

    They’re all in Dyson spheres

  34. Pony Boy

    well, there’s not much we can do to stop it from happening, but yeah, we can prep to make sure we have the best protection for it if it happens.

  35. Jamie Lacourse

    Hey Anton- will we actually lose our moon? After all that time would the Apollo artifacts and footprints still be there?

  36. ExaltedDuck

    This can mean only one thing: Unicron has awakened.

  37. Ndow Roccus

    Perhaps that is why no aliens…their sun explodes and there is not enough time to escape the nebula…😭

  38. Organon

    Supermassiveblackhhhhole! can only be pronounced like Muse.

  39. Narus Ferree

    You look like you’ve been losing a bit of weight; been working out?

  40. Josh Evans

    How Anton finds new science everyday for a video is going to be the subject of its own video soon…

  41. AltGrendel

    To over simply, Red Giants are too fragile to survive near a black hole.

  42. Jordan M

    Thanks again Anton.

  43. Gerrie

    Hello Wonderful Anton :o)

  44. Jerry Atrick

    How sad if humans would be the only beings with self awareness and an appreciation of what happens in the universe.

  45. Joseph Dead

    “there’s always an exception” and always exceptions to exceptions :p. red giants tend to be somewhat delicate at least as far as tidal forces go, the slightest imbalance could send them over the edge…then there’s getting their outer envelope ripped off…that can’t be conducive to long term stability or visibility/detectability as a red giant.

  46. Wayne Harrison

    Hey Anton we have the same T-shirt on. Ha Ha Ha, I got mine the other week, and it’s “really… really…wonderful!!”🖖🦘

  47. vgernyc

    Anton “Oddly, No Red Giant Stars Exist Near Central Black Hole…But Why?”
    Sgr A* “Cherry flavor is my favorite!”

  48. Clear Fact


  49. Wendy Lee Connelly

    Thank you, wonderful person.

  50. Harry Balsonya

    Hello wonderful person ! Love the video !!! Feel free to make shorter videos or even longer ones ! No matter how short or long your videos are always so fascinating and interesting.

  51. nunya

    Probably lots of collisions in the inner galaxy, so there should be fewer objects/parsec and probably exotic stars and planets due to so many collisions.

  52. Xeno Bardock

    All events in space are plasma events. Red giant and red dwarf stars have a very large anode plasma sheath surrounding them which is what glows red so the red stars actual size is smaller and it can also have planets orbiting inside this anode plasma sheath. Black holes are very high energy plasmoids. Cosmic webs are plasma filaments. Supernovas are plasma double layer explosions, a sudden release of stored electromagnetic energy. Nebular clouds are plasma clouds.

  53. Jason Ross

    There Anton said it “ WE DONT REALLY KNOW” Everyone drink !!

  54. asthmatic laugh

    anton calls even the black holes beautiful, lol
    anton: hello wonderful black hole
    wonderful black hole: hello wonderful anton, glad to see you – pasta time?

  55. Jason Ross

    Red giant’s are experts at social distancing!!

  56. Benson

    @ 4:20 I love how you can follow the spiral outwards. It shows that the star is spinning and if the rate of expansion is known than you can workout the rate of spin.

  57. Adam Albrec

    Dandelions just don’t hold up very well next to Jet Engines.

  58. Phil Hibbs

    Yeah we need to prevent the black hole becoming active. Let’s get right on that.

  59. VulpisFoxfire

    Long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

  60. Stutz Stutzman

    I love this channel.

    Edit: I wonder how many planets orbit those stars that orbit the black hole.

  61. Oikku Oek

    If there were red giants present, that would be a lot harder to explain with the known laws of physics.

  62. Joel Norton

    The magnetic dynamo charges them

  63. Rye Fungus

    I’ve been keeping an eye on the skies.. its getting weird

  64. nekotyto

    i love your videos, science and astronomy has always been my favorite subjects. geology too

  65. Thuggee

    Well if the event happened about 4 million years ago we could look to see if you can see any major events happening on earth at the time that cannot be explained by events that commonly occur in our system or on our planet

  66. Sarimae23

    tse..she could have focussed better on the black hole, those stars are blobs, not needlepinpoints ;) :P

  67. YTDekus

    This one was fascinating :) thank you

  68. Charidy Fyre


  69. Morris Smith

    Is there anything we can do if our black hole becomes active again? Yea, pray to your god.

  70. Chris Wandell

    I wonder, if the red giants simply get torn appart that close, because as they expand out the density around the center leeches material off them,

  71. Nona Eubinis

    I read, “RED GIANT SEXIST”!! Way to get someone’s attention!


    Anton, you are a Big Star
    On Youtube✨

  73. TheNoyouyesme

    1.6ly is 1half of 1 parsec,,,3.26ly… does that mean anything,,,?

  74. Marek Paśnikowski


  75. manco82

    The central cubic parsec around Sagittarius A* contains around 10 million stars. Although most of them are old red giant stars, the Galactic Center is also rich in massive stars. More than 100 OB and Wolf–Rayet stars have been identified there so far.

  76. ztwntyn8

    I love learning about black holes!!!

  77. Serious Maran

    Does that mean I can make the prediction we will find some things called Wuzstars?

    I have a bike, no bell, waiting for prize….

  78. Andrew McNaughton

    Maybe this is a sign we don’t actually know what red giant stars are. I’m far more interested in the possibility that red stars are those which have moved out of alignment with their feed birkeland current and therefore they’ve swollen-up to try and catch more electrons to compensate. The concentration of currents at the centre means it’s much easier for stars to get fed by electrons and therefore they can never become red giants.

  79. Extreme Chimpout

    There are brown stars wonder if there are brown holes in space?

  81. Bildgesmythe

    Thanks again Anton!

  82. Gt Bkts

    Commenting for support.

  83. kostuek

    Yeah, ok, but what about aliens

  84. Noah Boersma

    Checking in 👌

  85. PoorMans Chemist

    They dont swing that way. 😁

  86. Osmosis Jones

    This a concept of giant wheels that accelerate space time. Could we ever able to create gravitational vales and create high ways for Faster then light interstellar travel .

    And if any already exist would we be seeing able to see them .
    If there any other galaxies would we able to see them

  87. lethalsub

    I misread “Sgr A* Black Hole” as “Sgr A**hole”.

    Sorry Anton.

  88. MC's Creations

    Yeap, that makes sense!
    Great video as always, Anton! 🖖😊

  89. Louis Quatorze

    Are there any other black holes in the 1.5 light year region besides Sgr A*?

  90. Madoc _

    Black hole eats everything he sees but good old Red he fled the milky way.

  91. A B S E N T I A

    Anton, you are a gem♡

  92. Ruhlov Nikita

    Спасибо большое за контент

  93. Turkey Filter

    Your videos are like a secret happy place I can go to where no one can bother me and I can just relax knowing I’m not just looking at a screen. I’m learning. And your voice is so relaxing. I could listen to you talk about the complexity of anything.

  94. Stacie 413

    Is there anyone else who has to say “Betelgeuse” three times whenever Anton says it?

  95. Клевайчук Нікіта

    Anton: *uploads*
    Me, who lives in Ukraine, 12 pm: 👌🗿

  96. Notme Notyou

    Love the ending!

  97. Ted Schekler

    Love the Sag A vids!

  98. Eskimonster

    Well the Reds broke up.

  99. Cosmobotx

    The red giants are apparently afraid of black holes.🙂

    Everything in the Universe is rushing away from you at ever-increasing speed. . . . Maybe you need some new breath mints?
