    Nice work man!

  2. Cosmopolitan Bunkins

    I really enjoyed this particular video.

  3. Greg's World Kitchen

    Thanks Anton.
    Amazing how you can produce so much quality content everyday!

  4. viennapalace

    7 minutes in & I’ve forgotten what the video was supposed to be about.
    I don’t know where you’re from but are you aware of the expression, “Cut to the chase”…?

  5. S. Baker

    Great info. I was thinking a lot about this yesterday coincidentally.

  6. Charles Bishop

    Do pre-existing concentrations of ZR92 skew the results?

  7. JR

    Great video. Thank you.

  8. Marg K

    This is excellent! Thank you! What a fantastic lesson.

  9. SDaniel

    Micro nova can also create isotopes, where we are made of?

    i’ve been watching your channel for a couple of years but somehow I got unsubscribed at some point? I noticed the subscribe button was lit up red as I watched this video.

  12. bebeeisnoheeb

    I would buy your t shirt if it said “hello wonderful person” but not if it says “wonderful person”
    I don’t wanna look stuck up.

  13. Chrondon

    I love your videos Anton, and I absolutely appreciate all of the very hard work and research you put I to every science tific video you do! Thank you for educating us and making science relevant again🤘

  14. Damien Taylor

    No element 115 on there I see, weird considering we’ve known about it since the 80’s 🤷‍♂️

  15. Mixamaka


  16. C Thomas

    “Woah woah woah” pause – rewind always means it was a good episode. Anton: link me to channel subscriptions I cant find it and have a few $/month you’ve worked hard for

  17. Sam Petrie

    Is there any theory about how much less common star systems with heavier elements are than star systems in general? If only half ( or a tenth, or a millionth) of star systems have heavier elements, this would affect the number of possible life-supporting stars.

  18. Willie Wonka

    very interesting topic. Thanks for the detailed description of the processes used to understand the types of supernovae that may have led to the formation of the solar system. Thanks for posting.

  19. Errorcodepurple

    No black hole ejections on that table. I think it is missing from that table

  22. White Trash Bandit270

    Good show bro!

  23. Mike S

    Great science class, thank you.

  24. Andrew B

    little scavenger hunt for the comment section, i just left a code in the comments of one of antons videos. forst person to find it gets a cookie. no time limit on it.

    hint: it is more than a year ago

  25. Daniel J.M

    Wow thanks Anton, that’s why the first 4 planets are rocky worlds and the rest are gas giants. Due to the type of supernova they were made by according to the theory works with the actual solar system we see. Keep up the great work!

  26. Ujwal Kadam

    Next video on G2 experiment pls..

  27. theomegared02

    You are the type of educator that high schools need. You make learning fun and easy to follow. I personally look forward to every video!

  28. Anton Kovalenko

    “The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of star stuff”.

  29. WobbleWarfare

    Watching this reminds of the good old days of Anton

  30. Raf-C_77th

    I always learn something here.

  31. Teemu M.

    anton should say that it was the first gen star from the early universe and it had much shorter lifespan than the second gen Sun

    Anton: “Hello wonderful person”
    Wonderful Person: “Hello Anton”

  33. ehsnils

    I like that variant of the periodic table.
    There are so many variants of periodic table perspectives that it’s amazing all by itself.

  34. Robert Frost

    Of all the subjects in science I find this the most fascinating, what everything is made of, next the very beginnings of life…and then the evolution of man Thank you Anton..

  35. David124C Herrington

    Anton, Good job explaining this. Your are the heir to the late Isaac Asimov in science popularization

  36. Setlik3 Gaming

    Excellent report 👍🙌

  37. Mark Hancock

    When using a decaying element as a lock (such as Nb decaying to Zr) how do you know how much Zr was there at the start of the process?

  38. John Beck

    Ok, so let me get this right. There was in the beginning a binary star system. One detonated as a A1 super and turned to a white dwarf. That white dwarf merged with the other star and they detonated as a A2 super. And then our solar system was developed.

  39. Ray Hutchinson

    You are a Wonderful lecturer, Anton! Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge!

  40. Axorex

    Hello Anton, I’m looking forward for your video on Fermilab’s muon g 2 results.

  41. Johnny Gizmo

    🤔We are so apart of something extraordinary fly on fly on

  42. Michael Charles

    Where’s the remaining core of the main super nova that created the Sun & Solar System along with the Alpha Centauri Star Systems that the Sun is related to?
    It’s gotta be around close by.

  43. ejd53

    My favorite Carl Sagan quote “We are made of star stuff”.

  44. Luis Murrell

    Where can you get that periodic table that shows the cosmic origin of the elements?

  45. Jordan M

    Thanks Anton. This channel is one of my favourites. I always know I can repair my brain after watching (even partially) some vacuous channels on youtube. Cheers.

  46. Tracie Hall

    Once again Anton you’ve managed to put things into perspective for us, thank you, stay wonderful, you are a legend!,.

  47. Klaus Bolvig

    The amount of videos from from mr wonderful is fantastic. May I suggest you once a month ask your ordinance which we need a further explanation for. Wonderful

  48. Blossom Joseph

    Didnt you have a show a couple years ago about finding one or two distant stars that may have formed with our sun ?

  49. Preproto

    Anton you make me a better person

  50. Dean Lawson

    It’s likely then, according to what this paper and other research is finding out, that our Solar System was formed in a nebula from multiple stellar explosions something like like how the Orion nebula looks now. This is really fascinating. Thanks for the videos Anton!!
    Staying wonderful!! ..and as always, Bye Bye!

  51. W.E. Rob

    Interesting periodic chart. Ive never actually seen it related to stars before.

  52. TannerRawlings

    Anyone else feel giddy when anton posts a new video?

  53. SpocksLesserKnown2ndCousi

    Fascinating 🖖🏼

  54. Gary Brown

    Another great video! 👌

  55. Nyxi

    I like that they “reveal”. This next update is looking sick for the lore nerds.

  56. John Fuller

    Hey Anton.. have you seen that Distant worlds 2 is annaounced?
    Love your videos btw😊

  57. Lewis Richard

    Anton you continue to amaze. Your presentations are clear inquisitive and original. You bring your wonderful personality to each episode.

  58. Gerrie

    Hello Wonderful Anton :o)

  59. redxpen

    I like how we’re all gunna casually skip over the fact that there’s an element in the middle of the table that cannot exist. What the heck is that about?

  60. lab zee

    Hello Anton this is wonderful person

  61. Retardo Entropy

    Yep, a perpetual fireworks night. Reminds me, gotta stoke the fire.

  62. Organon

    Is there an app for Uranium dating?

  63. Emilio Mencia

    Excellent information

  64. has kha

    I always say we are a living version of the universe,every time u look up u see ur creator the universe itself.

  65. Arthur Sleep

    Imagine bunches of stars, all born around the same time and from similar materials, all going supernova at similar times, creating a firework display across the galaxy that takes eons to play out

  66. ImmortalHerpDerp

    “All the color in gold, or this color right here” my man has respect for the people who have color blindness. Anton, you are wonderful.

  67. Ronald Garrison

    We are twinkling stars
    Just like twinkling stars
    We seem connected

    Constellation is just a consolation…

  69. May the Schwarz be with y

    4:14 How do you know the original percentage/ratios/amounts of U and Pb in the rock to get a baseline for the calculation?

  70. Johnny Mike

    Great work Anton

  71. j k

    That periodic table showing the origins of the elements is like having a light suddenly switched on – I wish I’d had that eons ago!!!

  72. RacingMachine

    Hello, please read the Urantia Book and give us your review on, there we have all details of how everything started.

  73. Scott Pitner

    Great video as usual. Also love the table showing elements possible origins

  74. brookestephen

    I’ve often wondered which exploding stars gave us all the elements we have on earth! THANK YOU!!

  75. L Dewey MD

    Great video. One thing humans would benefit from knowing more is the element lead. The Cosmos series that aired in 2014 has an episode (number 7) called “The Clean Room”, that not only explains how radiometric lead dating is done, but also the history of lead poisoning, and the fight that occurred in the U.S. during the 1960s to get lead eliminated from both gasoline and consumer products. (Recall that the residents in Flint, Michigan recently experienced lead poisoning in its drinking water, thanks to some corrupt politicians.)

  76. MC's Creations

    Pretty interesting. Maybe some neutron star collections as well.


    thank you for the videos, you calm and pleasant nature really is a pleasure to listen to, and very informative.

  78. ?

    anton: noobium is extinct
    me: well, then visit the multiplayer games and see

  80. Paul Meranda

    yeaaahh remember Moby??? “cuz we are all made of staaars!” hahah

  81. Farrier

    I love the way you simplify complex science for us mere mortals, Anton.
    I feel though, that this topic has been oversimplified from the beginning. The beginning of the investigation, that is. Not the beginning of the Solar System. 😎 Surely, every process that has ever created metallic elements, will have contributed towards our systems creation. Nature is far too complicated for only two types of event, to supply all the ingredients that would be needed. Isn’t it?

  82. Bohemian Gnostic

    I’ve always heard the adage that gold is the ashes of dying stars.
    All the gold on Earth is older than Earth itself.

  83. DeeD

    Thank you Anton for popularizing science, and making us learn new things everyday!

  84. David Gifford Sr.

    Thanks. Think that’s the first time I’ve heard different scenarios as to how different types of elements were formed. Have a Great Day all!

  85. Michael Martin

    I am glad you covered this topic, because a lot of people don’t seem to realise how sophisticated and uniquie the Milky Way is. There is probably very few Galaxies in the Universe able to support sophisticated life forms, let alone intelligent life.

  86. janine Chase-Russel

    That was…well…wonderful Anton. 🥂🖖🏼

  87. totte kotte

    All we know for sure is not much and that can be totally wrong !! Correct ???

  88. Dave E.

    The Universe is like a giant puzzle and with every new discovery we get a little closer to seeing the big picture.

    I hope it’s a cute little kitten!

  89. Joshua T Morton

    Isaac Asimov wrote a nonfiction book called the exploding suns, does a good job of explaining the history of civilizations’ beliefs on what the stars are through the discovery of novas

  90. Kirk Jones

    I think with all of this star stuff, arriving and making up the solar system and ourselves, we can now pretty much say, that we are the product of nuclear waste. Makes me feel so much better now. ;-)

  91. Yisus

    Can you explain de g-2 muon anomaly?

  92. 8Bit Boss

    Oof… who teabagged that poor moon?

    Aren’t we already in a supernova remnant cloud? I think You talked about it few weeks ago

  98. dylan simmons

    Thank you for making these videos, I enjoy watching these each day! It gives me something to do and gets me thinking, which is hard at times being stuck in-doors a lot now. Thank you for the time and effort put into these videos. Oh, and I love the shirt!
