    If I die from SARS-CoV-2 virus, I wish to thank Anton for I shall have died knowing the wonders of the Universe.

  2. Zack Mano

    How dense would the material on Sirius B be to generate that mass? Would that carbon be like a super-steel density to us?

  3. Matt

    would it be a Co2 star

  4. Jerry Atrick

    Stars orbiting within other stars…nature imitating Hollywood.

  5. Aurinkohirvi

    Somewhat uninhabitable Earth sounds a lot of troubles.

    I don’t see why it should be considered so weird that two white dwarves would merge as long as their combined mass is under 1.4 solar masses. Seems perfectly legitimate to me that it would not explode. Thank you wonderful person Anton. Another great video.

  7. Janusha

    Doesnt a white dwarf turn into a black hole eventually?

  8. Osmosis Jones

    Wonder if living around a orange star we think that’s an extremely rare condision alowing for life or being tidlly locked you think a spining planet would be to unstable. But in order to have a magnetic field the planet core has to spin. But if they had a thick atmosphere or a moon that’s generating a magnetic field. Or dust in atmosphere or wonder if life it self save what atmosphere it has or has enough gravity an holes under ground to.hold on to atmosphere

  9. E W

    I wonder what the RPM is?

  10. Atlantianreborn

    The dogon tribe knew about the binary system thousands of years before telescopes. Modern day astronomers still cannot explain how the knew about them.

  11. GLENDAIZER

    Is the core of stars is dark ?
    Because there’s no electrons

  12. voidremoved

    So… Its not the sign of the Son of Man yet…. Be strong and wait for the Lord.

  13. Tim Othy

    To destroy Earth once may be counted a misfortune.
    To destroy it as often as Anton does smacks of carelessness.

  14. Kento

    It’s never by accident. We love you Wonderful Anton.

  15. Jagzeplin

    corona cant hold back the science!

  16. OMG DUDE

    this you tuber needs more support guys. give him all the likes :)

  17. Ese Callum

    let me guess. this is caused by DART MATTER? HAHHA HAAAAAA

  18. R34L157

    Very interesting!

  19. TheComicalCanadian

    amazing video it was really good

  20. George Bumgarner

    1,or 100, or 500 Million years? Well I’m not to worried.

  21. din mamma

    the Nomo :)

  22. Carter London 78 animation

    Hi man rember me? I have 9 subs now

    Stay safe wonderful persons and Anton.

  26. Paul Walsh

    Oh… I have to be a patron now to be a wonderful person… (clutches pearls)… I’m hurt !

  27. Theknotman1964

    Can you hear an explosion in space !!!!!!!!

  28. Derek Stockley

    Do singularities orbit each other within the envelope of the event horizon when black holes collide?

  29. Cindy

    I’m the best wonderful person here.

  30. TheMegaOne1000

    How can a star be in orbit INSIDE another star without being completely absorbed???
    I need an explanation for this!

  31. stephane beausoleil

    Thanks Anton Very good video I like them very much!

  32. mrcatfish2100

    Take it easy brother. Thanks for all your lessons.

  33. liojubadu

    At that specific distance, what could plausibly happen to us if Sirius B went supernova? The animation at the end left me with more questions than answers

  34. MaximusLight

    If that theory is correct and given that we know it’s velocity shouldn’t we be able to back track it’s motion and find it’s planetary nebula(i)?

  35. Bart Ermens

    Thx you wonderfull Anton!

  36. Manglus Lember

    great video as always!

  37. Paolo G

    Ultra massive dwarf? Siriusly?

    Space out and stay well!

  52. magicsinglez

    The rotations of stars can’t slow down. .we learned on another science channel. .that planets in a star system orbit in the same direction, and along the same plane, because of forces that occur during star system formation, forces that begin and increase the speed of the stars rotation. . . . .

  53. William Cox

    Bang! Zoom! And I’m Sirius!

  54. maxcity tv

  67. sarasmr 42

    When your kid keeps hearing “Sirius” and thinks you’re watching Harry Potter 💜

  68. Sean Charles

    “Strange Ultra Massive White Dwarf” also describes the bass player from King Parrot 🤘😣

  69. Roudter

    What if there’s more than one of us watching. We got into a physical fight over who was wonderful. Just kidding. Thanks.

  70. Seethe ious

    When you have a star in a star wouldn’t the magnetic lines of both of them entangle with each other and create a ton of flares as well as other phenomena?

  71. Hello Im Alan

    “..somewhat uninhabitable conditions.” As the entire Earth turns into a fireball. LOL

  72. Ken Kuzminski

    Hello wonderful person, I ordered a shirt, you should expan to include ” I blew up the Earth again.” And “it could be Aliens, but it is not” I would get those too.

  73. magicsinglez

    That’s like a trillion human lifetimes. . .

  74. kohoto

  76. Endelite

    6:06 FUSION DANCE!

  77. John Young

    “super massive white dwarf” – an excellent oxymoron, like Military Intelligence :-)

  78. John Brown

    Ultra Massive White Dwarf… so Peter Dinklage in Avengers Infinity War?

  79. Dylan Jones

    “Looks like I destroyed Earth once again, but this time, completely by accident,” he said so casually. XD

  80. BlueGamer 308

    “Somewhat uninhabitable”
    Precedes to show the earth burning in the backround

  81. Steven Robinson

    Just goes to prove that, in the greater scheme of things, Covid-19 is but a tiny and rather benign incident within the cosmos! . . . Don’t you think?

  82. Kolafloro

    I have been in your channel for a while now and i want to tell you i like your videos bc I watch them before going to sleep

  83. Twin Falls Astronomy

    Turns out I tuned in for 1 video, then Im starting to tune in to all of them, caught them all this week excited for whats next!

  84. 5 Days A Stranger

    They used fusion to power up and defeat Majin boo.

  85. Jenahnanah

    Thank you so much for your content 🙏🏻
    With this Coronavirus going around, I really needed something to take my mind off of it, if only for 11 minutes & 47 seconds ☺️😉

    I have a question that’s been plaguing (no pun intended!) me for a few years & I hope you can answer it for me:
    How close together are the stars in the center of a galaxy??

  86. Drakkon Darkspell

    “Looks like I destroyed Earth again, but this time by accident.”

    Not reassuring!

  87. Mark Huxley

    Keep up with the amazing content Anton, and stay safe everyone.

  88. Try ItOut

    Feedback on merch/shirts

    Instead of saying Wonderful Person, Have it say Hello Wonderful Person. That way I wouldn’t feel like a vain, self-congratulatory person while wearing one.

  89. Le Rebel Flagship

    Never thought I would hear “ultra massive” and “white dwarf” used in the same sentence

  90. Ken Karnes

    “Ultra Massive Dwarf”, Jumbo Shrimp.

  91. ONLYHURTSONCE

    “Ultra Massive White Dwarf” four words I never thought I’d hear in one sentence.

  92. Yaldabaoth

    “It didn’t make sense until they explained it”
    Truth of the universe right there.

  93. John Hinds

    Stars can orbit inside other stars? I’d never imagined that would be a thing.

  94. Daniel Secrest

    *strange phenomena in the universe*

    Astronomer: “prolly a binary system”

  95. harry camper

    Corona Virus: ima going to freak yall out.
    Sirius B: hold my toilet rolls

  96. Boy Thee

    good old Anton. the whole world is freaking out, and you’re churning out the work.
