  1. Mike Dunigan

    You thought you could rock? Well this planet is true hard rock.

  2. David Nikulka

    Wow Anton, God love you buddy.

  3. Đeath Vader

    I don’t understand the title. What is air and ocean? The floor?

  4. REdgar66

    And this video is a great example of why I subscribed in the first place. I can’t count on Anton to deliver the most mind blowing, fascinating and timely discoveries every week. Thanks Anton.

  5. The Defroster

    buy on amazon! nah I got on steam

  6. May the Schwarz be with y

    I wonder if its larger neighbor could kick it out to the habitable zone.

  7. Erick Rodriguez

    Your awesome Anton! Have a great day!

  8. Jer's Cave

    It’s nice to hear from you Anton. Always enjoy your videos

  9. Kansa City Shuffle

    Hey Anton the floor is lava!

  10. Adymn Sani

    we will just need to simulate this using that new computer chip announced recently that is faster than other supercomputers…it is too hot to visit

  11. patryn36

    a planet like that would be the best candidate for silicon based life that i have heard of

  12. Sammy Van Dankstein

    We need to find a planet made of liquid chocolate.

  13. atigerclaw

    Okay everyone.

    Today’s game is *ENTIRE FLOOR IS LAVA.*

    We’ll be playing on the difficulty level *_[OH DEAR GOD! WHY?!]._*

  14. Robyn Holley

    …..wait……~100km deep ocean of liquid rock?? hoooooooooooooooooooo boy

  15. PiffTheMagicDragonzord

    The game of peekaboo was appreciated.

  16. xrm160xqw

    dude, kelvin has no degree…just like you, yourself

  17. Electronics61

    We will never go there for exploration

  18. All the time it goes Like

    Thanks for the upload sir.

  19. Alan Redmond

    We have found Cremetoria. Now we have to send prisoners there.

  20. Philip Brooks

    00:48 \m/ it’s all about the rock

  21. Gerrie

    Hello Wonderful Anton :o)

  22. Secrets with Markus

    Love your channel! So glad to see more sensible, curious and uplifting people broadcasting here. Keep up the good works. I am learning loads, and I am so happy for you, as you have obviously found your heartfelt theme. Keep em coming brother

  23. Kevlar

    We’ve found a Demon-class world

  24. Jan Cerny

    Reminds me of a few lines from Hal Clement’s “Iceworld.”
    Alien: We use protection against the cold of Mercury.
    Human: We’ve been getting the translation wrong. Mercury is very hot.
    A: Hot to you. Cold to me.

  25. veggiet2009

    Ah, another Y class planet

  26. D H

    Obviously it’s planet mustafar from star wars… When anikin became darth vader

  27. Anik Samiur Rahman

    Another good example that being an Oxygen planet alone won’t enable you to foster life.

  28. Alfred Sutton

    Take care of that throat/voice, Anton. We want to listen to you tomorrow and the day after, too.

  29. AlmostEthical

    That’s wild. It’s counter intuitive to me that those scalding hot 3000+ km/s winds only heat the dark side to around the temperature of Titan.

  30. Dustin Umholtz

    Hello wonderful Anton!

  31. Lawr3nci0 636

    We should call these “solar moons” since they are tidally locked.

  32. Texas Flash cove Installe

    Ben and elon sitting in a tree 😂

  33. Paul Nash

    Would be odd at the poles if it had crystals (ice burgs) would be cool to see in a movie.

  34. B.J. Hubbard

    a world where the ground is filled with quatrz, with seas of lava, and a rocky ceiling.
    Pre-1.16 Nether anyone?

  35. Bilada Man

    That is really wounderful.

  36. ShojoBakunyu

    We found the Gem homeworld!

  37. Mephistahpheles

    Candidate for a silicon based life form?

    “Unlimited” (compared to Earth) Silicon & energy would make life VERY different, and perhaps, possible.

  38. Richard Sleep

    Thanks Anton, this makes me realise how localised our knowledge is.

  39. Ill de-Delley

    Soo can we go back to the silicon based lifeform hypothesis

  40. Greg P

    Anton, my friend, this is Galaxy Quest.

  41. Bobby Pentland

    Hey wonderful person! Great story. Thanks for sharing this. See you next time.

  42. Apophis STR

    So it’s just like my microwaved meal.

  43. The Intelligent Carpenter

    Hey buddy, glad to see you have a stable environment again and are doing well

  44. OmegaWolf747

    Wouldn’t it be fun to have a time share on one of those lava lakes?! :-D

  45. Jeff Mathers

    We found our first Class-Y planet! 🖖

  46. Amish Space Force

    Anton thank you so much for all this exoplanet info. Before finding you i thought we had found only an handful of ep’s, this is great!!!

  47. Andy Sirois

    If the winds are so high, how/what kind of cloud can form here?

  48. Lars Rye Jeppesen

    Very informative, Coach

  49. Jon Drako

    0:47 he’s describing DooM eternal

  50. Triliton

    I cant wait Anton for the WEBB telescope, it will unveil a very strange and wonderfull world to us

  51. Rhino Virus

    So your saying the floor is actually lava there hmmm

  52. Zack Stephens

    Have you seen the Metal Monolith that was discovered in Utah United States? Could you do a video on it, we should see if anything in space aligns with it

  53. Just Vienna

    Be careful who knows what ancient Sith technology might be on there

  54. Thomas George Castleberry

    Pretty weird place, I’d like to send my ex there.

  55. mt. shyna

    Imagine having your feet right at the edge between the forever dark side and the side forever facing the sun?

    Reminds me of that riddick chase scene

  56. Benjamin Harman

    amazing. if i remember your other video correctly, might this planet have been a gas giant as mercury may have been?

  57. Email Ellis

    can we talk about planet of Illusions and delusionist

  58. VulpisFoxfire

    …I’m reminded of the Elemental Plane of Earth from D&D.

  59. AlexChannel

    I Love your content Anton! If only my physic teacher were as captivating as you are.

  60. GamertimeVR

    Love that you look at the camera the entire time!

  61. J B

    I am amazed scientists on earth can tell there is water on a planet and how that water reacts.

  62. Silas Dense

    Thank you Anton.

  63. Dewit Oosthuizen

    Doing physics homework till midnight, never too late to watch one of Anton’s videos.

  64. ifotrois toon

    All this planet is missing is duane johnson

  65. srb20012001

    Anton, you make astronomy so incredibly interesting! Your enthusiasm for the cosmos shines through your presentations. Thanks for all your work!

  66. Nira Jr

    I don’t know if you remember me I have changed my name , I asked you to do facecam 😊 just wanna say I still watch and like your videos ❤️

  67. PenPenguin

    I’d say this is the coolest planet I’ve ever heard of, but I’d imagine it’s actually quite hot.

  68. Mikio Hirata

    I love his ear to ear grin at the end of video. He’s suddenly so cute from rather serious look during
    his presentations.

  69. Jesus Christ

    Crackheads watching this video:
    *very interesting*

  70. atom

    Anton ,yours little picture from down right side bothering me.I can’t focus in what are you saying.Thank you for your very passionate work.

  71. Robert Hofmann

    Thank you for this info, Wonderful Anton!

  72. Peter D_law

    There is a black spot when we see that yellow planet K2 … It’s so annoing I can’t handle it 😑

  73. Arved R

    Hello Wonderful Anton! :D

  74. MortekX

    Its Kelvins actually not degrees Kelvin since 2019.

  75. Lisa M

    Hello beautiful Anton! Good to see you, I do not get notifications and have had to subscribe again. Will have to browse your channel and catch up! Hope your doing well. Stay you, always!

    – Hello Wonderful Anton! :)

  77. Manospondylus

    This sounds perfect for sci-fi stories about silicon-based life

  78. Powerup East

    Thank you for talking about K2-141b!! Easily my favorite exoplant ever

  79. Joe Strat

    3000c to -200c. That means there’s a thin band that always has the perfect temperature for life. That’s all that life requires.

  80. Candi Eye Studio

    Cheers Anton, Informative content as always! 1 dislike? Flat earther no doubt!! Regards

  81. Rocflanagan

    Well, we’ve discovered the home world of the lava people from Star Trek TOS episode “The Savage Curtain”

  82. C-S featured

    Doesn’t matter – a planet with a full liquid cycle, however obscure, will remain familiar to our senses.

  83. Webtrauma

    This reminds me of that one Star Trek episode

  85. Draugr

    I actually feel like a wounderful person by your greeting, thanks mate.

  86. The Exoplanets Channel

    I dont know what is more strange, the name of that planet or its liquid cycle haha!

    Anyway, great video!

  87. Pichaelmalmer

    I figured earth has a rather rare dynamics with a moon that stratifies the planet

  88. grodhagen

    I never thought we would ever be able to detect so many exoplanets in my lifetime, and have any details like this. Unless we truly screw up, our descendents are in for a treat.

  89. bobitussin

    WE HAVE DISCOVERED THE HOME PLANET OF THE ‘HORTA’! Jim. I’m a doctor, not a bricklayer

  90. Landon Brown

    I love how all of the people watching Anton are just as wacky as me.. but still hunger for knowledge.

  91. 1968 Barracuda

    Does this mean that an atmospheric (re)entry would be lithobraking?

  92. Português Do Paraguai

    the one dislike is a microscopic spec on this planet angry because you said life would be near impossible there

  93. Chemical Reagent

    I wonder if some, strange, form of “life” could arise on such a planet? Obviously not anything like life on earth

  94. brennan hewitt


  95. Gene Pozniak

    Alien child A: “THE FLOOR IS LAVA!”
    Alien child B: “Duh!”

  96. Anthony Slaga

    That planet probably rocks.

  97. E Lee

    I remember when my mom told me lava oceans weren’t possible… Turns out your parents may not know much as they lead you to believe

  98. Mt. Baldwin

    Check to see if the separatist leadership is there. And if there’s any high ground.

  99. Kieran Bicheno

    Anton clearly has the high ground.
