Click any button for sharing!

Hello and welcome! My name is Anton and in this video, we will talk about new paper that may have solved the mystery of unusual planets known as super puffs, while also discovering they’re a lot weirder than we thought.

    Anyone from the UK? -Yeah I almost died at the title too…

  2. Paul Moody

    Anton, you are a legend mate! If you ever come to Melbourne, you’re welcome at my place.

  3. p Mybook

    sir mr Anton please improve voice little bit,thank you good work.

  4. Gregory Kitchens

    In 5 years: turns out we were wrong, the atmosphere wasn’t full of methane it was full of a new element we’ve never see before that’s almost exactly like water but has a slightly different refraction.

    im not clever and half this stuff is lost on me but it interests me immensely. unfortunately i dont have the fastest brain and my memory isnt great which i think u need for all this to keep up but so far iv probably watched a good weeks worth of your content and loved everyminute of it even learned a thing or two well alot but as said it just doesnt stay in my head, like if i was to repeat any of ur facts or info to my brother.. id probably say ‘quavers’ instead of ‘quasars’ or watever there called.
    so i guess wat im tryin to say is…from a non scientific or intellectual person your videos are awesome. and i know i just said all that about it going over my head but thats just afterwards. during your videos though you explain stuff really well and u include info for the likes of me that i bet alot of people think ‘old news’.. but i just wanted to say that when u break down the meaning of stuff its really helpful and im glad you do cos otherwise id be lost in space

  7. Darek Luty

    You haven’t figured out anything. You are just realizing you dont know anything

  8. RS H

    Hello wonderful Anton!

  9. Orion’s Universe

    Hello wonderful Anton, I think these super puff planets could also be Hot Jupiters.

  10. Mike Davis

    Very interesting. I love your channel man.

  11. Radical Gambino

    Crazy how light the kepler planets are and still hold their atmosphere

  12. Genetically Modified

    I know I’m childish but the title gave me a giggle. 😄

  13. Diceros Gregoire - Guitar Music

    Do these planets have a rocky surface ?

  14. Daniel Clague

    Anton you are a super puff🤣

  15. Xiefux

    wouldn’t it be good of earth was like this? bigger surface to live on while having same gravity which makes space travel possible

  16. Mike Wizard

    Cotton candy planet 🥶 instant diabetes 💀

  17. Jo Mo

    James Webb. I’m hearing that name for years. I bet it will explode in the ship carrying it to the Lagrange point.

  18. David K

    great video. One thing i always thought about ;, why are the tiny asteroids in our solar system are so incredibly dense . made of nickel and iron .

  19. Boom Boom

    Hey Anton, have we found any flat planets yet?

  20. Grolon

    Welcome to “atom ass” as the subtitles say in the preview of this video

  21. Ruben Quesada

    I love ur voice and ur hot !!!

  22. j.a vee

    Jiggly Puff I choose uuuu!! Gota catch em allll!

  23. Hioctane321

    Are you going to talk about the Radcliffe Wave that was discovered traveling through the milky way?

  24. Mui MasMacho

    Decretion disk?
    Excretion disk? 😂
    Seems contrary to our current scientific understanding of planet formation from dust clouds. 😶

  25. TakeShotAction

    It makes me think that there’s an incredible force pushing something out from the center while at the same time having a natural gravitational pull at a very similar strength.

  26. Spok

    For some strange reason, whenever I hear “Super Puffs” I think “Amiyumi.” At any rate…makes one wonder if all the planets start out “puffy” and if the rocky planets are merely what is left of the cores. But hey, what do I know?

  27. jumonji choo

    Hi Anton, do your students find out your content on youtuber? just wondering :)

  28. Justin Vincenti

    Terrible person:

  29. Dale Martin

    When you discover Choco Puffs let me know.

  30. Calluna Vulgaris

    Greetings from Miami! The way you describe be the planet reminds me of a TV show on Netflix called Lost in space

  31. Branden Jarvie

    I took a super puff of weed before I watched this

  32. akash deep

    So much we learn about space from your videos . Thank you

  33. KCs Funhouse

    Hmmm super puff? Such a scientific term

  34. Darkwolf

    Wonder if they are inner planets losing there birth gasses :)

  35. Emrvld

    Antotn your amazing thank you so much, brother !!

  36. Barry Geal

    Afternoon Anton .. always a pleasure to listen to your astronomical breakdown of our heavens :)

  37. Q Squared

    I thought these planets were supposed to be the density of Cheese Balls

  38. E 10

    Let me guess..
    If the solar system is moving through Space then the rest of the planets are move to?
    Haha trash

  39. Kevin Richerson

    So we’d drop straight to the center then.

  40. Your Average Gurl

    Kinda like the dirty snowball comets! Quackademics 🤔

  41. Nick

    Chemical X?

  42. Frig Off

    Sub titles said welcome to atom ass lol
    Is there info on the distance from the Star they orbit?
    Yes they were different mars is coming into habitable zone not coming away our planets go into sun very slowly

  43. Isaac Westawski


  44. Saf Saf

    First time I’m early.

  45. Osmosis Jones

    Minny Neptunes maybe most likely to have most Habitable moons. Lower magnetic fields then Jupiter like planets witch we imagine habitable moon orbit

  46. ronch550

    I’m not a wonderful person. I’m mean, miserly, and just downright evil.
    Next time address me as such.

  47. Cesare Vesdani

    What is the true density of cotton candy?

  48. MC's Creations

    Really, really interesting!
    Maybe even Earth was like that in the beginning. Who knows. 🤔

  49. Peter Jablonski

    My two reasons to watch Anton’s videos:
    1. 🤓 the super interesting content (of all of them)
    2. Anton 🙄😏💘👨‍❤️‍💋‍👨

  50. She's my President

    They become super puffs when they have more volume than mass to allow them to fluff up

  51. Agape Films

    He checked the density of cotton candy. My new hero!
    Awesome videos!

  52. Newone

    I need to know what’s the density of sweet cotton tell me!! 🤯🤯

  53. Jefuslives

    In other news: There are Cotton Candy Planets.

  54. MarcAFK

    Immediately thought of mercury when it was mentioned their proximity to the star caused them to inflate and outgas.

  55. Mike Shepherd

    Love your vids Mr.Petrov! Thank you! :)

  56. Jacob Dadow

    I love these videos. Also, you are incredibly attractive. Keep doing what you’re doing ;)

    So ostensibly, some planets fart?

  66. James Mines

    True density of cotton candy:
    MMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! 😊

  67. C Harris

    You could float and swim through these planets. They are like pure atmospheres

  72. Rev. Steven Taylor

    The density of cotton candy is delicious!

  73. Porg McNuggets

    Me: *comes to channel for astrophysics stuff*
    Anton: Does anyone know the density of cotton candy?
    Me: I…am not disappointed by this turn of events.

  74. K1NG Larfleeze

    The density of cotton candy varies based on how its collected from the machine

  75. Steven Yates

    Don’t we have one down here called ‘snugglypuff’…..vastly inflated (ego)

  79. Αλεξανδρος Πατσαλος

    Those planets look😋 very tasty😛

  80. splo1nger

    Superpuffs sound like a tasty cheesy snack

  81. Peter Smythe

    “55 times less dense than Earth”
    What the hell are they made of?

  82. George Thomas

    Is it possible that they’re very hot planets?

  83. ً

    they’re called puff planets because NASA finds them cute

  84. Backlash Hero

    Whenever Anton calls me a Wonderful Person, it makes my day just a little bit better

  87. William Mellor

    Puff the magic planet

  88. satya panda

    It’s so fascinating to learn this kind of planet existis thanks you for making videos on this topic

    Anton’s first program : Hello Wonderful Person 😁

  94. Thomas Dusynski

    Dude, I love your videos. Your intelligent, convey the ideas in theories clearly (which denotes a deep understanding of the material), have a good voice to turn these on and let them run in the back ground, and you seriously seem like you enjoy the subject matter. Always happy to see a new vid drop, from you.

  95. MattypusPlatypus

    “I am your density.”

  96. techstepman

    methane…super puffs?…so , should i call them fart planets? what if they are hollow ? hahaha

  97. ss

    Jupiter: “I’m a planet of substance, not like those puffs of cotton candy over there at Kepler.”

  98. 1960's Clint Eastwood

    I love the designation “puff planet”.
    It’s cute even to NASA standards.

  99. ArchEnema 67

    Now that this mystery has been solved, who’s gonna tackle the mystery of Belgian waffle planets?

  100. Robert Joseph

    Me: has a crap day
    Anton: hello wonderful person!
    Me: 🙂
