    Another great one Anton, keep it up and stay healthy

  2. Alex

    Hey Anton, i see recently a lot of talk about NEO tracking a 4.1k asteroid coming close approach in april, are you able to alleviate my fears?

  3. Unbiased

    Anton, you are the wonderful person

  4. maa-iin-gun B

    It reminds me of broken safety glass.

  5. Aaron Finnegan

    The more I learn about detailed/complex information about the universe, the more I get scared.

  6. Badabing Bodaboom

    Hello wonderful anton. Thanks!

  7. Mithrarin

    Anton, you’re the wonderfulest person! Stay healthy!

  8. Lauri Lehtiaho

    To me that looks most like some form of cellular automaton

  9. crankylifter

    Your explanation was brilliant. Thank you so much.

  10. W W 34

    I thought I was funny when enjoying the KEK/Horus corn

  11. Darkness

    Your videos are very insightful. You deserve way more subs than you have!

  12. doop00

    I wish I had some nice salty buttery popcorn while watching this

  13. runs naked through the forest

    and what about the whiter liquid metallic like stuff in the seems? 😈

  14. unslaived moisure

    Can everyone know how to fix error I have in space engine texture loading generator

  15. L Dewey

    Great informative video with awesome animation, (as always)!

  16. budgiefriend

    Thank you for your wonderful work Anton.

  17. Bridventure PR

    Very well explained, Anton, as always! Your final comment about experts recently taking actual photos of a black hole and the surface of our sun to the last km or so makes humanity to pat its own back 😊.

  18. Shelly Scott

    Great explanation, thanks Anton!! 😄

  19. yeet yeet

    Stay safe Anton! Keep washing those hands:)

  20. kirtil5

    you gotta appreciate this dude’s effort to make the video purely informational and interesting at the same time

  21. J Trotter

    It looks like honey comb to me. I still want to eat it though.😉

  22. Lord Azreal Lais

    Well as you can see there is lava everywhere

  23. Dr Downtime

    Dude you blow my mind every single time

  24. Filthy Filter

    I cant start my day without you! ^_^

  25. Greg Reilly

    I was just thinking of reintegration of elements, or fusion and cooling, as you said. Great work, but more can be found in gravitational mirroring. Thanks!

  26. ABDULLAH alm alm

    Looks like my feet when it needs grinding off the old skin… not popcorn 🍿

  27. TOP 6 GTA

    It also kinda looks like Gold Nuggets as well right. Amazing video Anton Petrov 👍

  28. PopeyeCove

    This is so incredibly cool!

  29. NGC 7635

    Danger popcorn

  30. Kawakeb Astra

    🙏🌞♥️😎👑Thx Anton Astronomy Angel love & appreciate this awesome close look some say our SUN ☀️ is Sentient ..feels true like in Gregory Sams book ‘The Sun of gOd’.. wonder what U think

  31. Comrade Blaqkstar

    I’m getting serious Corn Pops vibes from that first shot

  32. Edwin Stewart

    If you like it spicy and HOT!!…I guess you would find it delicious. 🔥🔥🔥

  33. Zarcondeegrissom

    yeah, daunting to think about how to even begin to simulate the look of that for CGI. I need to get the Destiny ship as well tho, lol. in any case, very cool convection pattern.

  34. George Tillman

    Looks like my skin…wonder how the skin look up close🤔

  35. Tim Steffen

    It looks like the Embers of a fire burning with charcoal. I see this image every time i manage to go camping, in the embers of the campfire. 😎

  36. Olegh Rozman

    Thank you WONDERFUL PERSON. It was interesting))

  37. stackfl0w

    Is it weird that the sun looks…. delicious to me? Like I just wanna dip some tostada chips in it or something 😂

  38. Araphel, Ein Sof

    Try “long story short”


    I like the sun…
    It keeps me warm.
    Helps my plant grow and produce nice bud.
    I meant corn.

  40. Dr. Brontosaurus

    The greatest structures in nature are modeled by the mundane: the Moon is made of cheese, the Sun is made of caramel corn.

  41. Patrick Barry

    Hello Anton. Thank you for the great videos. I run the audio at 0.75 speed because I’m a bit slow.

  42. spacefrog

    Yes, but why is the music of the intro so extremly quiet? 🤣🤣🤣

  43. -][][-

    Kinda like a massively complex and perpetually evolving, 3D standing wave….

  44. Satoshi Gekkouga

    0:01 well that is a twxture of a glowstone but its the sun so the sun is made of glowstone.

  45. The Grey Wanderer

    I have a feeling that the short answer is: physics. 😋

  46. techstepman

    first thing i thought when i saw this is that it looks like the surface of water before reaching boiling tempature in a kettle. Nothing strange at all. Seems natural to me.

  47. Goldzior

    Thank you for another video, always a pleasure to learn something new.

  48. jacqui_sparkle

    thank you!!! i was wondering this as well :)

  49. ole9421

    “My god it’s… it’s… a giant lava lamp!”

  50. RDE Lutherie

    Caramel popcorn! It’s a huge convection confection! (<:

  51. Meikitamemo

    it looks more like gold then popcorn lol , so let’s call it golden popcorn XD

  52. antony kulik

    We love you Anton❤️❤️❤️

  53. MC's Creations

    That’s my secret, Captain, I’m always hungry. 😬

  54. W P

    The universe is hold together by wonderful persons \o/

  55. Chris Jackson

    Every once in a while, a video will make me step back and realize just how incredible the universe we live in is. It doesnt have to be like this, it could be all boring and drab and strait forward.
    What an incredible thing all this is, the good and the bad.
    Then there are guys like Anton that make it even better. Cheers mate!

  56. Wurmi -

    2:12 so in a nutcell*

  57. side-fish

    You know what, I did see something like that from a hot miso soup I ordered in a restaurant.

  58. Pup314

    Reminds me of convective cloud tops of cumulo nimbus clouds, Anvil top storm clouds on Earth.

  59. David O'Connor

    Once again, thank you Anton! I’m old now but still learning. I consider you one of my teachers.

  60. Dustin MidNyte Driscoll

    So we finally have a “black hole sun”

  61. Rajko Marceta

    5:37 best explanation.

  62. Believe For sure

    Hello Anton, This is wonderful person! Keep up the great content!

  63. Daedric Prince of Smash

    Careful not to eat the sun, you’ll catch the coronavirus from it’s corona.

  64. LS-Z

    “Would you eat the sun if it were made of popcorn??” Harry Caray, probably

  65. Johnny MF Bravo

    I think its amazing that something as large as a star can burn on its own for billions of years.

  66. Arctic

    Sun’s surface: looks like popcorn
    Everyone: let’s eat it

  67. lsdave42

    After watching this video, I feel the need to start a gofundme to buy Anton some popcorn

  68. Rocky Since, 1951

    We have a fod called Chikki (made from nuts and jaggery) that looks exactly the same as this.

  69. Just Some Guy without a Mustache

    Whoa, the sun looks like popcorn, which is weird because I’m eating popcorn right now

  70. MrKillswitch88

    What impresses me is how dense the gas is under all that gravity something along the lines of 1.28x that of water if that figure is correct.

  71. Dāvids Stalidzāns

    “these larger stars also have shells.. so in a nutshell..” Those some next level puns.

  72. Conor McMullen

    That T-shirt is beautiful! I’ll buy one right now!

  73. Animal Mother

    Google “anode tufting” “electric granulation”

  74. will2see

    4:46 – “This is essentially very similar to what’s happening on the Sun…” – … except totally different.

  75. BikeAngeles

    Hello wonderful person. Glad to see you’re ok!

  76. Nate

    You are a Wonderful Person Anton. I wish more people could be like you :)

  77. paul snor

    What everybody calls a ‘picture’ is actually a short timelapse movie of a handful of frames, as is plain to see. If you could, and i’m sure the image-handling guys at the Inouyi observatory were smart enough to try, to identify each granulum from frame to frame, you could transform the temporal evolution of the granula to a 3d-model of the convection process, ie including depth beneath the surface instead of time (frame nr.).
    What really puzzles me is the nature and the history of the little bright snippets between the granula. Come on, Inouyi team, you know more than you told us.

  78. Robin Morritt

    I took a good look, but couldn’t see anything. Now I can’t see anything at all. 😆

  79. The Exoplanets Channel

    One day, we will build a *nuclear fusion reactor*

  80. Demonic Akumi

    Looks like movable shards on top of a magnified crystal. Or Caramel corn that has gone sentient.

  81. zztop3000

    In a nutshell seems to be Anton’s new favorite phrase

  82. Sphinx Rising

    Think of a Lava Lamp & how it works, but from the top.

  83. Handsome Millenial

    Me: *Cooks soup and noticed a convection*
    Also me: i am become death, the destroyer of worlds

  84. Martyn Notman

    My first thought before you started talking was “mmmm popcorn” 😂

  85. X9 V2

    So the sun’s surface looks exactly like a ‘Peanut pancake’ 😂😂

  86. Marc Bali

    Thank you for the videos, wonderful person!! 😊

    hello wonderful comment reader! :D

  95. Fred Flintstone

    Your getting 1000 views a min. That’s better than most of the MSM, Cheers. Thanks for taking the time to do what you do.

  96. antwan1357

    it just looks like a uncountable number of separate explosions squished together , but yet somehow each is separated by something invisible.

  97. M B

    I feel very privileged to live in an era where we know what the surface of the Sun looks like 😊 🙏


    They also form naturally when making crème brûlée

    The moon is cheese,
    the sun is popcorn.
