Scientists may have discovered some clues to two vastly different anomalies. Microscopic diamonds inside of meteors, and why ancient black holes are so massive.

    Gravity isn’t a force

  2. TheFourthWinchester

    If only people knew how common diamonds are even on Earth.

  3. Roland Thibault

    2 people don’t like tiny space diamonds. Losers.

  4. Gil Wanderley

    Tiny space diamonds? Lucy is there too.

  5. Bev inBoulder

    Wow! I really caught this one early. Love your videos Hank!

  6. Jobey

    I’m a software engineer and longtime DataCamp subscriber for my own sake. Great sponsor, highly recommend.

    Nice

    Mars doesn’t have enough atmospheric pressure for liquid water but if a planet has so much water vapor in the atmosphere it would create pressure point for liquid water. And the water in the upper atmosphere would protect against solar radiation. Especially if more becomes ice. As its distance from sun water in atmosphere would create a green house affect

    Typical origin story

    Why the reupload????

    How can a black holes light reach us if no light can escape its gravity?

    DIAMON METAL OR GOLD CANNOT MADE IN THE SPACE, THIS MINERAL ARE NEEDS A VULCANO TO BUILT BECAUSE THAT MINERAL ARE CAME FROM THE MOISTUTE OF THE TREES AND CAME FROM LEAVES AND BRANCH OF THE TREES BECAUSE DUST IN THE SPACE ARE NEEDS TO CONVERT INTO LIFE LIKE TREES AND PLANTS AND THE MOISTURE OF THE TREES ARE NEEDS TO ADD IN SOIL AND BY USING OF HEAT OF LAVA THAT MOISTURE ARE CONVERTING INTO MINERAL, WITHOUT TREES MINERAL CANNOT MADE

    I recently found out that black holes are entangled with the energy they emit and that it’s possible for two black holes to be entangled if each black hole absorbs one part of an entangled pair. In thinking about this I realized that if one black hole absorbs the radiation from another then those black holes should be entangled because its the equivalent of each black hole absorbing one half of an entangled pair. Which means that between the two black holes there exists an Einstein Rosen bridge. Though you cannot go in one and exit the other into a completely different location they are nonetheless connected over vast distances and it is possible to enter one black hole and arrive inside another.

  18. Little Forest

    Why do models to explain the development of black holes only involve usual matter? With the only thing we know about dark matter being it has mass, why can’t there be a black hole be created or grow bigger by dark matter? And since we already use dark matter to explain things that do not make sense otherwise, why not use it as one possible explanation of the mysterious supermassive black holes?

  19. Yiglic Persfactious

    Maybe the Webb can find more Webs?

  20. Cooper Gehmlich

    Are you saying that “black holes growing by pulling in material from its surroundings” wasn’t already a strong hypothesis? I always assumed that would have been anyone’s first thought!

  21. Yellow Penetrator

    i cant learn anything new with this video

  22. viper fang

    I’m collect meteorites

  23. Al Kh

    IT’sA RRrrrRaiNinG MEN.. oh wait diamonds

  24. Steve M

    Hes a weasely type human

  25. chan jade

    Who here love space

  26. Tephlin

    Now we need someone named Lucy

  27. rubbers3

    *Something massive hit it* again, huh?

  28. Tim Robinson

    An over abundance of Lonsdaleite and Nano Diamonds (as well as a bunch of other impact proxies) are found on earth at the Younger Dryas Boundary black mat around the world dated back the end of the last ice age 12,800 years ago implying that a massive extra terrestrial event occurred.

  29. sagacious03

    Neat explanation. Thanks for uploading!

  30. Karl Kutac

    Do the micro diamonds have to be formed by planetary bodies colliding? A short period of intense pressure sounds like a supernova. Could the diamonds have been blasted out from a supernova’s cloud of gasses, which later formed our solar system? If the astronomers discarded this as a possibility, you’d think Hank would have mentioned it and explained why they could not have been from a supernova. (It’s never aliens. It’s always a collision…)

  31. Lyndsay Brown

    Even black holes know the value of teamwork!

  32. Bruce Liu

    Throw a coal rock or oil rock from orbit to the ground,and see if diamonds form.

  33. Matthew Christofferson

    Can something be unearthed if it’s on a meteorite?🤔🤔

  34. Legolas E

    Just imagine the day we advance our telescopes enough so that we can see light from the very beginning of the universe or be able to see where the universe ends and maybe map where we are in it.

  35. Jessebob Æ

    As long as they don’t come from Uranus. 🥁

  36. Nate ThatsNasty

    this gives a lot of credibility to a “mars-like” body impacting to us create the moon. not only from the initial collision, but you know that it could take a billion years or more for “every” piece of that collision to coalesce into both the moon, the earth, and small meteors circling both until they finally merge.

  37. Jason Rand

    A great video as always…. I love all the hosts / hostesses on SciShow Space, but I must say, I do not know if it was somehow on purpose and tied to the episode, but damn, I was diggin’ that shirt the gentleman was wearing…. Nice, crisp, black and looked like little pieces of diamond shining back at the camera without being toooooo flashy. I thought it was very tasteful. Just my opinion. As always, thank you all for your hard work and fascinating episodes…. Feed me more! Take care y’all!! ❤️☺️

  38. Waylen Edge

    It’s not a black hole 🕳 it’s a light emitting hole!

  39. Stan Burton

    Not all diamonds require high temperature/pressure. CVD diamond coatings happen in carbon containing plasmas.

  40. James Monahan

    A very fine abrasive. I wonder what number that would be?
    All the people in those galaxies are saying Hey, look where we live.
    That’s a lot of people.

  41. ResortDog

    They found the dust clouds follow magnetic filed lines like plasma does, and a whole lot more of it since they can see “better”. Still no dark matter found.

  42. Redrumm5150

    Lonsdaleite looks like it doing the YMCA dance.

  43. Wriestheart

    Or the black holes existed already from whatever preceded the Big Bang. Sorry, but the idea of this universe being the only one that ever existed or will ever exist, or that “in the beginning there was nothing, which exploded”, never made any sense to me. Especially since I’m pretty sure the Big Bang Theory came from the catholic church

  44. hotdrippyglass

    Sounds to me like the tiny diamonds formed during the nova of the star that formed the carbon to bein with.

  45. YehoshuaBenTorah

    There can be no such thing as a black hole, there is no where for it to go. A funnel comes out and we an see where it comes out on the small end.

  46. NTclaymore

    Hank. Are we talking about a natural satellite when you say “touching moon bits”?

  47. Rex Haywood

    crazy to think how big that black hole would be now, some 13 billion years later…

  48. FiguraCinque

    Does dark matter fall into black holes like regular matter?

  49. Joy L

    how much is an oodle?
    I’ve never heard of this standard of measurement.

  50. Below AverageNerd

    Why is everything formed from a collision

  51. Stax

    But what if all three hypotheses are the right one?

  52. Jason Rand

    With people mentioning Lucy, now I have music stuck in my head, but because someone mentioned their wife and a tiny engagement ring (rock), I now have, ” I wanna rock!” just begging to be played anytime I see a video involving space rocks from now on. Thanks y’all! Good thing I love the song, my neighbors won’t for much longer I reckon. 😂😂😂 Y’all be safe! ❤️

  53. CloudHater

    Huh. I remember reading a donald duck comic where they smashed together carbon asteroids to make diamonds like 5-10 years ago. cool

  54. Phoenix Wright

    How much do Lonsdaleite sell? I just may be able to make tons of them with my stress (2:15).

  55. Morgan

    Can’t decide if today video was genuinely A LOT of information or I’m just so tired that I need to rewatch it tomorrow lol

  56. Thomas Burkhart

    when you said it’s diameter is 300 times the size of the milky way….i just sat here; that is *enormous*

  57. Cameron Ward

    Support from us Kiwis in New Zealand

  58. Jamal Ahmed

    If Lonsdaleite doesn’t form through long periods of periods, then why don’t they call it shortsdaleite

  59. SupraSonic snk

    In The Entire Universe “Wood” Is Certainly More Rare Than Diamonds

  60. New Message

    Wish my wife was as excited about the tiny diamond on her engagement ring…

  61. Tathrennor

    Thank you for always providing me with edutainment!
