  1. Ok, phew. So we are done explaining any properties of black holes forever. If we ever talk about black holes in future videos we'll always link to this video. If you want to continue thinking about black holes a tad more, you can do so by getting one of the many black hole related things the Kurzgesagt team made with love:

  2. Question for you. Do singularity's have a maximum amount of matter it can hold before it goes boom?

  3. Good GOSH, this animation! Please tell your animators that their work is brilliant, a feast for the eyes: it's absolutely stunning, and gets better with every single video!

  4. The most astonishing part about this channel isn't that it's informative, or that it's surprisingly digestible for the layman. It's the fact that y'all are just so positive and uplifting about everything that makes these videos as pleasant to watch as they are informative.

  5. Hi könnt ihr mal was zu Dinosaurier machen zum Beispiel Dinosaurier mit Federn wie falsch Jurassic world ist 🙂

  6. Wait question arent particals and antiparticals basicilly anti-matter? Because the mass of the black hole doesnt just dissapear

  7. Unfortunately some of this information is wrong or presented in a misleading manner, the most striking falsity the statement about information loss

  8. Can you make a video what would happen if their was oxygen instead of nothing in space

  9. Is there a way a future civilian could safely turn earth around if it started drifting away from the sun?

  10. Black holes are amazing especially that we made an image of one 55 million lightyears away

  11. I have an idea, you should make a gaming channel/series, I would love to watch you play Kerbal Space Program!

  12. wait if everything dies. dose space remake themselves or are we just gonna be gone for good?

  13. Its my opinion that when black hole dies then a new universe starts. Look at big bang theory. something incredibly small did boom and all that was created! Look at atomic bombs. When atoms are used there they just- boom. Black hole is like a giant atom

  14. There r plenty of human black holes which r yet to be discovered by putting some different sizes "bananas" inside them.

  15. Once every thousand years, a bird flies to the mountain and sharpens its beak. When the bird has worn the mountain away, the supermassive black hole will have lost 0.000…~60 zeroes later..0001% of its mass.
