Videos explaining things with optimistic nihilism.

We are a small team who want to make science look beautiful. Because it is beautiful.

Currently we make one animation video per month. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook to get notified when a new one comes out.


- We do the videos with After Effects and Illustrator.

  • Wow, I have no idea why but this slightly depresses me :/

  • this didn't account for Rick and his portal gun

  • and beyond this universe, there is heaven. waouh

  • Love this!!!

  • Humans are gonna try to create ways to prevent death for yearssss before they realize God wont allow it

  • “The universe is putting off a great show for us, showing us a things that are out of reach forever.” This put like this, was a bit terrifying. 🤓

  • So experimental evidence for our theories will hold just for a definite amount of time. That makes me feel pointless. I should rewatch your video on optimistic nihilims.

  • Let’s get our shit together and put all military spending of earth into one space program! This would be a sum of roughly 2 trillion $US.

  • How to get an existential crisis in under 10 minutes...

  • Wow this might have taken a very long time to just animate and just so hard, being an animator myself I can imagine the pain and releasing it for free on ISprofile is really great love your videos, watching them from almost the beginning 💖💖

  • What is the earth is made of? Mostly poop.

  • In other words. Rock + rock = 9-5 job

  • '예를 들어, 닥 12명의 정규 팀만으로 Kurzgesagt은 수백만 명의 사람들에게 다가갈 수 있지만, 같은 수의 시청자를 가진 TV 방송국은 훨씬 더 많은 직원들을 필요로 합니다'라는 이야기를 듣고 현대의 자동화가 크게 와닿았습니다. 아주 먼 과거에서 지금까지 '일'은 인간이 살아가는데 당연히 해야 하는 생산활동이라고 생각해왔기 때문에, 자동화로 인한 편리함과 비례하여 실직으로 인한 두려움과 불안함이 클 것입니다. 따라서 앞으로 현대의 자동화로 인한 변화에 대비하고, '일'에 대한 정의를 다시 내릴 필요가 있다는 생각이 들었습니다.

  • It still fascinates me how people talk about The Big Bang Theory and how it all happened with such confidence...

  • Fun fact: Before people were able to figure out the distance to andromeda, they just thought it was a really fancy nebula. Because of this, "the galaxy" meant the same thing as "the universe". They thought that was all there was. Once people figured out that andromeda was really big and far away, they realized it was its own galaxy, and started looking for new ones. Some time in the future, it will be as if andromeda was never discovered to be a galaxy. People will think that our galaxy is all the universe holds.

  • For me the border I’ll never cross is the U.S border

  • I like that music

  • Ey shut up. Humanity will develop FTL technology. I know physics don't like that but like hell I care.

  • still mad that it's not gonna be called Andromilka

  • I love your transparency Kurzgesagt! It’s easy to make quality content nowadays. But honest, quality content? That’s a rare breed indeed.

  • All good Kurzgesagt. Great work all the same.

  • Thanks for your integrity at the last part!

  • I would like to say a theory about the earth’s crust

  • It's capitalism. Capitalism is the problem. Under any other economic system we wouldn't be compelled to produce so much waste in exchange for profit for the owning class.

  • I mean realistically the border for humanity is way way closer than that.

  • is this the little big planet narrator?

  • “We are fundamentally evil and selfish, if we did not have the system then we’d turn on each other like a pack of animals” I don’t know man, that’s funny as hell to me.

  • bro i love this channel so much

  • "unreachable" - it is because you still looking at the journey through the prism of speed and time

  • New Kurzgesagt video! Very cool!

  • Wont we too go beyond that threshold

  • Thank, I hate knowing this information. I will still hold out hope that we can eventually break the speed of light and if that is well and truly impossible then hope there is another dimension we can slide into to avoid our dying one.

  • Are we gonna die alone

  • Maybe we can cross the border if we master wormholes :)

  • Crazy how a year later we will have had both a slow and fast pandemic especially with what is happening in India right now.

  • I enjoyed the „See you later space cowboy” part of the video. Thamk.

  • Dear Kurzgesagt, Thanks for the depression and existential crisis :)

  • but if we could make a wrap drive it could possible to go out of the local group and reach the other galaxies right??

    • No, I don't want Warhammer's warp to come bite us all in the bum

  • So how does the dentritic cell choose between the antu virus and the bactiria killers? And can you please make a video of the anti virus cells part?

  • Existential dread

  • Noticed the magic school bus reference at around 9:20

  • If it makes you guys feel better, 99% of humans will probably never leave earth

  • That's fine. Us saying the universe is finite is like a singular atom saying the ocean ends. How? Where? Who knows.

  • please make a special video on milkyway Andromeda union , and if it disturb aur solar system let us know about various chances 😀

  • so what if we found a way to create portals

  • Small enough to see u dark futures

  • I'm now instilled with empathy for all humanity. I was - has been - could've been any human. Genetic quirks, environment that a person grow up in, are all very real differences - yet we are all mankind. This story reminds me of "Childhood's End" by Arthur Clark. It described a future of mankind, where all humanities are connected mentally. I now feel a very (cynical) love for mankind. Either I take this story literally or figuratively, the way I view the world has changed a bit.

  • Thank you for making such easy to understand and informative content! I love to learn more by these video's, kudos to the illustrators and factcheckers aswell! Great job!

  • If Quasi Stars are theorized to exist, why has nobody searched the places beyond the Cosmic Light Horizon to see it?

  • Kurzgesagt videos post-pandemic were full of grim. I'm glad they changed the style a bit.

  • So.... if the universe expanded from the size of a marble, to trillions of kilometers in diameter in a trillionth of a second.. wouldn't that suggest that all that expanding matter travelled faster than the speed of light?

  • This is the beauty of science. If there ever is a study or a finding, it is not immune from criticism. Because this very criticism is what will, more often than not, help in finding loopholes and possible errors. Unlike some ideas, this is true and will stand the test of time

  • Just imagine how 2000 years from now, they will be pitying us for believing we are stuck with our local group at best like we pity people from antiquity thinking they were stuck to their continent.

  • Nothing like a bit of existential dread in the morning

  • Too good of a vid

  • What is ISprofile trying to tell us?

  • How can everything come from nothing?🙄🤔

  • I have never want to believe his processe but I was so lucky to believe in *Lavejam on telegram* steps he sort all issues.

  • Dude, the video itself was amazing and whats even more stunning is, that you show the process of your work and how much you care by presenting your own mistakes and correcting them transparently. If politics worked like you did in this video, the world would be a better place. :D

  • Don't wormholes, theoretically since we are including sci-fi concepts that aren't currently achievable, break this concept though?

  • Portals?

  • moon terraforming moon terraforming MOON TERRAFORMING DO THAT VIDEO PLS!

  • What about wormholes?

  • basically don't nuke the moon

  • Thinking about a race of sentient beings billions of years into the future, looking back in envy at a culture of curious, conscious apes who had the wonder of a sky full of stars...

  • We need to know more and pull back together the universe and save it

  • we are seeing a light show of the past observable universe as an after image because theyre that fast

  • From the very beginning I thought "wait a minute.. I have seen this before". I really appreciate that u took the time and energy to redo the thing and even leavin tthe old one up.

  • Actually if we were ever to contact some type 3 civilizations, who are close enough to make contact but they also have tremendous knowledge and capabilities, they might be able to help us teleport to a distant area of the universe where we have never been. I mean, we always think we will never be able to do xyz, because it just sounds impossible from our perspective. Wright Brothers thought it would take a million years for planes to work, or something ridiculous like that. I'm just saying...there is a chance.

  • Stupid.. trying to talk about stuff you can't know about... it's bigger than you.....ego squared... not even a theory.

    • You sound like a crazy god fan

  • and once again I have an existential crisis, thanks, I love these videos!

  • "Fact-checkers." - I hope it's not Snopes. lol

  • Kinda sad that all of us will be dead by the time humans will even be able to travel light speed and etc.

  • Back again with another soul crushing, anxiety inducing, video. Love it.

  • Oh, I really want to meet the team of Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell, especially with the illustrators..

  • The universe could very well be collapsing on us, but we don't have enough information to figure it out, we're looking at the starts how they were billions of years ago, as long as light travels a fraction faster than the collapsing universe we would never see it coming and the big crunch would hit us without us knowing it.
