    I just saw your "The Ultimate Conspiracy Debunker". It's great! More of this! Make a full skeptics guide to the Universe! Or just animate one that already exists. You could really help the world if you would increase skepticism and help fight against the real harmful pseudo-woo-woo's, example: Vaccination-denialism. Thank you. :) Love your vids.

    Hello +Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell. I have been watching your videos recently, and i can clearly see how much work that have gone into these products. I want to thank you, for all the knowledge you have given me (and some of my friends) recently. Now, i am just a basic man who is studying, so therefore (even though i would love to) i can not help you with any money, even though i know that that is the thing you would appreciate the most. But i am sorry, that this cannot happen. Still, i am certain to tell you that i have a great pleasure in watching you videos. Thank you.

    i may have found an error in the neutron star video. what density are you using for your iron cube? using what wikipedia gives for pure iron (7.874 g/cm3) the density of the sugar cube sized piece of neutron star is about 10x denser than the range given on wikipedia of 3.7e17 to 5.9e17 kg/m^3. to maintain the same sized iron cube, you'd need to distribute that mass over.. like 7 sugar cubes? i think. i might be way off at this point. i probably screwed something up. my cat is asleep on my feet, so i had to work it out on paper in an awkward position. p.s. love your videos.

    Hi +Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell Today I ran into one of your videos on a Dutch website (dumpert.nl) and was, from that moment on, completely hooked to your channel. The videos on your channel have the incredible power to make every topic/subject extremely interesting and teaches me far more in five minutes than most lecturers on my university do in 2 hours. I am convinced that more people of all social layers should have the ability to watch (and actually understand) your videos and I am willing to help your channel emerge in the Netherlands where I currently live. I think that I can translate most/all of it into Dutch to create either subtitles or voiceovers. This would allow children but also adults that can't follow the pace of your speech to understand your videos. Let me know if you are interested in working together, my e-mail is: levinegabriels@gmail.com

    Though there isn't a very pressing need for the general public to know this its interesting and you should still do a video on it "Why we age and what we can do to stop it?" (in other words become immortal). There are two ways that I know of that will give us the best chance in the near future. 1.Nanobots - we age because each time our cells split the ends on out DNA frays a little until finally the DNA comes apart and the cell dies, this general effects the organs first causing them to shut down and possibly killing the owner. But there are some animals that can control this using certain enzymes (like some jellyfish) and even some humans have cells that can split indefinitely, unfortunately these cells tend to form into cancer. So we require two things to become immortal, a system to deliver the enzymes that control aging, something to controlling the out break of any cancer that may occur. Nanobots can do both. Source - How will nanobots change medicine? 2. Robotic bodies - this is a more simplistic idea, create a robot that can directly communicate to the human brain then place the brain in the robotic body to replace its aging human one or go even further and have your mind digitized and remove the complications of having a brain, then just sit back and enjoy eternity.

    Hey, *Kurzgesagt*, You could do a *video about capitalism, and its inherent flaws*, including the externalities it simply cannot deal with, like ecology (forests, topsoil, freshwater, oceans, wildlife, etc.), *its inherent wastefulness* (see planned obsolescence, peak oil) and *its inherent self-contradiction* concerning automation (i.e. mechanization/automation is profitable for individual companies, but exponential automation leads to technological unemployment, resulting in shrinking consumption, and thus, recession). All the while, we can already produce enough food for everyone, but monetary system denies access to it (Source: FAO, 2002). And finally, you could elaborate on *Resource Based Economy*, as the only sustainable alternative socio-economic system.

    i have a great difficulty with the concept of time! sapparently 13.7,000,000,000 there was a big bang. it just doesnt seem long enough to have formed all of the observable universe! couple with the fact that time, as we measure it, runs at a different rate on earth as it does in space, this means that big bang could possibly be even less time than we previously thought! Can you do a video that would satisfy my addled brain? love & peace fellow humanoids x

After watching your videos about the internet and the history of the universe I was wondering if anyone knows this. After reading some stuff (which kinda argued with itself). Thank You for reading if you did read it. Also if you already did this video I can't find it.

    You don't really include enough numbers for us to have a clear understanding of the scale of things. Also, when talking about Pluto, can you at least include what position it is relative to the Sun? Since it has a highly elliptical orbit, it's not really clear when you use pluto's distance from the Sun as a comparison. I love how much effort you put into presenting the information in an aesthetically pleasing way. Props to whoever is on the design team!
