  • I discovered the sun. Reason. I can see the heat of the sun using my two eyes. The sun exploded through my eyes and spinning like a wheel in a car and it turned very fast. The sun changed it colors white and black. It forms like a hole. It's true and real.

  • The sun is literally a black hole and a white hole. It's true and real.

  • It's 1octillion

  • Ok.....

  • so i can turn myself into a bomb that can destroy the planet?

  • Guys a Toyota Corolla is 15 feet 2 inches long okay

  • Question: Is it possible a black hole can consume a universe?

  • Everybody gangsta til scientists name something "Destroyer of Worlds".

  • TON618 is the biggest black hole that can fit 1.3 million solar systems

  • they discovered black hole ton 618. ton 618 has mass of suns

  • I didn't understand any of these sizes until the Toyota Corolla's were mentioned. Finally, a measurement system that makes sense.

  • Do BHs ever become unstable , and explode?

  • The number in <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="360">6:00</a> is.. 1.566 Decillion

  • Please pin this comment to answer peoples questions

  • behemoth

  • I love holes

  • Why the hell someone wants to transform himself into a blackhole ?

  • hydraulic press channel: hold my beer

  • Io 🌒 moon or Jupiter📡 🌎 hey Iisra what man-haten I found a new planet and I named it earth

  • Schwarzschildraduis😂😂 Any Germans out there?👀

  • Its not schwarzs child Its schwarz shield

  • Commentator sounds like mittensquad channel

  • Wrong! My BBC has been in many wet black holes and managed to get out just fine, thank you. 😶

  • Actually the smallest atom is the helium atom

  • Toyota Corolla, Central Parks, Continents of Europr. American will measure with anything instead of the metric system

  • What about ton618?

  • How can anything orbit a black hole if its gravitational pull is so powerful, like our own galaxy's black hole? Serious question, btw. Thanks!

  • This guy definitely has a Toyota Corolla

  • You name the smallest black hole we know of, to then tell us that there are "even bigger beasts" out there. Too much lore, too little reality

  • I'm going for heat no gravi6t

  • Black hole : i'm the densest thing on thr universe Harem anime protagonist : let me introduce myself

  • For anyone who's curious, the numver of Toyota Corollas at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="361">6:01</a> is (rounded up) 1.6 Octillian

  • I thought there would be some innovative way to visualize the scales but instead just repeated the same numbers that one can find anywhere but with a a few more superlatives and a incredulous tone of voice

  • how the fuck is it made possible by sponsors does it cost more than $5,000 to make a decent video like this???

  • Biggest black hole is TON618

  • but what happens if you crush the black hole

  • How many football fields?

  • Corolla of Worlds

  • I literally was scared to death seeing that thumbnail

  • The names of these stars looks like a code that i would need to use to access a gift card.

  • I don't believe this scale.

  • on 5 mininite of video it say 1,56 octillion number

  • what’s the background music at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="321">5:21</a>

  • The supermassive black hole at the centre of the milky way is called Sagittarius A* (A star). Nice video, the scale of things in the universe is literally out of this world, absolutely mind-boggling.

  • I wasn’t scared of that last black hole until they added the plus 81

  • scientist 1: what shall we call this black hole? scientist 2: *SMASHES HEAD ON KEYBOARD*

  • *Brain has left the chat*

  • I am the only one that have panic fear of black holes? I would shit myself if I was facing any black hole

    • I mean it's like playing agar. Io you know

  • 3.386xE-22 For comparison the smallest distance possible isn1.6xE-32

  • This is somewhat useless since most people cant even picture the mass of 1 sun let alone 40 billion

    • That's not true. You're projecting.

  • Why do you talk like an automated voice?

  • How did these black holes start existing?

    • It's just nature. There's a lot of matter out in the universe, and if enough accumulates the mass will create gravity so strong that the escape velocity will be greater than the speed of light. Which as far as we know is the fastest thing in the universe. For example the escape velocity for Earth is 11.2 km/s.

  • Does density effect gravity since the total mass didn't change?

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="1">0:01</a> flat earth confirmed

  • One octillion, five hundred and sixty-six septillion, sixty-eight sextillion, nine hundred and seventy-seven quintillion, eight hundred and ninety-seven quadrillion, eight hundred seventy-seven trillion, one hundred and eighty-five billion, two hundred and thirty-three million, one hundred and twenty-six thousand, nine hundred and sixty-one.

  • Omg I can’t be scared at that it’s so cute!!! <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="222">3:42</a>

  • You do realise that black holes are just hypothetical celestial bodies, that no math support it existence

  • The question now is.... How many Toyota Corollas is a Central Park ?

  • We don't know if certain one's exist, but know it's radius, and mass? Did they create a radius, calculate mass content, and then say they're looking for an unknown that matches based on orbiting systems and lack of sight in the center of the systems? Or is the claim just that ridiculous? Because the way it was worded was strange to me.

  • Yo what is the biggest black hole(from it's radius)actually? Is it S5 or TON 618?

  • As big as cardi bs ass

  • Are there things with a Swartzchild radius smaller than the plank length? What would happen if we tried to make those things into black holes?

  • 3000

  • What is the math for the mass of the supermassive black hole compared to a blueberry pancake 🥞?

  • I wonder how you came across those conversions.

  • @TheRogueTitan

  • "It has the mass of 40 billion suns. To understand that, take the mass of the sun. Now multiply that by 40 billion." Very helpful ^_^

  • Scientists have created quantum sized black holes in labs but no massive explosion. Anybody? Anybody?

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="309">5:09</a> correction ** The Entire KNOWN Universe

  • S5 0014+81 is 12.1 billion light years away. It is the brightest object in the universe which is known as a blazar. But we are seeing what it looked like 12.1 billion years ago. It might not even exist anymore or it could just be a black hole floating in empty space.

  • The mass of it in Toyota Corollas is …1.5 octillion Toyota Corollas ,amazing

  • joe mama is inside that toyota

  • SJJJ-6161717+7713.8112

  • science for you tuberz...pass.

  • How did I miss this video for so long.

  • Scientist 1: Hey man, I found a new black hole, what should we call it? Scientist 2: Idk, slap the keyboard a couple times Scientist 1: Ok

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="355">5:55</a> why?

  • Agario, but coming to life.
