mamacato says:

How long usually until there are subtitles? Waiting for Japanese specifically. Thanks to anyone who has any insight.

The Bomb says:

I'm literally terrified of space. Why am I watching this

M A N G O says:

If every singularity is the same, then does that mean a blackhole made with exotic matter would have mass, despite strange matter having negative mass?

Marbledself says:

Please do Meares Irlen syndrome next

Indra Arora says:

We would love if you add English subtitles 👍

Wait. What if we use a giganntic flashlight to send a lot of light Waves into the Black hole so we can probably See around us because we are also Being pullet in the Black hole as fast as the light…

LovelyMango says:

its crazy that every matter that enters a black hole like, giant starts, galaxies, everything is just stored in a single point, like a small dot on a paper, and thats not possible so just imagine the force needed to keep it together, honestly it scares me a lot

Physics Villain says:

Plz provide English subtitles

rollingdownfalling says:

This channel is German in disguise, interesting. Now I am curious whether the person who narrates the video is a bot, because it's just too perfect, then again the pronunciation for Kurzgesagt is also flawless so it may not be a bot generated voice coz they're normally bad at switching between languages. The narrative is pretty impressive.

Judging by caption, maybe you're Vietnamese living in Germany like Hazel who does Mukbang??

Jan Solo says:

So you say in a Black hole is another Dimension? The singularity is 1 Dimensional, the ringularity is 2d and everything Else is 3d (besides time)

Next video of Kurzgesagt:
"Why nuke a black hole its a bad idea, let's do it!"

Phil O says:

Space and time are constant, the way atoms experience space and time depends on their proximity to other atoms

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.
