The original Limits of Humanity:

Is there a border we will never cross? Are there places we will never reach, no matter how hard we try? It turns out, there are. Even with sci-fi technology, we are trapped in a limited pocket of the Universe and the finite stuff within it. How much universe is there for us and how far can we go?

the Party of ONE says:

It’s “myriad super clusters” not “myriad of super clusters”

I thought you were smart enough to know basic grammar…but then again, you’re a bunch of pathetic Nazis

Gabriel PdeL says:

The universe is so great so we could have respect and consideration of our Creator in our common life. Nothing larger from that will come out from the universe; because that cause it’s large enough. If you try that path you’ll have peace and everything will come into place; then you will know why the universe is so great.

안은별 says:

Well never though i’d say this but i really feel bad for milkdromida people

relrafie says:

We just need to find that stargate!

Marina Gardner says:

Does this apply to wormholes and stuff should they exist? Like if traveling massive distances with wormholes is functionally instant would we be able to reach places that far?

DarkVoidDan says:

We don't even know if that is true and how would we know we have never reached another galaxy and you see stars glistening on a night so how can that possibly be from billions of years ago to not exist anymore.

Sam E says:

I believe in science but we do not know what technology and science will be discovered. Infact we know we don't know everything about science so this video is right for now but you never know what the future will hold

KARL B says:

Wow ❤😊 Love this One, Seeing the Future of Us

Андрей Боженко says:

We know that we don't know anything)

Everything might be possible) we just can't imagine it yet)

There is a barrier at the end of the … univers. We in a bubble of energy when the energy end.. the barrier crash us to the point again

Robert Lu Zheng says:

Mannnnnnn, this giving me more existencial crisis

Denny Lee says:

The universe isn’t speeding up away from us, time is just slowing down. Change my mind

HadesXY says:

4:35 like the dating pool

Humanity Galatica says:

"It's unlikely that we will colonize anything outside of our galaxy"
Why wouldn't we try?

Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell says:

Hey Everybody! So this video is a remake and remaster of an older video that has a mistake in it. You can watch the original here:
What is the mistake? In a nutshell: In the original video we said that it was PHYSICALLY impossible to leave the local group and reach other galaxy groups. That the rest of the universe is moving away from us too fast to catch up. But that’s wrong. It is not PHYSICALLY impossible to leave the Local Group, just extremely unlikely that we’ll ever do it.
BUT: If you have a lot of time and a fast spaceship you can still get to a limited amount of galaxies – these galaxies will eventually get out of reach forever but until then, they are technically within reach. So why did we keep the video up and didn’t purge it when we deleted our addiction and refugee crisis videos?
Well, it has to do with the nature and severity of the mistake: We did talk to a few astrophysicists to ask them what they thought and if we should take down the video. Their feedback was pretty clear, they thought it was still fine as the universe expansion things explained in the video are correct and they didn’t consider the local group thing as too major. This was actually a case of “good enough”.
Also, back when this original upload happened, Kurzgesagt was operating at pretty tight margins and just redoing a video was not easy for us. Back then the team was small and we were fighting to put new videos out. So we just swallowed the bitter pill and kept the video around.
But the video still bothered us, as far as we know this was the biggest unfixed mistake on the channel. Super frustrating, especially because the core idea of the video is so fascinating. The limit of our species. The actual limit. So yeah, we finally remade the video, sorry for taking this long, life got in the way.
The original video will stay up, you can compare the two if you want to see how far we have come in a few years in terms of production quality. All in all, we could only grow the channel and work on getting better because of direct support from you guys. So thank you for that. – Philipp
