    Saw you on Comet. I had a topic I was hoping you'd discuss. Since scientists have pretty much proven that what we perceive does not exist (and you'll find many animes, cartoons, comics, and movies you can quote on this subject) and is really only our mind's way of filtering information from an unfathomable universe, does ANYTHING really happy because of science? Or does science only operate the way it does because we expect it to? And does it operate the same for everyone, or do we each have out own individual perspective? Starting with maybe I see brown as you see blue, but we both point at the sky and agree, it's blue. Maybe I see you as being made of macaroni and cheese and you see everything as being made of stars instead of atoms, but again, we agree on it and call it the same thing. A good example for explaining this might be how Gwenpool views the Marvel universe. Because... science?

    I got a glass kettle and noticed that on the bottom as it starts to boil, the air bubbles dance around and sometimes it's for a number of seconds before they grow and shoot to the surface, why is that? I can only think that hot water is rising but cold is coming down and pushing down on the bubbles..

    Hey can i ask a question, i have been wondering for a long time now, if punching and sliding with a sword moves air molecules away slightly, how fast and or how much force would you have to punch or slice in order to make the air hit people from a distance and potentially kill them? I know that in an anime type op character duel ground shockwaves and this stuff would be useless since only there direct attacks have the strength to beat each other but it would be interesting to know how much it would take for it to hurt normal people.

    Question, Could you "Free Fall" into superlumious speeds? You can't accelerate beyond c because of mass, but what about falling into an ever increasing, infinitely increasing mass, ie a black hole. If the black hole always has more mass and you fall into it at constantly increasing speed then you should eventually exceed C. And what would that mean?

    • subzero 2525
      subzero 2525 5 days ago

      I think that the shells would travel faster since there's less particles in mar's atmosphere for it to slow it down. Also the tanks would slightly launch in the opposite direction when they fire. Good question btw. I would love to see an episode like that.

    If a Vulcan went to the Star wars universe would it be able to use the force because it is telepathic?

    • Jeff Good
      Jeff Good 5 days ago

      I think The Force is omnipresent in the multiverse. The Vulcan's understanding of it is still in it's infancy. Likely because they are still too full of themselves to find their way as far down the path as a Jedi Knight. Vulcans are a proud and arrogant race as far as I've ever seen them portrayed.And it's taken centuries to get that far from whence they came = )I think it's a big yes to your question, and that's why, for whatever that's worth

  • Kevin Tibble

    Question Kyle How is Vibranium shaped? Since it absorbs kinetic energy and trying to mold it by melting it or just applying force to it (which you would need to create the nanocomposite springs in Black Panther's suit) would just result in it absorbing the heat, would shaping the suit even be possible? Also, does Vibranium have a maximum energy level? What happens when it exceeds that level without a way to release it? Would it explode or atomize? They did the question of punching Superman into the sun in All-Star​ Superman Thanks love your channel.

    Some theoretical spaceship engines use nuclear explosions as propellants. 1. Would the acceleration be deadly to humans? 2. Are there materials that could withstand these blasts for extended periods of time so you could push off the explosions intact? 3. Would it be better to use lots of tiny explosions or a few bigger ones in order to reach the highest speeds the most efficiently and in the easiest to control way?

  • RedRoy Productions
    RedRoy Productions 11 days ago

    There is a scene in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, where Jack Sparrow and his two companions are hanging on an anchor as two opposing walls of water come crashing down upon them. My question is, since the crests of the walls seemed a good 20'+ above Jack, and Jack was a good 10'-15' above the other two, shouldn't that have been equivalent to getting sandwiched between two vehicles going at highway speed? Since the surface tension of water is relatively high and the sudden change in atmospheric pressure between sea level and 20'-40', or more below it, shouldn't there be some pretty strong forces acting upon their bodies? However, they just get dredged up, still holding onto the anchor, soaking wet, none the worse for wear. I know "because movies", but that seems like something that is so obviously a bad day for anyone in that situation, as for me to question why no one else seems to have noticed.

    Hey Kyle, A question for you: If "Second Impact" (The coverup used in the Anime series Evangelion) was to actually happen as described in the series. Wherein an asteroid 10mm in diameter struck Mt. Markham, in Antarctica at near the speed of light (c 90-99%). Causing an explosion upwards of 18 billion megatons, instantly vaporizing the ice sheets, mega-tsunamis moving at 27km/s and massive rainfall from the condensed water vapor. All combined killing 2 billion people in the southern hemisphere. What would the real world effects be if this actually happened and would it match up to the events described in the series?

    I was watching GOTG Vol. 2, and had a thought. Actually, I had two thoughts. First, if Ego is a planet and gravity still applies how is there space in his core, areas to fly around in and not solid rock, second, near his core shouldn't the gravity be extremely dense/high?

  • Lucas Mitchum
    Lucas Mitchum 18 days ago So, watching this video gave me a thought, and I was wondering what you might think. What if, instead of just plasma, there is actually a telescopic pole in the hilt of a lightsaber that gets heated up to the point of giving off heat and energy, the instant it gets released? And stuff like keiber(?) crystals simply are like batteries*? Because, when you look at it and think about it, how realistic is it to have lightsaber duels that you can actually push people around, sword against sword (or saber against saber) as if they were solid objects? Because last I've heard/seen, plasma isn't solid. Solids are solid. Plasma is plasma. And unless there were some sort of core to the lightsaber "blade," is it realistic to assume lightsaber blades are just purely magnetically-contained? Would it not be easier to have some sort of metallic core that could heat up really quickly, and that gives off a discernable color? *(and maybe are of some chemical nature that give lightsabers their color? A slight tangent. Idk how realistic that is. But maybe it could be like using different gases in, say, neon lighting? And the different crystals, when heated, give off different colors based on their chemical composition?)

    Hello I stumbled upon something in a science fiction story which I was wondering if you can explain its this idea that if you submerged the human body in water you can withstand incredible acceleration forces the movie event horizon use something like this but it also appeared in Jules verne's from the earth to the moon and the 1959 television series, men into space. Does this phenomenon actually work? if so why? and Why aren't we employing it in real lunches?

    Hey kyle! you said that the Amazonian sword of wonder women is a photon weapon that cut through molecular level, in a previous episode. And in the Wolverine:Origin story arc there is a Katana Blade called the Muramasa Blade that has same properties(I guess). So what will happen if the to blades collapse. Will they cut through each other or will something else happen?

    Hi Kyle! I recently watched Independence Day Resurgence (terrible film by the way) but there's a scene that stuck with me which I'd like you to discuss. When the Alien "mother ship" appears above earth it is freaking enormous. It literally covers the top of the planet. I couldn't help but wonder....Surely, being that X amount of mass latched onto the earth, this would have an effect on the Earths orbit of the sun amongst other things? Because the spacecraft lands i'm guessing it's exerting force onto the planet in a certain direction? would the results be as catastrophic as what we see in the film....or worse? Please discuss :) :)

  • S.F. Edwards
    S.F. Edwards 24 days ago

    Hi Kyle- Something for you to consider, what if a light saber actually is using a core of Negative Matter, not Anti-Matter, contained in a magnetic field? The byproduct could then be a low energy plasma field, hot enough to cauterize, but not light the room of fire and the majority of the lightsaber actions could still work. Negative Matter, NM, is theorized to act against regular matter by pushing it away and by effectively acting in opposition to normal Newtonian physics. If swung with a weak force it would impact a surface and bounce back, instead of embedding, as seen in the films, but when swung with enough force would nearly slice through an object by simply forcing the molecules out of the way. Then the plasma sheath byproduct would sear the edges of the slice/impact. This would also explain the saber lock, as the NM would, upon breaking through the plasma sheath, counter intuitively latch onto the other core, and the way to disengage would be to push the blades together instead of apart, again as seen in the films (light touches of the magneto-plasma sheath deflect, but there almost always seems to be a push with the sabers to get them to disengage). BTW Aero Engr by training, keep up the good work my brother.

    • S.F. Edwards
      S.F. Edwards 21 day ago

      Thinking about this more a thought just occurred to me. That is the point of the kyber crystals, they are Negative Mass (NM) objects, or are able to store and focus NM atoms. This could also help to explain how the Death Star Super Laser works. The massive Kyber Crystals make the DSSL act like a light saber, all the beams converging, but once they reach critical mass they focus and release a massive amount of NM into the target, this bores a hole into the planet and creates an explosive effect as the NM expands outwards at a significant percent of C, tearing the planet apart. The use on NM in Star Wars tech could also explain many other aspects of their technology, hyperdrives (and how they can leak). NM could be used much like Element Zero in Mass Effect, to lower the effective mass of a ship and allow it to reach the speed of light where it can enter hyperspace. It could also be used in repulsor lifts, shields, etc... and maybe to explain why/how starfighter maneuver like aircraft in an atmosphere.

    How do graboids move so fast through the ground in Tremors? Supposedly they move using spurs on their bodies. Similar to an earthworm. They are massive though and it feels like they have a relatively small number of spurs for their size to achieve those speeds. While we are at it, would graboids really be able to accelerate as quickly as they do in the movie(s) under ground? And where does the displaced dirt go as they burrow? You never see signs of them moving unless they are directly below the surface. Furthermore, what you do see is something akin to a beach ball just under the surface of a pool moving rapidly. Wouldn't more dirt be flying through the air with something that massive, moving that quickly just barely under the ground? Surprise Tremors suggestion!

    hey because science team! i have a problem. on faceboot, there is a picture showing a forklift that penetrates a steel beam. picture: and the discussion went from NEVER!!!!!!!!!! to maybe possible. so here is my question: is it? (i think it is) the data: forklift: 3000kg speed:15 km/h (maybe more or less, i dont know) fork diameters: 80 x 10 mm (its smaller in the front, maybe 50 - 60) steel has a dense of maybe 450N/mm² (maybe less because its not a good quality they use in construktions.) fork steel shoul`d be more. 500 - 600n/mm² woul´d be great too see that in your channel!!! love all the videos. greetings from austria! marcus

    Hey Kyle, something to consider for your Black Panther suit video. If you take a bottle of carbonated beverage, crack the seal just enough to release the pressure inside, then reseal it. Now take this depressurized bottle as a representation of the Black Panther suit. If you hit the bottle, it starts to release some of the carbon dioxide from inside the beverage, keep doing this and you can feel and hear the difference in tone of the bottle as the gas pressure starts to build back up. If you think of this in terms of the film, and the stored kinetic energy being built up in the suit, the release of energy is in essence no different than loosening the cap once again to dispel the pressure inside the bottle. Let me know your take on this please, I'd love to hear your thoughts. Congrats on the new channel, keep the content rolling.

    Hello Kyle, I am proposing a challenge of sorts for you to see if it's realistically possible. There is a Light novel by the name of A Certain Magical Index with power users( ie espers) have their abilities rooted in scientific explanation, one of the main explanation behind Espers is 'manipulating the microworld to effect the macroworld through quantum physics.' Or something like that, I'll admit I don't understand the actual explanation myself all I know for sure is that it works along that line of thought I'm not sure if you do series like these but I figured that out of them this would be fine because of the idea that these abilities are possible because of scientific explanations rather then fictional reasons. If your interested and want more information you can easily send me a personal message. While I am not expecting this series to be accurate I am curious to what 'step' will the explanation go from science to fiction.

    Question: If the Flash used his "Infinite mass punch" on the Black Panther, would it do anything? Because the Black Panther's Vibranium suit can absorb the Kinetic energy from various forces, how much can it handle before it deconstructs on an atomic level? In simpler terms, can Vibranium absorb the force of the Flash's fastest punch?

  • Thomas Hladký
    Thomas Hladký Month ago

    So, how to begin ... Ok, for first place: love your vids and your sheer wide size of knowledge, the second thing is: What's your opinion about time traveling and time loops in original manga All You Need Is Kill or film based on it (On edge of tomorrow), and if you have some theory about the work with tachyons (tachyons have been lately considered as unexisting), and their effect on brain /memory. For me ... the question of the effect of tachyons looks simple, it's almost same as the explanation of the space mining ship's light speed and stasis called Red Dwarf from the series Red Dwarf, that being said . . . the ship is composed of tachyons or covered in tachyon bubble, which allows the ship to travel with the speed of light or through the time if the same would work for your brain (specifically your memory cortex), you could keep memories from yesterday . . . probably. PS.: The movie has little different mechanics, but the basics are mostly the same, except what allows time travel is alien/mimic blood, not exactly tachyons. Thanks if you'll correct me or even feature these problematics.

    I think a video on Titanfall would be well deserved but also interesting. Similar to the Attack on Titan episode, it would involve G forces and momentum as well as their impacts on the body but it would be different in results due to the fact that at times pilots come to complete stops after racing at a break-neck pace. not only could the video be on the Gs experienced by pilots but even the sort of mechanisms or forces needed to use the sort of weaponry that the game offers.

    Greetings Kyle. Congratulations on the success and growth of Because Science. Love watching all of your videos. I have a nerdy question for you. Do you think we will every see Mechs like in Mechwarrior or Battletech? Hollywood, back in the early 90's did the movie "Robot Jox"... How feasible would it be to make a mech and why do you think we don't have them yet?

    Hey Nerdist! I've got a question that's been bugging me since elementary school! In a episode of Magic School Bus, Ms Frizzle takes the class to Pluto where Arnold ultimately takes his helmet off and is encased in ice. He later gets a cold for doing so but obviously the real world would be much less forgiving. So, my question is, now that thanks to science we know exactly what Pluto's atmosphere, pressures and temperatures are, what WOULD happen to Arnold?

    Couldn't the color of the hair/aura be produced by secreting the materials through their hair/body to give off that color effect and wouldn't that make more sense since than situational atmosphere i think nitrogen is inert as in no color atleast in a combustion engine so basicly in our atmostphere it would be as what we see before transformations which is usuallly a distinct yet colorless aura from almost everyone else? any comments?

    Not sure if this has been answered elsewhere or not. Space Battleship Yamato or Starblazers. What exactly is the wave motion gun? is it a giant capacitor that fires a giant laser cannon/laser beam or is it more like a giant particle accelerator like CERN? And exactly how would the damn thing work? How much energy/fuel would this thing consume/produce? Loved this show as a kid and the science/engineering of it is really interesting :p

    Here's a suggestion: What would it take for a Dragon's fire breath to actually be a stream of Chlorine Triflouride (ClF3)? What kind of biology would that take? I'm imagining three glands myself, two in the chest to purify two chemicals that can mix into ClF3, and one in the jaw that actually does the mixing while expelling said chemicals with some sort of specially designed tubing to aim it... This could even give rise to some dragon myths, such as the flame breathing lungs (misunderstood glands in the chest), and raising the head to inhale in preparation for expelling the fire (tilting the head back to enhance the flow between the glands in question).

    "What is the Force?" It's hard sci-fi! What if it's an aether-like medium local to the Star Wars galaxy. It creates pressure and mild temperatures, even in space (allowing spacewalks without spacesuits, as we've seen in ESB, Rebels, and TLJ). It allows the wings on X-wings to actually do something outside of atmosphere. It explains how sound is transferred during space battles. It makes space much more habitable than in our galaxy, allowing broad colonization.

    Hi Kyle. A question for you… How does a creature with such corrosive liquid for blood like Xenomorphs could have been able to exist in real life? If their blood does not coagulate what would happen to them if they suffer a cut? Every secretion like their saliva, pee or poo should be corrosive too? If there would be any scientific chance for nature to create a living xenomorph how would it really be without the fiction?

    • scairax

      the xenomorphs blood probably only becomes corrosive after reacting with a element in the air as for the rest no idea

    I was just watching latest episode of BS... Khem... BeSci... Yeah. Let's roll with BeSci... Anyway... In one scene you say that Vader would have to repel drool of xenomorphs using force... That spawned a question actually about that in me brain. Does using force wear force user... Like does one get tired? In theory you exert force and by that you do work... So energy is used but looking at the movies and games... That doesn't seem to be the case. So... Question: "Does force use exhaust user to a point where a single file drool of xenomorphs (they always hide their numbers... Yep... I'll show myself out) would wear down force user and overpower him/her anyway?".

  • Travis Kopp

    OK, I want to see if we can challenge the "Because Scienceverse" a little. Is there a model for a lightsaber that doesn't include explosions of flesh? Is there some way that a lightsaber could be shielding the vicinity from that heat and instead using the heat for another purpose? The only reason I question this is based on methodology from the channel. You typically reference the fantasy material directly for measurements and effects, and then explain how those could be plausible with science. We have no instance of someone exploding when hit with a lightsaber, so could there be an explanation that uses the source material's effect? Maybe there's some way that the lightsaber is using magnetic forces to create an impossibly thin cutting edge and the heat isn't the main source of its cutting power? SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS BEING ITS OWN CHANNEL! Thank you Kyle and the Because Science team for making such great stuff!

    • gisdings
      gisdings Month ago

      I don't think that it allows the brain to think faster, I had the impression that "only" the receptions are sped up, so time appears to be faster only you can't change anything like in a movie. It's still a drug used for escapism. When we see we have a little time delay because our brain needs to interpret the footage from our eyes if the drug were to disable this interpretation... maybe this is a protoidea how the drug works.

    • Jeremy Manuel

      Kyle does a segment on the new Bill Nye series time travel episode that kinda might explain how a drug like that would work.

    • Matter Beam
      Matter Beam Month ago

      It probably accelerates brain activity. However, we are not machines that can be 'overclocked'. Increased brain activity just means epileptic crisis. And even if it were controlled, faster thought means more glucose is needed to feed the brain, which creates more waste heat. If Slow-Mo really allowed us to think x1000 faster... our brains will boil inside the skull.

      There are real world examples of animals taking weeks to digest their prey, such as the largest pythons or the sloth. A person trapped inside the Sarlacc pit will suffocate, drown in digestive juices, be crushed by stomach muscles or die of dehydration in increasing order of time.

      Saw you on Comet. I had a topic I was hoping you'd discuss. Since scientists have pretty much proven that what we perceive does not exist (and you'll find many animes, cartoons, comics, and movies you can quote on this subject) and is really only our mind's way of filtering information from an unfathomable universe, does ANYTHING really happy because of science? Or does science only operate the way it does because we expect it to? And does it operate the same for everyone, or do we each have out own individual perspective? Starting with maybe I see brown as you see blue, but we both point at the sky and agree, it's blue. Maybe I see you as being made of macaroni and cheese and you see everything as being made of stars instead of atoms, but again, we agree on it and call it the same thing. A good example might be how Gwenpool views the Marvel universe.

      Hello Kyle! I love the Antman movie, and the trailers for the sequel have me excited, but can you explain how the theory of Pimm particles shrinking space between atoms is also somehow adding or decreasing weight, when the mass of the object remains unchanged? Example from new trailer: How can the mass and weight of a building be easily carried off like luggage? Its so frustrating when I watch the clear inconsistencies. Maybe I'm missing something.

    In Don Rosa's Donald Duck comic, Gyro Gearloose invents a substance called the Universal Solvent in a story named after it. Unfortunately, Scrooge McDuck pours it on the ground, and it quickly eats its way into the core of the Earth. The ducks then *spoilers* dive after it, collect it, and save the world. But what would really happen to Earth if such substance would dissolve its core?

      Hey, you can't just change the question to answer it. The story goes as he's told, so the "Universal Solvent" does eat trough the ground. Not being mean, but that's not how I've learned to answer totaly ridiculous and fictional questions. ;)

      Universal solvent doesn't also mean that it cannot be saturated. Sugar dissolves very well in water, but add too much and the extra sugar stays dry. So, this small quantity of universal solvent will dissolve some of the floor.. then saturate and do nothing.

    Hey Kile, I love your realistic explanation of things: would you cover this topic and perhaps either prove them right and then make me look like a fool: just go to this facebook post...if I turn out to be wrong, let me know, if not, that's what I am trying to solve...I really hate how people say, oh I have read the biggest science articles, and then sometimes they don't even do that, and they come up with some vague idea in how to phrase their words to seem like they understand if you follow my comments to that post, you will see what I mean, but to ask you here directly: IS IT TRUE THAT FIRE AGAINST A WALL DOES NOT "CAST" A SHADOW? If not, isn't that because of the anatomy of the Eye, which acts both ways as I tried to explain, but the reason the shadow is being canceled out is because at camera is acts like a one-way unlike the other words, the Eye should be able to see a Shadow but the Camera should not...please correct this honestly, I don't know why I bother going or reading UFO group post when I know I bound to find people who don't understand the reality of things.
