    Peek into the past and learn about dinosaurs and other amazing creatures:

    Sources & further reading:

    66 million years ago, maybe on a Tuesday afternoon, life was the same as it had been the day before or a thousand years before or pretty much a million years before. Things were good for our feathered dinosaur buddies. Until a tiny, tiny detail in the sky changed.

      1. DaeAlex_

        i genuinely want everything off your shop i love it all!!

      2. .:Camper:.

        The Chicxulub asteroid dino extinction is just a theory, it isn't confirmed. I personally don't think an asteroid did that to the dinos.

      3. SlayneDaGreat

        You should make a video about declining sperm count and what it means for humanity. :)

      4. Angela C. Browning

        Loved the vid.

      5. Petty Aestheticcs

    4. Soepstengel

      Well, Einstein making the atom weapon is a fact

    5. Bronze-Hawk

      Man, this sucks. Not the video, the asteroid.

    6. IQ

      Most entertaining scientific channel on ROfor ❤

    7. TheJester

      Everyone: "yeeted to space" Captions: "heated"

    8. Toby George

      The boring lyocell kelly fancy because trout provisionally test but a inconclusive billboard. sick, sturdy sun

    9. Hecc Da Necc

      My profile pic is the reaction of dinosaurs to the big rock in the sky.

    10. Sholin Wright

      Generic fluffy garbage. Certainly your production skills can be used for a more rigorous presentation.

    11. Marianne rhxguyen

      The weary bowl ultrastructurally spray because camp extracellularly stain as a brown bowling. aware, standing collision

    12. Noel Lopez

      Growing up i always heard that Dinosaurs died 65 million years ago. Now I’m hearing its 66 million years from other sources. When did that happen? And how do we know?

      1. Stevetimes

        It's been one million years since you were born. :)

    13. Mòōón🌙

      'nobody would sleep through this day' the dinosaur at 5:07 :

    14. Noel Jr dela Cuesta

      The "yeet" is at around 5:26

    15. Arunava Bal

      1:37 the birds in dino costumes are excellent and super cute at the same time!❤💙


      Dino roid

    17. Arunava Bal

      The Kurzgesgat animations are just love!!❤💙💚💛

    18. William Benner

      I just thought dinosaurs went to hide 500k feet below underwater

    19. Liliāna Fricfelde

      am i the only one who cried??

    20. Marvin baloyi

      Apps when you factory reset.

    21. M1lesDoesStuff

      We gotta give a thumbs up for the cameraman

    22. Gary

      The end was so emotional :-/

    23. David Singleton

      Why didn’t we call it dino killing asteroid ?

    24. gustavo godoy

      "Earth was a pleasant place for millions of years" *"until it wasn't"*

    25. chilidemon

      Wat if they didnt die would we not exist or would they have evolved or something

    26. Cole Adams

      5:24 yeet

    27. Saruto Uzamaki

      So you're telling me there were no humans when this went down

      1. Aorta Vin

        Luckily not. We'd all likely have died lol

    28. Anush Antony

      Still doesnt explain why all bad things including Alien attacks happen in the americas. - what if we mammals are the aliens that came with the asteroid :D

    29. Paul Gibbon

      The interesting thing is how tremendously unlikely the collision was. If the asteroid starts wandering a little bit sooner or later, it drops into the Sun or comes to orbit Earth as a second Phobos-sized moon. If it had hit in a slightly different place (like other asteroids have over time), the immediate area is still disintegrated, and things are unpleasant for the rest of the world for a bit, but it's nowhere near an existential disaster. Something else worth noting is that just because a species survived the disaster doesn't mean that MANY of them survived. Species whose descendants now cover the world and number in the billions might owe their existence to a few dozen lucky survivors huddling in a cave, valley or the bottom of a lake. There's no particular reason why small mammals survived but small non-bird dinosaurs in the same niches and environments didn't, other than "luck".

      1. Aorta Vin

        We're both super lucky to exist, and super unlucky that this happened at all lol

    30. Deodath Mansook

      bruh i thought dinos died cuz of people

    31. Yzzy World

      Till this day..... i still dont know how to pronounce the channel's name been watching since 2017 lol, decided to come back

    32. Bunsen Honeydew

      Rarely anything good comes on a Tuesday afternoon.

    33. Suhas Addepalli

      i have an idea for a video: what if all black holes suddenly turned into white holes and ejected all material they previously contained

      1. Aorta Vin

        I'd love to see that.

    34. SongWriterSaturdays

      Am I the only one who can't get use to the idea of dinosaurs having feathers?

      1. Stevetimes

        No. I've been taught all my life that dinosaurs have scales, and apparently that's not right anymore.

    35. Pusheen the Cat

      Earth: Has beautiful life and ecosystems Chicxulub: *I'm about to ruin this man's whole career.*

    46. Edgars Hartmanis

      That is so sad danesor's died :(

    47. Arthur Gamla Schaskos

      "yeeted into space" sometimes, i think the script writers are just a bunch of german shitposters

    48. Arumay Salodia

      Insane!!! I like your videos

    49. Adrianne Marcos

      I think this is before God remade earth or something I dunno.

      1. Adrianne Marcos

        4:19 The dinosaur is gonna fall! OH, well that's gonna leave a mark

    50. Callum Conner

      As soon as I heard him say 'yeeted', I came straight down to the comments. I wasn't disappointed.

    51. Peter Knusprig

      Must have been a Monday!

    52. Leigh Ngo

      Ah yes, Titanotaurs (that actually sounds like an epic fantasy monster).

    53. Redent

      I like the Map of evolution

    54. Ashil 66

      RIP to all the dinosaurs who died for us

    55. DankyDoodly Dude

      Kurzgesagt i like about posters but you guys have so much knowledge bout earth then why papers? please guys chose a recyclable alternative to paper like stone paper which can be erased even if it is written by pen. i would really like to see kurzgesagt helping earth then making money.

      @yigithan.kilinc a çeviriler için teşekkürler :)

    67. Stavr Ognev

      It's your second video (out of ~hundred viewed) I dislike. Because you spend whole timing, banging on oversimplified "asteroid" factor, ignoring dozen of other. Including your own source about new form of plants, that slowly, but drastically changes the food chains: > Perhaps the most important of these events, at least for terrestrial life, was the first appearance of the flowering plants, also called the angiosperms or Anthophyta. First appearing in the Lower Cretaceous around 125 million years ago, the flowering plants first radiated in the middle Cretaceous, about 100 million years ago. Or other cyclic/stress factors, that actually made difference combined with asteroid. P.S. "Birds that are direct descendants of dinosaurs" - another over-simplified old theory. Modern studies look at dino-birds as concurrent spices (like Neanderthals vs Homo sapiens) for prehistoric modern-version-of-birds. And dino-birds looks like failed, because they was heavier, less adopted to hunt for small grass-eating mammals and flower-feeding insects.

      how dou you pronounce your name

    69. hog

      How is it possible that the quality of their work improved even more?!

    70. Greg Hansen

      Space is scary.

    71. UNE ODO

      This video made me love Dinosaurs again!

    72. Miss Sniper

      Internet culture is so powerful, some of its slangs made it into a scientific video.

    73. Momentais

      "Yeeted into space" is now a scientific term thanks to Kurzgesagt. Now I can say that to my science teacher

    74. joshclark756

      i dont get was it 65 0r 66 million years ago

    75. NoahS_64

      Bruh this made me feel bad for the dyno's :/

    76. iMunashe

      Can someone please tell me how the dinosaurs were made extinct but every other animal wasn't.

      1. Dante Fiore

        Small mammals and birds found places such as caves to hide and survive and being small didn't need a lot of food to survive the apocalypse meaning they lived once the ash was gone

    77. Helping Hand

      And during this whole event Cockroaches were on picnic 😂

    78. Elijah.

      3:07 jupiter once failed his job

    85. Tigerkei Art

      Never thought I'd hear the word "yeeted" in a scientific video

    86. Yasmin Nasser

      Shouldn’t it burn the dinosaur bones to ashes though??

    87. Noodle DaJuice

      Didn't we just discover that it was volcanic eruptions that killed them?

    88. SeriousNorbo

      Everybody gangsta till Kurzgesagt says *"Until it wasn't"*
