    The Beginning of Everything -- The Big Bang

    5:55

    How did everything get started?

    Has the universe a beginning or was it here since forever? Well, evidence suggests that there was indeed a starting point to this universe we are part of right now. But how can this be? How can something come from nothing? And what about time? We don't have all the answers yet so let's talk about what we know.

    Also, we try to make this one not depressing. Tell us if we succeeded.

    Kurzgesagt.org

    BY THE WAY. We have a website now. We'll try to blog from time to time, show you guys how we make the videos and give more insight to our process. Also we sell stuff. We really don't know where this whole kurzgesagt stuff leads us. But we are really thankful for all the attention and positive feedback and yeah, maybe we can make this our jobs -- it would be pretty nice and we could do more content each month. But we'll see. For now, thank you very much everybody for making this little adventure possible.

    Thomas did an aweful good job again. :)

    Next Video: April. (as soon as we can but we kind of have to make a living and visit college) Topic: Nuclear Energy (probably, if we finish the research in time -- if not something else)

    Short videos, explaining things. For example Evolution, the Universe, Time, the Stock Exchange or controversial topics like Fracking. Because we love science.

    The Immune System Explained I – Bacteria Infection

    6:49

    Every second of your life you are under attack. Bacteria, viruses, spores and more living stuff wants to enter your body and use its resources for itself. The immune system is a powerful army of cells that fights like a T-Rex on speed and sacrifices itself for your survival. Without it you would die in no time. This sounds simple but the reality is complex, beautiful and just awesome. An animation of the immune system.

    We are thinking of making an App for tablets out of this video. Would you like that? Did you think the visual system we developed worked? Feedback is much appreciated!

    How Evolution works

    11:48

    The mechanisms of evolution explained in one video.

    The theory of evolution explains how the enormous variety of life could come into existence. How it is possible for primitive life forms to spawn the millions of different creatures, that exist today. Unfortunately, evolution is often misunderstood, because it's mechanisms seem counter intuitive. By using visualizations, infographics and appealing characters, the viewer is more likely to understand it the complex information. More than that, by presenting the information in an entertaining way, the information is more likely to sink in.

    Short videos, explaining things. For example Evolution, the Universe, Stock Market or controversial topics like Fracking. Because we love science.

    Fracking explained: opportunity or danger

    5:04

    Fracking explained in five minutes.

    Fracking is a controversial topic. On the one side the gas drilling companies, on the other citizen opposed to this drilling method. Politicians are also divided on the matter.
    We try to take a neutral look on fracking. It is relevant for all of us, because of high prices for energy and the danger for our drinking water.
    This video focuses mostly on the debate currently ongoing in europe. In a lot of european countries there is a public outcry against fracking, espacially in germany. But the facts in this video are relevant to all of us.

    Short videos, explaining things. For example Evolution, the Universe, Stock Market or controversial topics like Fracking. Because we love science.

    Nuclear Energy Explained: How does it work?

    Nuclear Energy is a controversial subject. The pro- and anti-nuclear lobbies fight furiously, and it's difficult to decide who is right. So we're trying to clear up the issue - in this video we discuss how we got to where we are today, as the basis for discussion. Next week we'll be looking at the arguments for and against nuclear power in detail.

    Flat Earth | The History of Outer Space Programming ▶️️

    13:29

    The History of Conditioning Humans to believe in the existence of Outer Space and Space Travel.

    Nowadays outer space is a given in everyones mind. It's virtually in every movie, video game, comic book, novel, and even music and tv shows. , causing mostly everyone to believe in outer space without question, eventhough they have never been there or seen it for themselves. Well, the truth is that we are being lied to about space travel and the very shape of our earth. Earth is a actually level & motionless plane and we've been systematically brainwashed into believing that we live on a spinning ball and that outer space is a real place that humans can go. Unfortunately for fans of outer space and space travel, it's all one big, elaborate hoax. Research Flat Earth.

    The Infinite Hotel Paradox - Jeff Dekofsky

    6:00

    View full lesson:

    The Infinite Hotel, a thought experiment created by German mathematician David Hilbert, is a hotel with an infinite number of rooms. Easy to comprehend, right? Wrong. What if it's completely booked but one person wants to check in? What about 40? Or an infinitely full bus of people? Jeff Dekofsky solves these heady lodging issues using Hilbert's paradox.

    Lesson by Jeff Dekofsky, animation by The Moving Company Animation Studio.
