  1. I’m amazed how many people watched this video and still think it’s about the poles flipping. It’s about a coronal mass ejection, which will fry the electric grid. Please pay attention and rewatch if you didn’t understand.

  2. I love to see you! Come to Perú I can show you our history and country …

  3. Sleepy Interface

    Geomagnetic storm? Maybe she means electric universe???

  4. Shall we bet on this?

  5. Very exciting days are coming.

    2019-2022 covid 2022-2023 Russia vs Ukraine 2025 solar flare

  6. Things DO happen to our bodies….the heart and the brain are deeply affected by geomagnetic storms and solar activity….

  7. it reminds me of James Dashner’s “The Kill Order”

  8. Also, the effect polar flip is not random. An object in motion will stay in motion unless acted on by an outside force. Not a 100% true statement, but generally useful for observation, esp. in space. It is the synodic cycle of Earth, Venus, and Jupiter that seems to trigger enough gravitational “tug” to trigger a pole flip. In other words, “when the planets align”.

    Can’t wait for it to happen

    Sounds like fun 😁

  10. Everytime I see one of your vids it strikes me anew : you keep writing amazing romcom scenes. PLEASE find yourself a Sheldon or a Bernadette, so you can light up eachother’s world in your shared excitedment and wonder! You’re like a museum tourguide to physics, but with the enthralling storytelling of Dr. Tyson and Sagan. You make this material EXCITING. I really wish I’d had a teacher like you in my youth. You are what I had at first hoped the big bang theory would one day become…. a voice for reason and wonder, curiosity, humility and a sense of scope. I assume you’ve seen the movie _Contact_ with Jodie Foster? You remind me of Dr. Arroway. A lot. Good for you 😉
