Learn everything about Earth in 7 minutes
Short on time? These guys have a solution
Created by Kurzgesagt – a team of journalists, designers and musicians who make short videos explaining quite complicated things, such as the universe, time and the stock market – this video runs through everything from the Earth’s birth, through to its composition and future threats to its existence. It’s been viewed over 73,000 times. In their own words:
Planet Earth is this solid thing you are standing on right now. In your everyday life you don’t really waste a thought about how amazing this is. A giant, ancient, hot rock. How did it come into existence and how big is it really? You will be surprised. The ground you are standing on is just a very, very small part of the big picture.
What else can they tell me?
With over 200,000 subscribers to their YouTube channel, the Kurzgesagt team can quickly explain how your immune system works, give you a speedy but comprehensive lowdown on Fracking, run you through the history of the Internet in just over six minutes and then give you a seven minute lesson on “The History and Future of Everything”.
