Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

Prije mjesec

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.

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.

I just had the opportunity to visit the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller, Alberta and I was pleasantly surprised to find multiple stations set up within the museum which were playing Kurzgesagt videos. These videos were custom made for the museum and I was curious if they would find their way to HRpost at some point?

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
Paul Gibbon
Paul Gibbon Prije dan
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".

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.

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
