    Man, that last speech, was so beautiful and so right, we are nothing and
    yet look what we’ve done, where we’ve gone and the things we’ll do. We are
    nothing, but science has taken us far and it will continue leading us to be
    greater. I <3 science.

    Five years ago he told us we can’t touch anything. Now he asks if it’s ok
    to touch something? OF COURSE FUCKING NOT. In order for us to touch Mars,
    we will have to apply TONS of pressure until our atoms break and the
    electromagnetic force isn’t strong enough to keep the negatives away from
    negatives and positives away from positives. Gosh Vsauce, get your facts

    Hey Vsauce, how about you start making videos frequently like before?

  19. Stephen Sims says:

    We are a sentient part of the universe. We are quite literally the universe
    getting to know itself. We are the only species on this planet with the
    capability to ponder the greater mysteries of existence itself. We must
    become a multi-planetary species, if we want to avoid any number of
    inevitable extinction events. If the history of life has taught us anything
    about what meaning we have, it is indisputably, that life is survival. If
    we go extinct, nothing we did, or would have done, matters. We must
