      what about how strange stars are contagious. if a strange star for some reason exploded . a neutron star falls into it and a piece of strange matter flies out. that piece hits our sun. it would start collapsing and converting matter in the star to strange quarks .

          Getting closer to the solution. Keep going all the way to Planck star which can form in SMBH core. Then consider the core breach via the poles as jets of Planck plasma. See

                Seriously? Perhaps. But not logical. On the other hand, an electrically powered universe can easily explain all that stuff.

                      See you are good at physics but trip over logic. Observation is a much better premise than just prediction.

                        Dear Matt, thank you for, as always, perfect video! Would you think about creating content about best hard-core sci-fi books? Maybe for a start take novel by Robert L. Forward "Dragon's egg"? It would be cool to hear your thoughts on the physics of the novel and maybe some cool visualisations... Ring world, smoke ring, integral trees and so on. It could be a cool series for the channel😊! Good luck to you guys!

                          The part where strange matter is the most stable form in the universe is a bit strange itself. Isn't that only in that extreme pressure? Since strange matter alone (Lambda-particle) is quite unstable with a half-life of 2.6 x 10^-10 s...

                            We are entering into the era of giant telescope like the James Webb , WFIRST etc on space and GMT, TMT, E-ELT on ground. Sincerely hope this help the scientists gather more details about these strange stars of course apart from the other mysteries lurking in the space.

                                    Would have been nice if you had tried to describe what the surface of those stars are like. Metallic? Carbon hard diamond? Superfluid?
                                    I always like "This what you would see and feel on this star IF..."

                                                    Our perception isn't famously broad. We rely on technology to expand our observations. I've often wondered why so many insist on a flat earth. What if both spherical earth and flat earth are correct? One superimposed on the other so to speak. People have different perceptions. As we see with the planetary rings such as Saturn displays so gallantly. Not exactly that of course, but it might hint at such a reality as a superimposed flat earth dimension. There seems no possibility that we can deny as our awareness proceeds. We see quarks up, down and strange as curiosities for now. But what if there is an overlapping universe made up of such strangeness or other that we have no way of perceiving? Can dark matter or dark energy be an overlap? Or something that we have yet to discover? Today's scifi is tomorrow's science still holds true. We laugh at UFO's traveling from one star system to another. But, recently we theorize that a strong magnetic field pressing against a strong gravitational field such as a black hole can open a wormhole through which we can travel any distance instantly. An older advanced race might have no problem jumping spacetime. Science is in flux. Nothing's impossible. Laughing at odd theories is not scientific, investigating them IS science. But we're trapped in taking things one step at a time; so far. Quantum AI might change that reality.

                                                      I read somewhere that "stragelets" are maybe a thing (as you talked about strange matter) and they would convert any normal matter to stragelets just by touching it, is this true?

                                                        Theoretically street bound scientists is about as dangerous as giving Feynman an electron gun and a book to smell.

The other kind of gravitational singularity besides a black hole. This is a 1 dimensional gravitational singularity, with a mass of the Earth per kilometer, and they could be infinitely long. If they were straight, they wouldn't have a gravitational field, but they would when they bend, and they would be bending and wavering chaotically, and self intersecting and slicing off loops of itself. If you had an infinitely long cosmic string, it would serve as a perpetual motion machine, as it is infinite in length and would never run out. It could be the only thing life in the far future could potentially use to survive the dark era. But they probably don't exist, and there would be limits of fewer than 200 thousand of them in the entire universe, because each one cuts a 1/200000 pieslice sliver out of all the spacetime in the universe, as the angle around them isn't 360 degrees but 359.998.
