Half the universe was missing... until now

Half of the ordinary baryonic matter has been tough to find but Fast Radio Bursts made it possible to detect the WHIM. Thanks to Kiwico for sponsoring this video! For 20% off go to https://kiwico.com/veritasium or use code VERITASIUM at checkout..

Scientists are discovering and solving technical problems like this that most of us aren't knowledgeable enough to even know exist.

Meanwhile: flat-earthers are making a comeback. 🙄

Scientists: "We can't find 50% of the matter in space" Also scientists: "We found the missing 50% of matter. It was in space."

Finding the missing baryonic matter, and being able to potentially predict CME's, good year for space.

What a humble yet powerful message at the end: Don't be afraid to be wrong.

Last time I was this early, half the Universe was still missing.

Carl: "Check out this whistling noise we detected on the radio! Sounds like lasers, it could be aliens!"
Kevin: "Don't be dumb Carl, it's obviously the sound of low frequency lightning from the other side of the Earth that has been guided back to us by the Earth's magnetic field."
Carl: "Right, that makes perfect sense. I'll go ahead and publish that in our paper then."
Aliens: "lol"

So this guys saying there’s walls in space

I find it interesting that in science that “recently” or “until now” can mean up to 20 gears ago. Lol

"first we need to talk about lightning. I promise this is related"

Ah, that second sentence tells me I'm not on Vsauce.

Me: "Ma! I can't find the other half of the known universe!"

Ma: "Did you check in the Warm-Hot Intergalactic Medium?!"

Me: "Yes ma! 🙄"

Ma: "If I go down there and find the rest of the baryonic matter, I swear! 😡"

Me: 😰😱😭

Why couldn’t my high school just shown these videos in science class I probably would’ve actually paid attention

One of your best for me, I learned so much: The Lyman - alpha forest, the WHIM, whistlers; well done. More like this please

I think it's interesting how the research went from "that's some weird really short waves coming from somewhere far away" to "we found the missing half of the universe"
