5 “Impossible” Things That Can Happen On Other Planets

There are some things that are just not possible on our planet. It would certainly be understandable that you would think that if it’s impossible here on Earth, then it would be impossible everywhere else in the universe. But that’s simply not the case. And the universe is far stranger than any of us can actually believe. Let’s begin with shadows. Your shadow on Earth is always alone and you’re always used to seeing it this way as it follows during the day. You’re also used to seeing everyone else with just one shadow, but this isn’t a universal thing that would be experienced elsewhere. You have one shadow because our primary light source on Earth is our sun. But what would happen if there were two suns? A planet that orbits two stars would look much like Tatooine from Star Wars, with two brilliant sunsets each day and two shadows instead of one for each person. It used to only be science fiction until the planet Kepler-16b was discovered, which is a place that orbits two different stars. If you were suddenly teleported to the surface of the planet, you would likely die from the extreme temperatures and lack of air to breathe. But assuming that you were teleported in a suit that could help you survive, then you would experience having two different shadows. A friend for your always lonely shadow that you experience on Earth. Our next extremely bizarre place is a planet that is likely completely covered in water. An ocean planet named GJ1214-b. The planet is several times larger than the Earth, which makes the Pacific Ocean on our planet seem like a puddle in comparison. Even though water covers over 70% of the Earth’s surface, water only accounts for 0,005% of the Earth’s total mass. On GJ1214-b however, water may account for up to 10% of the planet’s total mass. Which means that the entire planet would be covered in an ocean hundreds of kilometers deep. Our own ocean goes down only a mere eleven kilometers and we already have terrifying monsters like this, and this, or huge whales like this. So, one’s imagination can run absolutely wild with what fantastical monsters could exist in an ocean that’s over 10 times deeper than our own. Who knows what could be lurking there if you crash landed your ship on the surface. But what is known is that at the very bottom of this massive ocean, hundreds of kilometers beneath the surface, the pressure would be so intense that the water at the bottom would be transformed into an exotic form of ice known as Ice 7. This ice wouldn’t be like ice that you know on Earth. It wouldn’t be cold at all, but would remain in a solid form. This doesn’t happen naturally on Earth, but neither does our next bizarre example. Weather on Earth is often violent and unpredictable, but it’s extremely tame compared to other places in the universe. Take the planet COROT-7b for example, where instead of raining water it rains down rocks. This is because half of the planet is scorching hot at 2,600 C, while the other half is far cooler at 177 C. The temperature on the hot side is enough to vaporize rocks. And just like how water will evaporate and condense into clouds on Earth, so too will rocks condense into rock clouds on this planet. These strange rock clouds will then rain liquid rock or magma back onto the surface. But since the atmosphere is cooler the farther up it goes and the temperature on the cool side is far lower, the magma rain will often harden into rocks before striking the ground. This planet seems like the closest place to hell that a place in the universe could get. But another planet has perhaps even more bizarre weather. This planet, known as HD189773-b, is located 63 light years away from us, is a little larger than Jupiter and looks stunningly beautiful from space. But that beauty is hiding a terrifying secret. It looks this way because the planet’s atmosphere is made up primarily of silicate particles. Winds on the planet can scream at 5,400mph, equal to 2km/s or 7 times the speed of sound. Temperatures can reach up to 930 C. But most terrifying of all is that the planet rains glass sideways in its extremely violent 2 km per second winds. This is so fast and scary that if a storm like that happened to appear on Earth, it would travel across the entire planet at the equator in just five hours and 35 minutes. And leave behind a shredded trail of glass. But even this storm pales in comparison to the mightiest wind so far known in our entire universe. The wind on the planet HD189733-b. This is a gas planet with one side always facing its star, where temperatures can reach a scorching 966 C. But the temperature on the dark side is still very hot at 688 C. So, how does the dark side remain so hot still? The answer is extremely, wickedly fast wind, possibly up to 22,000mph, equal to 10km per second or nearly 29 times the speed of sound. For reference, the fastest ever recorded wind on the Earth happened during a tornado in Oklahoma back in 1999. And that was only 301 mph (484 kmh), or 73 times less than a nightmare storm on this giant that’s raging right now as you’re watching this video. If you made yourself a kite and flew through the wind, then you could zip around the entire Earth in a mere one hour and eight minutes. But perhaps the most interesting place is somewhere that’s much closer to home. Specifically, this place called Titan, which is a moon of Saturn. It has such a thick atmosphere, that we didn’t even know what its surface looked like until 2005, which if you’re curious, it looks like this. But Titan is a very bizarre place. It has an atmosphere, rivers and lakes and it even rains like on Earth. But the temperature is a bone shattering negative 179 C, which is so cold that water is as hard as rocks and the chemical methane exist in a liquid state. The clouds, rivers and lakes on the moon are made of methane, which is the primary component of natural gas. Only 20% of Titan’s surface has ever been mapped, but it is estimated that in that region alone, there is hundreds of times more natural gas and oil than is located on all of Earth. There is so much gas on Titan, that it literally rains it. It’s an oil tycoon’s dream. And maybe the best way to encourage space travels’ to let a few countries know about Titan. But even more strange, you could actually theoretically fly on Titan. The atmosphere is thick enough and the gravity is weak enough that if attached a pair of wings to your arms and made a running jump, then you could actually flap around the moon like a bird, taking in all the alien sights of rivers and lakes. Of course you would need a suit to protect yourself, but still, you could fly just like in your dreams and achieve something that’s impossible here on Earth. There are over 1,000 confirmed planets that have been discovered outside of our solar system so far. And you can learn more about the most recent ones discovered by checking out this video from Second Thought next. Where he explains the possibility of life outside our solar system.

Nothing is impossibile, there are infinte number of reality's where this could be "normal". When NSA the borring institute will create a warm hole you well see.

ShakotoTM · October 7, 2019 at 5:07 pm

We basically found the subnautica planet

Colin Cartoons! · October 7, 2019 at 6:19 pm

Titan is real?!

Thanos confirmed

Bilal Atif · October 7, 2019 at 6:54 pm

5:25 it takes me more than 1 hour and 8 minutes to get ready and go to school

TheUnpopularGuy · October 7, 2019 at 6:59 pm

Titan: has oil

America: knock knock, its the United States

SlavMan · October 7, 2019 at 7:29 pm

Titan was like most planets; too many mouths, not enough to go around. And when we faced extinction, I offered a solution.

Noob Oof · October 7, 2019 at 7:58 pm

Why should I go on Kepler while I have 2 lights in my house?

Flamingo Man · October 7, 2019 at 8:10 pm

Raining lava now that's fucking metal!

Captain Ahab · October 7, 2019 at 8:15 pm

The first one is incorrect. At rare times we do have a second shadow, though very hard to see. If the conditions are met and you have good eyes, venus is bright enough to cast light onto earth.

RedWolfie Gacha · October 7, 2019 at 8:31 pm

We could just nuke that sun I think or the sun would explode the nuke idk

HarryChicken God · October 7, 2019 at 8:42 pm

I know this is different but at my baseball field when its dark out there are lights around the field at different angles which causes the players to have 4 shadows

Rokas Charlapavičius · October 7, 2019 at 8:51 pm

where can i find that picture? @2:00

Slotslat -ILLX- · October 7, 2019 at 10:51 pm

How is it impossible but…

Wait im confused impossible things on other planets but if its impossible it cant happen

John Kent · October 7, 2019 at 11:14 pm

Dang, two shadows, never seen that on this planet before.

Missy Woodham · October 8, 2019 at 12:22 am

There is a Planet that can rain glass at impossibly high speeds with unbearably high temperatures.. And here we are complaining about a little bit of rain when we step outside or maybe it being a little humid.

Lewis Gentry · October 8, 2019 at 12:37 am

These frickin names also btw imagine planet Dolan had a planet imagine there was a white planet looking like planet Dolan’s planet and someone named it PLANET DOLAN XD (DONT GET MAD AT ME FOR MENTIONING ANOTHER YOUTUBER IM VERY SORRY :(please don’t yell at me)

Legend -Awsome · October 8, 2019 at 12:48 am

RealLifeShit:but most terrifying of all on HD-something it's that it rains glass
Me:not that terrifying
Me:O_O oh shit

kennethize · October 8, 2019 at 12:56 am

Blah blah blah. You do not know that; you think that.

Andrew Walling · October 8, 2019 at 1:43 am

This video is the stupidest video I ever saw

ZORM · October 8, 2019 at 2:09 am

No living things but storms 'live' everywhere lol

Brayden Malizia · October 8, 2019 at 2:23 am

okay everything in here is a lie it's because scientifically rain is not rocks or else they would be hard metal rock or stone inside a break those are the two strongest thing in the world so you would get knocked out one-by-one little rain so you better shut up with your nonsense with that so I didn't get your mind straight

Artyom · October 8, 2019 at 2:40 am

We need to bring democracy to Titan

SirFredrin · October 8, 2019 at 3:10 am

If you can survive the world of frostpunk, you can survive titan. Just need an oxygen mask and electric clothing, no need for pressure suit cause there is plenty there.

Beyond Random · October 8, 2019 at 3:50 am

So is it possible or impossible

SLUGGISH MAGE · October 8, 2019 at 10:29 am

In 2:10 let's just think SUBNAUTICA is real LOL

retrogaming nl0.3 · October 8, 2019 at 10:33 am

Onmogelijk?? Dan is het toch mogelijk

Daniel Pratt R.O.W · October 8, 2019 at 10:42 am

Earth is flat you spacehead baseheads… wake the fuck up. This was the WORST ewetoob "educational" video ive ever seen. ABSOLUTE GIBBERISH FANTASY BULLSHIT! 😂😂😂😂😂

Matufatu Gentleman · October 8, 2019 at 10:51 am

Simple question: How is it, that we know these things about planets in other solar systems, but are unable to verify planet 9 in our own? I call bullshit pseudoscience on everything in this video. I doesn't make any sense to me whatsoever. Do explain please.

Pablo Molina · October 8, 2019 at 10:51 am

I’m guessing happiness should be on this list

Flaming Tycoon · October 8, 2019 at 1:35 pm

So in the planet with two suns is there like a sun eclipse and thats the day when your shadow gets lonely? Also in the other days wouldn't the light from both suns cancel both shadows and there is no shadow but only you left?

Ninalb s. · October 8, 2019 at 1:51 pm

America: natural gas? Get the fucking space rovers out there!

But also, the fact that we could fly like a bird should be enough to make us get there immediately.

LighT · October 8, 2019 at 3:07 pm

To say for the tittle : it's not impossible if it can happen

Ricochet · October 8, 2019 at 3:11 pm

What happens if u accidentally drop a lighter on titan?

907 player · October 8, 2019 at 3:48 pm


Lava turns to ice….

Eva Animation20 · October 8, 2019 at 5:17 pm

For yall vld fans out there, doesn’t altea rain down rocks??? Coincidence??? I think not!!

Yea Boi · October 8, 2019 at 7:05 pm

1:53 I mean, did they have to measure it with humans?

Jacek Zzz · October 8, 2019 at 10:12 pm

A things that could be said in few simple words

Sean Grega · October 8, 2019 at 11:04 pm

how can it rain glass if glass is made by humans?… CLICKBAIT

Frantastic Gaming · October 8, 2019 at 11:16 pm

Titan would be are 3rd planet

Derp Master · October 9, 2019 at 12:29 am

GJ1214-b is probably where they got the idea for a game I play called subnautica

H. Tom · October 9, 2019 at 2:15 am

The two shadows thing isn’t impossible🤨

Rukanika Rukanika · October 9, 2019 at 2:27 am

If we had 2 suns we wouldn't have any shadow try it with light bulb

Rukanika Rukanika · October 9, 2019 at 2:32 am

It's weird that every planet is circle

Pretty Princess · October 9, 2019 at 3:46 am

Hahahaha guess who is never going to space

French Fries · October 9, 2019 at 4:25 am

so.. if it was a VERY hot day with one sun, how would it be like with 2?

Solid Shibe · October 9, 2019 at 5:49 am

America: Time to liberate titan

Darkbrine gaming · October 9, 2019 at 7:36 am

How is 22 thousand mph even possible?

Nibba TodeisHD · October 9, 2019 at 8:03 pm

NASA: Finds a new planet.
Keyboard: Gone, reduced to atoms.

Baby Groot · October 9, 2019 at 8:05 pm

I've always doubted that they could even correctly say what a planets "atmosphere", what the planet surface, etc is really made off. Or that they can know what a storm's wind speed is. And I truly believe there is NO way anyone could know that kind of stuff no matter how advanced the technology of their equipment is. It's just guess work. They can't even figure out a majority of things on earth that they can touch and test with equipment first hand.
(I'm guessing no begins the posts from people that are gonna act intelligent & try to sound all smart like they know what their talking about & have it all figured out. But they actually won't know what their talking about with no true science to back their ideas or statements up with. I recommend they go find that "missing link" they've been looking for for a thousand years, yet haven't found because it doesn't exist. Well they can still go look for it, they can always hope and dream….lol

Nibba TodeisHD · October 9, 2019 at 8:06 pm

Titan: Has oil.
America: Communism intensifies

this_was_ · October 9, 2019 at 8:46 pm

Who is better

Holy crap

Walker 411 · October 10, 2019 at 2:24 am

Video: GJ1214-b is an ocean planet 100s of kilometers deep.
Me: Wait, we have that already, right? (Thinks about Subnautica)

Not Bot · October 10, 2019 at 2:43 am

Lol I don’t think the two shadow planet will actually give you two shadows, just a half shadow on each of your sides

Not Bot · October 10, 2019 at 2:46 am

Lmao imagine squeezing water so hard that you create ice

Swetha Regatte · October 10, 2019 at 2:57 am

There’s a messed up thing in somewhere in the universe,it a planet rotating around 3 suns while those 3 suns rotate around each other and the planet which makes it constantly on the move

Dharsh Srinath · October 10, 2019 at 3:29 am


Kaynen Lars · October 10, 2019 at 4:16 am

So like it takes 20 minutes at 400 degrees F for a frozen pizza so at some planet it would take 5 minutes

khestun banga · October 10, 2019 at 4:31 am

but the sun would most like not create two identical shadows, and not all the location on that planet would get 2 shadows

MrMeow YT · October 10, 2019 at 5:39 am

The scientists naming the planet must have been high

Yeetoku · October 10, 2019 at 8:40 am

America it's free real estate

halliwell1998 · October 10, 2019 at 10:45 am

Hurts my head to think about other planets out there bigger than ours and then theres these planets just empty like the ocean planet like waves and sunsets and no one there to see them

halliwell1998 · October 10, 2019 at 10:50 am

What if you lit a match on titan?

UniQueLyEviL · October 10, 2019 at 1:17 pm

Pigs fly if you feed them Red Bull.

Can I get 1000 Subs? · October 10, 2019 at 2:35 pm

If we had two suns the Earth would be ripped apart and become two Earths.

jason rodriguez · October 10, 2019 at 3:08 pm

Kid: me


Kid: Smashes his head and his friends heads into 10 keyboard

Scientists:these planets are impossible

Reality: let's see about that

Anwar Gergis · October 10, 2019 at 11:16 pm

I Granny and mom were supposed to get the boys and they said that they are very stupid and then she told me that I didn’t want to play Roblox

Httyd Forever · October 10, 2019 at 11:54 pm

Does anybody think that the person who named those planets smashed their head on the keyboard or random numbers and letters typed?

Sabri Gazvoda · October 11, 2019 at 12:03 am

Are they planet names or links?

KozyKraft · October 11, 2019 at 12:31 am

WillJ R · October 11, 2019 at 2:41 am

It been a while since I have taken chemistry. But if I reminder correctly isn’t methane an organic compound containing carbon. So what the hell died on titan

Blavood · October 11, 2019 at 2:48 am

Oh ya if Ice is so cool why isn't there an Ice 2? Shit, there's an Ice 7?!

Bimmer Won · October 11, 2019 at 3:39 am

Light one match on Titan and you burn the whole moon down.

Strokx · October 11, 2019 at 4:02 am

there wouldn't be 2 shadows since the suns would cancel each of them out. It would actually have smaller shadows, in certain situations

CoverPulse · October 11, 2019 at 8:56 am


Luca Davis · October 11, 2019 at 9:42 am

I swear i saw that half hot and half cold planet on Ben 10 😂

Hana Khaled · October 11, 2019 at 10:44 am

Me: NASA found a new planet! What do you think they'll name it?
NASA: Oh we know! Writes code on the back of the router There we go!

PUPPY BOOIDK · October 11, 2019 at 11:55 am

1:40 thats terrifying! IMAGINE WHATS IN THE WATER!
