What If You Pour 9,999,999 Liters of Nitrogen into the Sun?

Want to see how the universe began? Contact a Brookhaven Science Laboratory in
New York. In 2005, they recreated a very “hot” thing
– quark-gluon plasma. This is the state of elementary particles
– quarks and gluons, which were formed after the Big Bang. Plasma temperature is about 4 billion ° C,
or 39 billion ° F! It’s 250 times hotter than the solar core! It is a pity that scientists watched the plasma
in a closed laboratory – without a live broadcast. But luckily you have a Riddle! Which for the sake of hot shows, will go further
than scientists from Brookhaven! To space. We will take there the scorching Sun and … pour
one gallon of extremely cold liquid nitrogen on it! How will these two substances interact with
radically different temperatures? And what consequences await humanity as a
result of such a “hot” experiment? We won’t delay with the answer! Here is the Sun, here is a gallon of nitrogen,
here are your sunglasses, so that freckles don’t appear from the sun. Ready? Pour! We are waiting for the reaction. Still waiting …But there won’t be a spectacle. At least for now. After all, nitrogen –either 1 gallon, or
100 gallons – won’t even reach the Sun. Star Temperatures are 5,505 ° C, or 9,940
° F. Such heat is simply unbearable for liquid nitrogen – it will expand to a gaseous state
and evaporate in space. But we aren’t going to give up so easily,
right? In the end, we gathered here for the spectacle
– and we get it! But how to fix the problem and make the nitrogen
touch the sun? Maybe immediately send a cold element deeper? For example, in the solar core! We know that at high temperatures, liquid
nitrogen turns into gas. But if already at the beginning of the experiment
this element will be in the core, we will definitely have time to see its interaction
with the Sun. After all, to break out, nitrogen gas will
need to fly through the entire atmosphere of the hot Star. And this, as many as three layers: the photosphere,
the chromosphere and the solar corona. That is, our chances of seeing at least some
reaction between the Sun and nitrogen increase greatly! But before continuing, you should know all
the risks of such an event. After all, scientists believe that the experiment
with nitrogen in the solar core can destroy the entire solar system – including us,
the inhabitants of the planet Earth. There is irony in the fact that nitrogen can
provoke the death of all life. After all, this element is often used in extinguishing
fires. Not all, of course, but only those that arise
in enclosed spaces — for example, in mines. Nitrogen, unlike oxygen, doesn’t support
combustion and at the same time extinguishes the fire more accurately than water. He “keeps” intact everything that is in the
fire zone. It would seem that for this feature element
deserved some cool nickname, perhaps, “Captain Nitrogen”. But scientists – and in particular the French
chemist Antoine Lavoisier – for the very low temperature of nitrogen in the liquid
state called it simply: “lifeless.” If Lavoisier would know what tricks this “lifeless”
is capable of, being in the core of the Sun would take his words back! But in order for the experiment to become
really interesting, it’s important not to be greedy and use a lot of nitrogen. After all, one gallon of “lifeless” element
for the spectacle is likely to be small. In addition, the sun deserves a catalyst of
more magnitude. For example, with a mass equal to the total
mass of all the planets of the solar system. Or even more! Let’s make our nitrogen heavier on several
Jupiter masses. After all, this is the heaviest of all the
planets of our system, almost 318 times heavier than the Earth. And don’t worry! Such an amount of nitrogen is not very expensive. After all, this element has as much as 78%
of air in the total number of gases in its composition. But even if our reserves aren’t enough,
you can always borrow from Uranus or Neptune. What is really worth worrying about is what
happens when so much nitrogen lands in the very heart of the Sun? Scientists are convinced that such an experiment
could be the last in the history of mankind. After all, the temperature of the solar core
is 15 million K. Because of this heat, liquid nitrogen won’t
just turn into gas, but expand at least 700 times! The pressure inside the sun will be tremendous! A little more – and the Star will burst
into thousands of fragments! Probably … After all, according to scientists,
the forces of gravity still keep her from the explosion. But now nothing can save life on Earth. And that’s why. The sun is almost 80% hydrogen. Together with nitrogen, it forms explosive
ammonia. Because of this, the temperature of thermonuclear
reactions inside the Sun will increase. Add to this the energy that nitrogen will
release when it’s converted to gas — and we get a phenomenon that resembles the burning
of meteors in the Earth’s atmosphere. We will not see this storm right away. And only eight minutes after the nitrogen
is in the center of the sun. It is exactly what the light needs to overcome
the distance from the Sun to the Earth. Through these 480 seconds on our planet, the
radiation of heat and light, as well as radiation, will intensify. You will have to forget about day walks, because
the air temperature will reach 50 ° C, or 122 ° F. But even if you don’t go beyond
your bedroom, it is likely that your skin and eyesight will suffer from radiation. All this will be accompanied by melting glaciers
and deadly hurricanes with snow, which will easily demolish light buildings and trees. Hurricane snow will be replaced by warm showers
and thunderstorms. Tropical vegetation will have no chance of
survival, and along with it, millions of people who are doomed to starvation will die. Moreover, due to the increase in temperature,
water evaporation will also increase. Relief will bring only thick clouds – they
will reduce the flow of solar radiation. But the joy will be short-lived – steam-saturated
air will be difficult for breathing and deadly for people with weak lungs and heart. In such conditions, only single-celled, some
marine inhabitants and primitive plants can survive. But don’t think that this hot experiment
will bring destruction only to humanity. The sun due to fusion will increase in mass
and will shine stronger. And this will greatly shorten the life of
the Star itself. Yeah! We really went much further than the scientists
from Brookhaven with their quark-gluon plasma. But the difference between our experiments
is that the fantasy about nitrogen inside the solar core is simply unrealizable! First of all, our imaginary “nitrogen carrier”
will burn on the way to the hot Star. None of the materials available to people
wouldn’t be able to withstand its temperature. That is, we simply can’t deliver nitrogen
to the sun. But even if we assume that such material will
be found, flying to the center of the solar system will still remain a problem. After all, the correct orientation of the
rocket will bring down a strong light pressure. In addition, the distance to the Sun is about
three distances to Mars. This means that the rocket will have to spend
55 times more energy than to fly to the “red planet”. And as you can imagine, humanity doesn’t
have such capacities. Not yet. Surely, after looking at this, several questions
have popped in your head: What was it all about? What the hell have I just watched? Liquid nitrogen in the sun? Seriously? Who would have thought of such a crazy idea? But in fact, sometimes crazy ideas can not
only entertain, but even solve many problems. For example, a mad scientist relatively recently
came up with the idea: What if we fill the reservoir of Los Angeles with plastic balls? Moreover, they realized their venture in reality:
as a result, the balls saved the water from overheating, creating a shadow, and the reservoir
eventually cleared. Crazy scientists not only caught attention
from their experiment, but also received thanks from the locals. So, don’t be afraid to dream and ask the
most crazy questions, no matter how strange they may seem! If you liked the video, put your thumbs up

  2. I would like to see a story about what would happen if you go st straight up or straight down in outer space. And is it even possible.

  3. If you will play with nature you will kill yourself first. You are doing that with earth planet and watching the consequences of your little irresponsible actions. Big actions will kill all. Our solar system is even smaller than grain of sand. Recognise your tiniest existence and do not try to start war with big boss

  4. Here is a better experiment…

    Gather a lot of Nitrogen from Neptune (or Uranus) and sent it do Venus (where it is too hot).

    Hmmm If the Earth has a lot of Nitrogen, perhaps that is what is prevent us from being scorched. If Venus is loaded up with it… we could make another habitable planet maybe?

  5. There would be zero effect – as anyone with a modicum of scientific knowledge or just common sense knows lol..

  6. no one:
    literally no one:
    no one in this universe:
    not even a ghost:
    Riddle: what would happen if thanos snapped the earth and peed while destroying humanity and you flew 999 miles in a minute and time traveled.

  7. Nitrogen will never reach it,but if we had the technology to make it get there and hit the core,well my friend life will be all over for all of us..nitrogen is something u don't want to mess with.

  8. 10:23 of my life wasted on pointless Neil deGrasse tyson sound alike no science at all taking a ice block to a heater never getting that time back video

  9. Not possible to make nitrogen heavier then a planet and taking all the nitrogen from earth, Uranus and Neptune will not be enough to even cover 1/3 of the sun and the nitrogen will still just vapourise.

  10. Itโ€™s an inert gas.. besides itโ€™s own density it will do nothing… if you place it in the core that gas will speed up dramatically traveling to the surface before a nuclear reaction happens.. it needs a solid desity to create a nuclear explosion and plasma itself is to light of a density to even maintain the gas.l

  11. This was a lot lower quality than your normal videos. It took forever to get to the point, and the payout wasn't worth the watch. There was no substance.

  12. Maybe you could do a video on temperature, why's absolute zero only -273 degrees C but on the hot side of things it seems never ending, why cant you go colder but can always get hotter? I'm probably being stupid here aha

  13. Humanity does have the capacity to send nitrogen to the sun wtf are you talking about? Fuel requirements don't matter at all, the vast majority of fuel is used to escape earth's gravity after that it is negligible it would NOT need 55x more energy at all, in fact it would likely not need ANY more energy and potentially less since you wouldn't need to worry about complex landing systems and various other instruments lowering the load's weight. As usual people need to remember this guy doesn't have the slightest idea what he is talking about.

  14. Well…

    The temperature at the core of the sun is so high that atoms are racing around too fast to form chemical reactions, only fusing nuclear reactions…so.. no ammonia.
    Nitrogen is created all the time in the centers of stars through fusion of hydrogen to helium to carbon, etc (until Iron). The fact we even have Nitrogen on Earth is from the various supernovae of stars.
    It takes a photon of light 1,000s of years to get from the core to the surface of the sun..what makes you think you can perceive any reactions even if they could happen in any timely format?

    I know.. this whole thing is just for laughs to make funny vids.

  15. man, "what if" is waaay better. These guys just keep repeating the same question billions of times followed by random factual data and bad jokes.

  16. โ€œDoomed to starvation and dieโ€ video of festivities play and a woman holding up a Canadian flag and merch is the only thing that I can zero in on.

  17. ๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Have you guys ever had that dream where you could ride your phone but text on sun but itโ€™s impossible to read the smell

    No?…only me ?

  19. how can the sun burst into thousand of pieces of fragment when it is just it is just a giant ball of gas ๐Ÿค”๐ŸคทLOL smh ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
