The night sky seems peaceful and orderly. But in reality, stars are careening through the galaxy at speeds of hundreds of thousands of kilometres per hour. Not bound by static formations but changing neighbourhoods constantly. Fortunately space is big, and so the stars of the Milky Way are very unlikely to hit us. Unfortunately, they don’t have to hit anything to make us have a really bad time on earth. And there are already stars starting to get very close.

    What do you know of fear? Fear is for the winter, my little lord, when the snows fall a hundred feet deep and the ice wind comes howling out of the north. Fear is for the long night, when the sun hides its face for years at a time, and little children are born and live and die all in darkness while the direwolves grow gaunt and hungry, and the white walkers move through the woods. Thousands and thousands of years ago, a winter fell that was cold and hard and endless beyond all memory of man. There came a night that lasted a generation, and kings shivered and died in their castles even as the swineheards in their hovels. Women smothered their children rather than see them starve, and cried, and felt their tears freeze on their cheeks.

    The premise of a surviving population, not only of humans but also of any other species that we could similarly save, wether whole or with preserved DNA samples (see: Titan A.E.) would make, in my opinion, a fantastic science fiction story/series. Novelized or Serialized. Also, I find the Narrator's voice to be fantastic and oddly cathartic. Thank you Kurzgesagt for another enlightening video!
