Sources & further reading:

The past is a vast and mysterious land that begins at the big bang and ends in the present, expanding with each passing moment. It is the home of everything that came before, the key to understanding our present. Here we find the most amazing creatures to ever roam our planet, hundreds of millions of species so diverse that our imagination cannot do them justice. Unfortunately the past carefully guards its secrets.

Just as a suggestion, I think there would be a huge market audience who would be interested in your content if these videos were translated into Chinese. Thumbs up if you think Kurzgesagt should add some Chinese subtitles and grow the channel even more! Thank you for your vids, much love
