Vikram Srinivasan : She is energetic beautiful youthful and above all exploring. It's the unknown so the learning never ends. I am little surprised as to why science always believes in Visual observation. Couldn't there be things beyond eyesight?

Ismail Topa : Studying and discovering new horizons of the universe. Still believe the creator of said universe will get pissed of her hair is exposed

Sam Geurdi : This comment section is a toxic waste dump

Friends r like family : 2 minute silence for the racist in the comment section 🙏

David Davies : she's an astronomer yet she believes the moon was split in two

Octobris : Imagine having a type of a freakin' galaxy named after you. Incredible.

John Benjamin : I am automatically skeptic when I see a religious person pretending to be all devoted to facts and the scientific methode.

hobaaa : If she can discover a rare galaxy, I don't care if she is regularly wrestling with pandas or wearing a turban. It's a similar kind of irrelevancy on her work. She might do it to prove the mightiness of her God, but the rest of us can simply interpret her findings as a curious step forward to re-realize how little we know about this universe!

J. Knight : I wonder if her husband gave her permision to talk on the stage

ProfessorBorax : Maybe the Qur'an can explain it?

Jordan Lee : You can tell how passionate and happy she is talking about this. Great talk!

Albino CAT : I just came here to see all the hate comments, wasn’t disappointed Also she seems very passionate about this discovery, god bless her

thowa1 : I find this lacking in substance, for a TED talk ( it's not TEDx): "I found a new Galaxy type, we know nothing about it"...or is this really about "you can be a muslim female scientist and get a galaxy named after you" (see comments below)?!?

Dais 25 : The only people who i afraid of her from is the majority of Muslim themselves. Those will call her a blasphemous just because she is an educated cultured woman. I'm a Muslim Man and really respect this woman cuz she is an inspiration to all the Tolerantly Muslims . God bless her.

D. Wilson : A bright, educated and highly talented female scientist from a community where women are regularly marginalized and subjugated.. So she is taking the open stage, speaking in public, might makes some douchebags and control freaks to freak out.. Go girl.. carry on spreading knowledge.. God bless..

Winistan : This talk should have been longer

And then I fired And I missed : Comment section full of basement dwelling nacho eating fatasses who have done absolutely nothing with their life except falling from their chair and pissing themselves and hating on someone spreading knowledge just because she is a female muslim scientist? Tells you a lot about what they've achieved in their life.

Pedro Gonzalez : TLDR: Found new type of galaxy. We don't know how the universe works.

Jase Boon : A scientist...………...in religious dress...………………..oh dear, good luck reconciling that equation lol

Massive Branflake : Her enthusiasm and passion makes me smile inside. I bet she’s a lovely person to talk to

R M : So cool to have a Galaxy named after you. Talk about accomplishments! 👏👏👏

Omar R : interesting video ,,,i wish the comments tackled the scientific side of it rather than the religious and culture of her

deavman : She studies galaxies and the amazing wonders of the universe...but abides to a 7th century violent cult requiring her to hide her hair. Totally logical.

satanfiras : It should be called the bacon pig galaxy

Higgs : She sounds like an arrogant narcissist. TLDR "I found a galaxy, I don't know what it is, I have no theories to throw out in the air about how it formed or how it evolves, but here it is. I have nothing else to say. Oh, and I named it after myself even though I had an ENTIRE team help me with the discovery of this new galaxy." Lol she's so interested in discovering the universe but still believes the creator of said universe will get pissed off if her skin is exposed. Cover your hands and face if you wanna play that game lady.

Jon L : How do people make everything about religion and race, just enjoy the damn video

EZee VZee : Funny thing is that she's talking about advance scientific research while wearing a headscarf which believers of flying donkey wear. 😂 😂😂😂😂

Aman The Conqueror : Its better that she didn't bring allah in between crediting allah for the mystery of galaxy..lol

oSJme : So intelligent but still following the rules of a book written by a man who heard voices in the desert 🤦🏼‍♂️ Edit: Please, I don't want a fight about religion. I think it's absolutely ok to believe in a higher being. I mean, on a logical way it might be possible that there is some kind of "god". But what I don't get is why intelligent people follow the rules of a book written by a man in the desert from a time where people explained their world with wonders and magic.

neo somaliana : Damn mozlems invading everywhere - now they're islamifying outer space! Soon NASA will be based on sharia law.

Fira Fatmasiefa : I'm Muslim and I want to be an astrophysicist, but sometimes I am curious and a little scared of how I will be treated and viewed bcs of the lack of representation. But now I'm seeing this, she's standing in a TED stage, she's an astrophysicist, she's Muslim, and she just made such an amazing discovery... I'm so inspired by her!!! This just makes me even more determined to become an astrophysicist and to hopefully be able to contribute to space research as well!! She has all my respect and I thank her so so so much

Musketeer009 : This is about Galaxies guys, nothing else. My theory is that there's a giant super-massive black hole in the centre of the galaxy causing the empty centre. The gravity waves from this hole have corralled the starts into a ring. A Smaller black hole in the galaxy, is orbiting the centre and has cleared a gap in the ring, resulting in two rings. The older redder stars are towards the centre and the newer brighter stars are in the outer ring. Just my theory and I'm happy to have it shot down....'coz I'm sure someone will be all belligerent about it and get worked up in some way or another. Congratulations to Burçin and her team for finding it. 👍

Ploppy Ploppy : We've found a galaxy. We have no idea what it is. We have no theories to put forward. We have nothing else to say about it. The end. What a great 'talk' that was. I suppose it had to happen eventually as Ted talks have been slowly getting less interesting. I can't wait for another talk about something else they have nothing to say about. A talk is actually far more interesting if it gives us things to think about or explains what we know. This to me is the equivalent of pointing at a cow and going - look there's an animal... the end.

dark day : Looks like Americans are, as usual, totally clueless. The Islamic world's contributions to astronomy are incalculable. "Azimuth" and "nadir" are Arabic words. If you aren't a total imbecile, that fact alone should put things in perspective.

Vladimir Lenin : *Speaks in **-kebab-** English*

Azliana Lyana : Burcin's Galaxy! Cool!

Toni Jam : That’s pretty awesome :) well done.

lchpdmq : She runs a team and still allows people to force her to cover her head? Makes me sad for her

Techno Mania : man only she was excited that much. i love astro science and i find her to much enthusiastic to a level that it bored me

Atheris Green : It's always been a paradox to me how you can be religious and a scientist. One cancels the other out. Especially in extreme cases like this. A Muslim women studying the cosmos, yet has been brought up to believe and likely still believes a man rode into space on a magical horse as her crazy religion teaches. Im sorry, but you are either with science 100% or you're not. You dont get to look for answers in the universe while cradling a primitive belief system as truth.

Rofindra Alif Iskandar : It saddened me that people judge her for hijab Well how about naked lady explaining that she discovered galaxy and named it a "Boob Galaxy" Will that satisfy you? You want to get respect or good karma but you dont respect other people

Morgan Kodysz : What's she doing breaking multiple Sharia laws? Stone her!!! 😂

Volodymyr Shcherbatenko : So I'm listening to a scientist, who believes in a flying unicorn, which transported prophets here and there? Sounds legit. Probably should listen. Otherwise I'll be the one called short minded, stupid and the bad guy after all.

Mr Caesar : *what she just said were stolen words* it's just *copy and paste* the *only reason why she's on stage* is *because she's Muslim and a woman* it's just a *puppet show* for everybody. Puppet show; I've heard her speech from real physicist as well as documentaries *she should be penalized for those stolen words*

Mad araH : I see a woman wearing a hijab and i already know the comments are gonna be stage 4 cancer

Karam Izouka : what a sad comment section :/

Red Rooster : I don't understand why a Muslim woman would want to cover herself in our society where the sight of a bare ankle doesn't inflame sexual desires in men? In fact, you can go to a nudist beach and not be given a second look. lol

annakeye : Ms Mutlu-Pakdil is so obviously full of the joys that doing what you love brings. Like a female Neil deGrasse Tyson, she doesn't stop smiling. Bravo Burçin and your team and congratulations on this fascinating discovery. I hope to hear more soon.

Kiran Kumar Sahoo : Thank God she didn't give any quranic verse to prove that her research are already mentioned in allahs ultimate word for whole mankind (the quran). 😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣😂😂

aleratz : Believe in science. Believe in the quran. Choose one.
