How Heavy and Dangerous Would Thor’s Hammer Mjolnir Really Be If Made From A Star? (Video)
The Movie God   |  

Thor Hammer Mjolnir

A little over a year ago, astrophysicist and host of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Neil deGrasse Tyson, said on the Twitter that if Thor’s fabled hammer Mjolnir were made of neutron star matter, the hammer would weigh as much as 300 BILLION elephants.

It didn’t take long for a correction to deGrasse Tyson’s tweet, letting him know that the hammer was actually molded inside of a star, not made from it, and that it’s actually made of the metal Uru and, according to Marvel, weighs in at about 42 pounds.

42 pounds is nowhere near as amusing as the thought of 300 billion elephants, though, so what if Mjolnir really were made from a star? A new video has been made digging into not only how unbelievably heavy the hammer would be, but also how devastatingly deadly it would be. You can watch the video below!

Ryan Midnight   |  

Portal GLaDOS

The dry wit of the evil artificial intelligence GLaDOS, voiced with perfect acerbic delivery by actress Ellen McLain, is one of the high points of the Portal video game series. Now GLaDOS has found new purpose as a teaching tool via NASA to discuss the differences between nuclear fusion and fission energy, with McLain returning to provide the distinctive voice. Make no mistake about it, even though this is about learning, GLaDOS is still very much evil!
