Remember Mjolnir, Thor’s hammer made out of the heart of a star? Well, astrophysicist Neil dGrasse Tyson, revealed this hammer’s weight via Twitter. What is that? The hammer weighs as much as 300 billion elephants.
According to Marvel’s myth, Odin commanded the dwarves to forge Mjolnir. So, Eitri, Brok and Buri used the heart of a star, and during the forging, such a big explosion took place, that almost swallowed the Earth.
According to the same myth, this may explain the extinction of dinosaurs as well, but this is another story. You can read more about the actual myth concerning the Nordic god’s hammer, here.
This astrophysicist, estimated the weight, while in fact taking into account the prime matter used, and even shared with us the “actual” Thor’s hammer that helped him to make his calculations, which you can see on the photo. How cool can science be, anyway?
