VIDEO: Scientist Estimates Weight of Thor’s Hammer
Pop-culture's favorite astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson took to Twitter to weigh in on a classic comic technical question: How much does Mjölnir, Thor’s magic hammer, really weigh?
The short answer? 300 Billion Elephants, or 4.5 quadrillion (4,500,000,000,000,000) pounds. Of course being a scientist, he doesn't factor in whether the magical component to the Uru makes it that heavy ONLY when an "unworthy" person tries to lift it, or if it weighs that much all the time.
