That is some awesome pointless information!

But still awesome!

@2:32 horribly wrong. Speed of sound? You are talking about acceleration, not speed. It means how much you GAIN speed. So yes, from a standstill, you'd travel at the speed of sound after one second. But a second after that? Twice that speed. Really, check out your units. That's like saying 333m/s^2 is sort of like the amount of apples a whale draws during a thunderstorm.

I asked Thor about this, and he said you've got it all wrong. It's made of, and I quote: " of a dying star, it's basically been coated with a layer to boost endurance. The hammer is also made of gold, silver and carbon. It weighs about 1800 kg on Earth." He also told me that the bond he has with Mjølnir (the Hammer) is similar to that of quantum entanglement, but he didn't want to specify due to laws in Åsgard regarding interference with human technological advances.

Neutron stars are only dense as neutron stars - you need all that mass and its gravitational field to keep the neutrons packed together.

If you could magically remove a piece of a neutron star and place it somewhere else, it would promptly explode from the degeneracy pressure no longer having gravity to keep it in check. And then the neutrons would start decaying into protons, electrons, and neutrinos (neutrons don't last long outside of a nucleus), within a short time releasing 15 trillion times the energy of that biggest H bomb mentioned in the video. That's enough energy to melt all of the Earth's crust one hundred times over. That's it for all life, quite permanently. Even after the debris coalesces and re-solidifies, there won't be much in the way of water left, and there won't be any bombardment by comets to rehydrate the planet. That means no repeat on the origin of life.

All that assumes that the mass in the video is accurate. I didn't feel like estimating the volume of that hammer.

#3 gravity is the dominant force at the macroscopic scale. earth has an approximate value of 9.81 m/s2, which means that, ignoring the effects of air resistance, the speed of an object falling freely near the Earth's surface will increase by about 9.81 metres (32.2 ft) per second every second.On the other hand thors hammer has a gravitational force of "holly cow thats fast" and most objects would vaporize in the atmosphere before they reached thors hammer

Tihi..I so love how people go super sayan..erm..super scientific on such videos about a fictional object..just like the coins of super mario or the rings from Sonic or his speed. But thats the spark of snotr..keep it up guys 8-)

It weighs as much as it need to be to progress the plot.
