Neil deGrasse Tyson just took the mystery out of a cosmic legend in comics, and somehow made it even cooler. How much does Mjolnir, the hammer of Thor and forged from a collapsing star, actually weigh? Turns out, stars weigh a lot.

If Thor's hammer is made of neutron-star matter, implied by legend, then it weighs as much as a herd of 300-billion elephants

 

That is one heavy hammer. XD

HAHAHAHAHA ... Neil's awesome, I wish I wasn't star-struck when I bumped into him.


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

Without the added spell on the hammer though how strong would that make Thor compared to Superman?

Ahh! Good point. Those guys that did the Freiza / Goku battle should calculate Thor's power. :nod:

Back in the day science in comics was kinda: ''make it up if it sounds like it could make sense''

 

If it actually weighed that, it would probably fall to the centre of the planet if he ever put it down ;p
