Reported by Outsiders - 11:23 AM 2013.02.08
Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is looking to answer a scientific question that he asked via Twiiter and that is how much does Thor's hammer weigh?
In the Marvel comic books, it's said that Thor's hammer is made of a star and would weigh as much as 300 billion elephants. From the Slate report/video, based on the average weight of an elephant, this equates to approximately 4.5 quadrillion pounds. This is also coming from a Astrophysicist that was featured in an issue of Action Comics in 2012, where he helped determine the location of Superman’s home planet, Krypton.
