Science Ruins The Avengers

Astronomer Phil Plait rose to his currently level of notability outside of the scientific community when he dissected all the ways in which Armageddon is a terrible film, from a scientific point of view (leaving all the other points of view for the rest of us to pick at). And while picking apart movies is no longer his primary concern, on occasion, he does use his powers for good, and explains why just because something looks cool does not mean it is science-approved.

As he has now done with the Helicarrier from The Avengers. And considering that this is a movie that contains quantum magic, a cosmic cube, gamma rays, and Hawkeye's improbably aiming skills, I suppose the Helicarrier is as good a target as any.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
