In Norse mythology, Chris Hemsworth's character Thor is the one who protects humankind. In Chris Hemsworth's real life, he's now got two new little humans to protect: Wife Elsa Pataky has given birth to twins. That there are two new Hemsworth babies is just about all we know, according to E! News, which confirmed the births with the actor's rep. No genders or names have been revealed. Ooh, the secrecy!

What does Thor's hammer weigh? Ten quadrillion pounds? 42.3 pounds? Less? Among scientific laws is this one: Nerds will be nerds. So YouTube brainiacs Vsauce3 played "what if. " What if Thor's hammer were made from a dying star instead of forged in a dying star (because we all know that's how it was made ). It would be inconceivably dense and heavy. Mayhem would ensue. It would attract human bodies faster than the speed of sound, ripping them apart with its pull. If the god of thunder were to set it down (say, to give his impressive muscles a rest)
