How Avengers taught us physics

Since the movie Avengers Endgame hit theaters, audiences around the world have come to theaters many times. The movie was one of the biggest blockbusters of that year. But did you note the scientific theories put forth in the movie? Several terms related to the quantum theory were discussed in the film.

Tony Stark and Bruce Banner are two of the best minds in the MCU, Marvel Cinematic Universe — but they even get help from real-life scientists when it comes to mind control concepts. like navigating the Quantum Realm and doing a ‘trick-or-awesome time”. in Avengers: Endgame.

The time travel version of Endgame explains that it relies on a variety of theories, including string theory, to arrive at a version different from other popular cultures. “What [filmmakers] want to avoid is the obvious paradox of going back and changing something and then seeing things turn out. They just want to set a different tone in the movie.

General relativity

Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking said: “General relativity can allow time travel. “Sci-fi fans need not be discouraged.”

General relativity describes the universe as four dimensions — the familiar three dimensions of space, related to time. This explains gravity as this warping in spacetime.

The theory of relativity is weird and has blown a lot of people away, but you’re probably familiar with the idea of ​​being visualized in two-dimensional space with the sun and planets represented by heavy balls stretching a tall slab.

Wormhole

Wormholes are an integral part of sci-fi movies for good reason. They provide a way to connect different places and times in the universe, with two different mouths connected by a tube to cross from side to side.

The key to time travel in a wormhole is to accelerate one of its mouths to near-light speeds so that the clock runs relatively slowly there, then turn the mouth back to the stationary mouth where time passes slower. “By traversing the wormhole from right mouth to left, one can travel backward in time,” said Caltech’s Nobel Prize-winning physicist Kip Thorne, who helped legitimize scientific investigations of time travel, and colleagues in a 1998 paper on wormholes and time travel.

Well, that was all about avengers science and how it fitted in, to hear more such stories from us, do appreciate and follow us.
