Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Gene money were invested in trying to reproduce that experiment and it never worked so finally by the mid nineties people decided that this really wasn't mainstream this was just an unfortunate or an accident or something that they did did anyone ever look into how much palladium these dues owned I do not know the answer is there's still plenty of people in the world today who think that there might still be something to that cold fusion thing nowadays we call that low energy diffusion reactions or something L. E. F. R. Research and so that's why palladium still holds a little bit of interest in the fictional world of trying to a power something from nothing so so let's go straight to particle accelerators if you're gonNA make GonNa make an element that you don't happen to have handy so what we do we take an atom and we bombarded with lots and lots of neutrons okay and in the proper circumstance one of those neutrons will stick or a few of them will stick and then you create an environment where the new element is born because neutrons will transform into protons through specific processes having to do with the weak nuclear force so so basically in principle we can make any any element we want so the whole dream of alchemy is real today it is absolutely real canonical you're right we could make gold out of lead but it's cheaper to go buy it at the at the Corner Gold Trauma and right yes and I will mention that to this day Toronto Murs we think that the best manufacturing of elements comes from stars when for example a star goes supernova the elements surrounding it are a bombarded with so many neutrons sometimes thousands of neutrons per second that there are possibly quantum tunneling reactions that can happen that create elements with atomic numbers in the one fifties even in the two hundred only they don't stay around in our universe for very long decay almost immediately so let's go onto thors hammer okay again he's he's still constipated so I just want to say that when I saw the movie the one that has Natalie Portman playing an astrophysicist you say that are angry about it's no just letting people know that my people my profession shows up movies I'm just saying Don't do it there was an astrophysicist in topgun Kelly mcgillis was an astrophysicist why because she was an expert in the fourteen planes round of us are but she was an astrophysicist I'm just saying about you know is in danger zone Nicholas cage was an astrophysicist in the movie knowing in the movie knowing okay it's really should've been called not knowing actually if you saw the block but but so we out there so anyway I'm watching a movie and I'm thinking I wonder how heavy the hammer is and there's a scene where his father talks about about Mounier the name of the hammer right and says the dirt is forced in the heart of a dying star I got this it's made it in a dying star we we know we astrophysics people so I went home got densities of the densest dying star got pulsar dense pack neutrons here and I said I'm GonNa make thors hammer out a neutrons so I got a replica of his hammer the volume figured out how many neutrons could fit in it and then I tweeted how much that hammer would way and I said if thors hammer is made of neutron star material as implied by legend it would weigh the equivalent of a of three hundred million elephants. uh and that's all that's all I didn't know if you take the hammer like that and you dropped it it would fall through the earth as if it were not there cut all the way through the the earth come out the other side and then come back and oscillate back and forth ripping out the interior guts of the earth as we rotated it would not be cool so then you must know that about to say is true wherever is someone at Comecon who knows more about it than you okay no matter who you are it is like a semi infinite continuing of expertise and that's why I love comic con a thirty six hours yes it's just a terrific place within thirty six hours somebody tweeted back Dr Tyson you're wrong about doors hammer is three hundred fifty six billion events I was apparently really wrong really yes so apparently they cited a marvel comics trading card from the nineteen ninety s that said Munier made out of fictional material oru and it weighs exactly six point two pounds the point so I'm saying I like my answer better yeah but your hammer you can't use it to actually do anything except I've done weight so so okay so I I mentioned this one time her like a superfan in the front row and this at six point two found did they say on the planet it weighs six point two are not confined the planet where the six point two hammer weighs three hundred billion elephants and then H. G. T. V. tweeted is it a ball pain Mr or is it a regular him the same what can you build so here's the problem I thought it was made out of neutron star material okay but that's not what he said the movie is made in a neutron star in in the in the field of dying star and then they capture that in the in the Guy Infinity words that's the whole contraption they use the power of the neutron stars towards the guys so let me and I love that out and this segment tells about vibration yeah yeah the vibration was introduced in fantastic four number fifty two which came out and stuff how do you now he's a he's making it up no this is the wrong audience make stuff that is so true yeah right it's a thing okay go so fantastic I own fantastic four number fifty two that's why what does it do it it's a beat up old copy it smells all what is your what is this con okay this is why don't you share the love of a beat up old nineteen sixty five comic book thank you Tell Me Tell me about the properties I brain eum originally when it was designed by BRAINIAC was just able to absorb any kinetic energy in other words just magically dissipated so any impact on vibe radium made it as if it were never there that made my Kevlar yes better okay I mean so good brain and in fact ah the Super Society of Kanda which again was introduced this time nineteen sixty five I mean Stan Lee and Jack Kirby were so ahead of their time right the super eighty in the middle of Art Africa but the at that time the Black Panther was not spiritual sensiti is now that he has the powers of the ancestors so forth so well trained and so smart that he was a superhero and he had great technology and he was really talented in that way but he had albums with this guy named irving claw who had killed his father in a much more elegant way than it was done in the movies while though was okay in the movies too I guess I am I right that the movie blackadder had to hobbits in it hobbits you mean from Middle Earth Yeah I come right there I miss them yes yeah okay now you can't just dropping hop it's in the middle Oh okay that's cool that's different that's different okay what about second breakfast okay. taking the hobbits to ice and tell me about vibration so vibe radium later on was actually mixed in to captain America's shield from one thousand nine hundred eighty s so it was a mixture and Alloy Ovalles Brain EUM and adamantine him which made it even stronger under than pure adamant which is what will renew clause they're made of an ultra NHS body etcetera as you well know so modern modern viper neom as in the marvel cinematic universe right at the very beginning it's claimed as the world's hardest metal right the world's strongest medal it turns out that the strength of it is completely secondary to this amazing ability for it to absorb Connecticut Energy that's what made it special so biennium is cool but it was not because it's hard but because it's literally oft power the ability to take whatever it gets and be able to spread it out and produce this both marvelous technology and also incredible weapons of if dead in a black man I don't know what is so so it doesn't absorb it keeps the energy and you can do things with love that actually can mimic that in some way in any way they storage battery that can take that's all we can take Connecticut Energy Jordan into potential energy and then put it back out yeah rubber ball right you know what man you have to be a whole about it I'm just saying I'm going to end the first segment on the comet you participating in Star Talk Live New York uh-huh squarespace that's right it is time to talk about squarespace.
