NASA named new constellations after The Incredible Hulk and Godzilla
There are additionally new star groupings named after the Tardis and Thor’s Hammer, Mjolnir!
In festivity of the tenth commemoration of NASA’s Fermi Gamma-beam Space Telescope, NASA has named 21 new gamma-beam heavenly bodies.
NASA has um… gone somewhat off the reservation with regards to naming them.
Take “Mass” for instance, or, in other words The Incredible Hulk!
That’s right, that is The Incredible Hulk okay.
Consider this: These groups of stars aren’t founded on stars, they’re founded on gamma beams, as seen by the Fermi telescope. Which bodes well when you consider that Bruce Banner turned into The Incredible Hulk because of gamma radiation. Virtuoso!
“Gamma beams are the most grounded type of light,” clarified NASA. “They pack enough punch to change over into issue under the correct conditions, a change both Banner and the Hulk would unquestionably appreciate.”
Be that as it may, the Hulk isn’t the main popular culture reference NASA has figured out how to drop. There’s additionally a gamma-beam heavenly body named after Mjolnir, Thor’s mallet and the Tardis, from Doctor Who.
They’ve additionally named one after Godzilla.
Godzilla’s trademark weapon is its ‘warm beam,’ a red hot stream,” said NASA, which has obviously invested an abundant excess energy considering this. “This looks somewhat like gamma-beam planes related with dark openings and neutron stars.”
