This Astrophysicist Analyzed ‘Game Of Thrones’ And He Has Scientific Reasoning To Believe Westeros Is Fucked

You’ve probably heard of Neil deGrasse Tyson, who has become perhaps one of the most famous scientists of our time. This astrophysicist has written several books and has been featured in a variety of TV shows and documentaries, including Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, which he narrates.

If you want a taste of just how cool he makes science feel, just watch the video below. No, seriously, it’s actually pretty fantastic and not at all boring.

Anyway, though Tyson is a brilliant astrophysicist, he’s also a normal human being, which means he, too, is absolutely obsessed with Game of Thrones. Honestly, I should’ve seen that one coming.

So Tyson took to Twitter to talk about the newest season of Game of Thrones and how scientifically accurate (or inaccurate) it is. In fact, he may even have some insight about what’s to come in the future.

Let’s just say GoT doesn’t really like the laws of physics. At least, the White Walkers sure don’t seem to.

But fans weren’t satisfied with just this analysis. Because let’s be real, we all just want to know about the dragons.

And so Neil delivered: they got the thumbs up.

But here’s the thing about the dragons: you know how the Night King’s dragon has blue fire? It may be a little more concerning than you think — IF the producers decide to stick with scientific reasoning.

So, yeah, GoT is a fantasy show, but that doesn’t mean they won’t use the laws of physics in their plot line. Maybe this means nothing at all, but also, MAYBE IT MEANS SOMETHING.

Let’s just take a minute to soak all this in.

Do what you will with this information. Just remember: if anyone can predict the fate of Westeros, it would probably be Neil deGrasse Tyson. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
