Just when we thought we couldn’t love Neil DeGrasse Tyson more than we already do, the famous astrophysicis is now using science to explain Game of Thrones, and throw some shade at President Trump. He also managed to do all of this on Twitter before the new 280 character limit has come into effect. Maybe Neil DeGrasse Tyson should be King of the North…and POTUS. We would vote for both.

This isn’t the first time the author, Harvard grad, Hayden Planetarium director, and host of the series Star Talk has used his expertise to evaluate the validity of science in pop culture. He previously called out the 2013 Oscar winning film Gravity and took on this past summer’s biggest films, including Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Alien: Covenant and Baywatch. Dwayne Johnson should have carried THREE fridges, FYI.

Now DeGrasse Tyson has set his sights on the world of Westeros, or more specifically, Season 7 of Game of Thrones. Continuing to be the coolest, DeGrasse Tyson waited for the world to catch up on the latest season before breaking down the science behind dragons.

First, there was the good

Take that, Renaissance painters

Dragons = bats

Onto the not so good

DeGrasse Tyson also weighed in on the strength of dragon fire from the now dead Viserion, compared to his brothers Drogon and Rhaegal. The cooler the colour of the flame, meaning the closer it moves away from red and towards blue, the hotter the temperature. So, this means that Viserion’s blue flame will be able to do much more damage than the red flames coming from his brothers.

In conclusion, everyone is going to die at the end of Game of Thrones. Maybe just go into the final season with this mindset and anyone who survives will be a bonus.

In DeGrasse Tyson’s final comment on the matter, he pointed out that, in the world of Game of Thrones at least, bending the knee is a sign of respect and loyalty.

We’ll just leave this here.
