Unveiling Iron Man's Destiny: Exploring the Dangers of Radiation in Avengers Endgame

The truth about Iron Man's fate in Avengers Endgame and the dangers of radiation exposure are explored in this video.

00:00:00 Discover the truth behind Iron Man's fate in Avengers Endgame and the physics of the Infinity Gauntlet snap. How much gamma ray energy does it release?

👉 In Avengers Endgame, Tony Stark sacrifices his life by snapping the Infinity Gauntlet to bring an end to Thanos's evil plans.

👉 The snap releases a tidal wave of radiation, mainly gamma rays, which have the highest energy among photons of light and can have harmful effects on the human body.

👉 According to Tony Stark, the Gauntlet with all six infinity stones has the power to energize a continent.

00:02:14 The video discusses the amount of energy released during Iron Man's snap and the potential radiation exposure. It highlights the significant amount of energy released and the potential danger of radiation for Iron Man.

💡 The annual power consumption in North America is used to calculate the energy released during a single snap.

🧪 Assuming a snap takes about a tenth of a second, there would be approximately 54 billion joules worth of energy released.

☢️ The Infinity Gauntlet snap would expose Tony, the character in the video, to a significant amount of radiation, which would result in the worst case of radiation poisoning in history.

00:04:28 The video discusses the dangers of radiation exposure and its effects on the human body. It explores the amount of radiation absorbed from various sources and compares it to the exposure levels of astronauts. The film's portrayal of radiation poisoning is analyzed in relation to real-life effects.

🌌 There are harmful radiation sources from space and food that we absorb.

📊 The measurement of radiation absorption is shown in millisieverts.

🚀 Astronauts and people on a trip to Mars experience higher radiation exposure.

00:06:44 The video discusses the effects of high levels of radiation exposure on the human body, using Iron Man as an example. It highlights the dangers and potential consequences of acute radiation exposure.

Exposure to high levels of radiation can lead to cellular damage, cognitive impairment, extreme nausea, and death.

A short infinity snap could expose Tony Stark to a lethal dose of radiation.

The flash of light produced by the snap may have harmful effects similar to radiation exposure.

Louis Slotin's dangerous experiment with radioactive plutonium resulted in a chain reaction and his eventual death.

00:08:59 This video discusses the dangers of radiation exposure and explores ways to make an infinity snap safer, including reducing the time and distance of exposure to decrease radiation intake.

🔑 The video discusses the death of a scientist due to exposure to radiation from a critical core.

🔑 The Infinity Gauntlet in the movie could release radiation and cause a flash of light.

🔑 To make an infinity snap safer, one can reduce the time of exposure, increase the distance from the Infinity Gauntlet, and use radiation protection.

00:11:14 Iron Man tried to protect himself from the radiation of the snap by moving the Infinity Gauntlet further away and using shielding. However, he was unable to find a perfect solution and ultimately sacrificed himself to save the universe.

🔍 Increasing the distance from the Infinity Gauntlet reduces the intensity of radiation.

🛡️ Shielding is necessary to protect against radiation, but gamma rays require special materials like lead or water.

⚙️ Iron Man could have used his nanotech suit to shield himself from the snap with the gauntlet, but it wasn't possible.

00:13:27 The Avengers explain Iron Man's fate with a scientifically accurate sendoff, while questioning the effectiveness of shielding in Endgame.

💡 The Avengers provided a satisfying explanation for Iron Man's sendoff by using radiation from the Story Arc Reactor.

🛡️ There was a problem with shielding in Endgame, as the Hulk's snap of the Infinity Gauntlet would have affected everyone in the room, including Iron Man.
