This Real Science Fact Has Us All Worried About The Dragons On Game Of Thrones

Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers below!

But like, seriously have you not watched it yet?

Game of Thrones has been off the air for an eternity at this point, with a couple more eternities to go before its return. We’ve been theorizing, predicting, reacting, and waiting as usual, and the hype train is even more unstoppable now that we’re heading into the show’s final (final final) season.

The latest person to start combing through GoT for clues and details is none other than astro-physicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson. He started a twitter thread analyzing some science details from the show. Some of it bad:

And some of it good!

And some of it absolutely useless:

But then there was this one, which pointed out that the blue fire shooting out of Viserion’s face-hole at the end of the most recent episode would technically have to be a lot hotter than the fire from the other dragons:

“Ruh Roh,” as Scooby Doo would say.

That means that ice-zombie-dragon is, scientifically speaking, a s***load more dangerous than any other creature we’ve seen in the show. Which also makes sense considering we’ve seen him collapse half of the wall.

Sure, Neil’s suggestion is more “does this pass the nerd test” than anything else. But it’s still got us worried. If Viserion is spitting hotter fire than Tupac and Biggie combined, every other living thing on the show is in a lot of trouble. As if they weren’t already.

Looks like we’ll have to wait and see.
