NASA Identifies HULK and GODZILLA as New Constellations

Two new constellations have been spotted, both of pop culture reference, by one of NASA’s superior telescopes, in Hulk and Godzilla.

The Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope is currently celebrating its 10-year anniversary, reaching its milestone back on June 11. Fermi serves as a superior tool for the science community. It allows astronomers to study black holes, which pull matter in and accelerate gas outward at accelerated speeds. It also allows physicists to be able to study subatomic particles at greater energies than those seen from the ground and cosmologists are able to deduct information about the early birth and evolution of the universe.


Some other notable pop-culture constellations identified by NASA via the Fermi Telescope include: Mjolnir (Thor) and Tardis (Doctor Who). Click HERE for the complete list.

Hulk, aka Bruce Banner (who also might be Loki), will appear next in the fourth installment of the Avengers franchise, while Godzilla: King of the Monsters will debut in 2019, starring Millie Bobby Brown of Stranger Things fame.
