Some Scientific Explanations Behind Iron Man 2

Sometimes throwing it back is the best way to enjoy the present. Today we’re going to be digging in to a little science as it relates to the movie Iron Man 2 which is one of the most commercially successful marvel movies in history. This marvel movie grossed over $623.9 million dollars at the worldwide box office. In the year 2010, Iron Man 2 was the highest-grossing movie of the year and it also received an award for being the movie with the best visual effect at the Academy Awards.

After the first film in which the charismatic billionaire inventor Tony Stark builds a spectacular costume giving him superhuman abilities, it turns out that the palladium that feeds his arc reactor is slowly poisoning his system and he must find a harmless palladium replacement as soon as possible. I'm sure you are willing to know if some of the Iron Man 2 action scenes are real. Sit back, relax and enjoy some scientific insights about the movie.

Iron Man suit

Although this advanced technology does not yet exist, functional designs of portable exoskeletons have been constructed. These do not give the user additional human strength, they transfer the weight of the users' backpacks to the ground. These exoskeletons have been tested and proven to make the user feel lighter than normal; criteria essential for the flight.

It is interesting to know that technology teams around the world are working on similar models. This fantastic iron man suit also has the ability to fly with the help of jet engines. A more recent update of the Iron Man costume is a removable and multiform version that seems to respond to Tony telepathically.

According to science fiction film analyst James Kakalios, the latest version of the Iron Man costume works on the brain/machine interface. Thoughts generate currents in the brain that induce electromagnetic waves; this principle is similar to the underlying principle of television and radio transmissions.

Tony's costumes probably work on the same principle. Unlike previous Iron Man movies in which he gave voice commands, he simply thinks and anything he thinks of is executed by the suit. It is also safe to assume that Tony has inserted under his skin small radio frequency transmitters that transmit signals to his armour.

Plasma weaponry

This is the technology used by the villain Ivan Vanko in the film. Vanco wore electrified prostheses on his arms. As fictitious as this part of the film may seem, scientists are currently working on plasma weapons, such as the impressive beam that creates an electric charge via a stream of plasma. A more recent discovery is that of a spherical ray in a microwave oven that resembles the Iron Man's repulsive explosion.

Some drones and hacking

In Iron Man 2, Vanko develops an army of horrible humanoid drones for each branch of the army. This aspect of the film is a direct scientific fact; the army uses robots more than ever, whether they are automatic robots or remote-controlled robots. Drones and land robots are now used for various research purposes. Vanko's hacking ability has been clearly demonstrated by taking control of an Iron Man's suit. Of course, people are now professional hackers.

Have you ever wondered how the combination of Iron Man suit could withstand many impacts?

Tech news daily makes it known that it is possible Tony Stark took advantage of something under development; Carbon nanotube foam with high damping capacity.

Friendly Robot

Tony does most of his activities with the help of an AI he calls Jarvis. Although it sounds too smart to be true, Jarvis is similar to a technology developed by MIT a few years ago. A robotic desk lamp that calculates and predicts where you look, it then moves your flexible neck in that direction to illuminate that particular point. In the movie, Tony creates an emotional bond with his robot. Does this mean that such relationships can exist between humans and robots? According to the owner of the robot vacuum cleaner, Roomba machines should rather be treated as members of the family.

Creation of a new element

Although it is true that the collision at very high speed of subatomic particles can lead to the formation of a new element; an event that happens once every 10 years or so does not happen exactly as Tony Stark described it in Iron Man 2. It's important to know that the elements created by this method are extremely unstable and disintegrate almost as fast that they are created. On the basis of this fact, it is impossible to store these elements in an arc reactor, as indicated in the film.

So there you have it! The little scientific details behind the blockbuster “Iron Man 2”.
