Game of Thrones may have been set in the fictional world of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, it was heavily inspired by medieval history and real-life human interactions. The tremendous success of the show has forced scientists all over the world to conduct various researches related to various aspects of the show. Recently, a group of four scientists at the University of SydneyYouseph Ibrahim, Cian Clinton-Gray, Irene Koutsoumbis, and Sabin Zahirovic — joined forces to breathe reality into fiction – by making a scientifically accurate tectonic map of the world of Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels.

A tectonic map portrays the architecture of the outer layer of the Earth. Since the Martinverse is purely fictional, there was no way of telling how the geological profile of Westeros or other lands in his stories looked like, until now.

The creators described how they came up with their video in The Conversation. “In this project, we worked with ‘evidence’ collected by us and others from the Game of Thrones fictional world,” they write. “This included evidence of past volcanism and mountain building, which are often the smoking gun for tectonic plate convergence and collision.”

In the case of the Games of Thrones world, we’ve assumed the continents of Westeros and Essos broke apart 25 million years ago to open the Narrow Sea. We mapped this occurring much like the unzipping of the African continent along the East African Rift Valley at a similar time.”

Maybe this little info will jog up Martin’s mind and he’ll be inspired to finish Winds of Winter at a faster pace. Let’s hope it really does. Feel free to leave a comment below!

Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin is one of the most accomplished writers of recent times. The success of the TV adaptation of his novels increased his number of readers exponentially. However, for nearly a decade, he hasn’t been able to write the next book in the novel series A Song of Ice and Fire, known as the ‘Winds of Winter‘. Game of Thrones TV show has already ended, and he’s on his way to produce an animated TV short film with Vincent D’Onofrio.

George R.R. Martin is producing an animated short film called “Night of the Cooters.” Vincent D’Onofrio will direct and star as the voice of a sheriff in the town of Pachuco, Texas, which becomes the site of a Martian invasion. It’s an adaptation of a 1987 science fiction novel by Howard Waldrop.

Martin told Deadline, “Night of the Cooters is a short story, and our version is going to be a short film. I’d guess it will come in somewhere between 20 and 30 minutes, shot with a combination of live-action and state-of-the-art animation. If you loved the story, we think you will love our movie.”
