Why didn't an Asgardian go to Earth sooner? - A Kid Holding an Earth Conservation PLacard

In the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War couldn't they teleport someone to Earth sooner? When did they realize the ship belonged to Thanos?

If he did announce it early enough they could have teleported to Earth before Thanos attacked them. Was Loki willing to help his people?

If he was he could have revealed that he had the Tesseract and even though they didn't have the contraption they had in the first Avengers movie couldn't they use it as a group as in Guardians of the Galaxy?

Or give it to someone like Thor (or the Hulk, who in Endgame was shown to be very strong, if Loki was untrustworthy and Thor didn't want to leave his people, or maybe Heimdall) to go and warn Doctor Strange?

If they warned him early enough they could possibly have 4 Stones (the Tesseract, the Eye of Agamotto, Vision's Mind Stone and, since they knew where it was, the Reality Stone).

Best Answer

Given how dire the situation of the Asgardians looks at the beginning of Infinity War, I think this is simply a matter of no time to do it, because Thanos hit them fast and he hit them hard.

For starters, if you remember Ragnarok's mid-credits scene, you'll see that both Loki and Thor seemed awed by the ship they were seeing. They're surprised to see it (to say the least), and they just recovered from the Ragnarok battle - not sure they're already fit to go back to battle.

Next, they don't know who's? attacking them. The rescue message only mentions they're being attacked.

Asgardian PA: This is the Asgardian refugee vessel Statesman. We are under assault, I repeat, we are under assault - the engines are dead, life support failing.

Actually it also mentions that the ship isn't combat-ready. As Heimdall, the only person able to teleport someone to Earth, is on of the few soldiers it has, it's not a good idea to waste his fighting time sending another fighter away; people are going to die while he does that.

Our crew is made up of Asgardian families, we have very few soldiers here. This is not a warcraft. I repeat, this is not a warcraft!

Asgardians' regenerative abilities enable them to have longer lifespans. While humans generally perceive them as immortal, Odin has pointed out they are not. Loki noted that, even though they are not truly immortal, Asgardians live much longer, "give or take 5,000 years".

How did the surviving Asgardians get to Earth?

If you haven't seen the film, you may want to turn back. Thor: Ragnarok ends with the Asgardian survivors heading toward Earth when they are approached by a large ship. When Infinity War starts, moviegoers see Thanos and his Black Order inside Thor's ship with bodies of slain Asgardians littered everywhere.

How many Earth years are there in asgardian year?

In Thor, when speaking to Odin, he clarifies that they are not gods, nor immortal, to which Loki responds "Give or take 5,000 years". If we do some math and say 5,000 is the average life expectancy of a typical Asgardian, and divide that by 80 years here on earth, we get 62.5.
