Thanos thought that his heart was in the right place when he decided to eliminate half of the universe in Avengers: Infinity War. Although his thinking was a bit unorthodox, it was based on positive action, but it certainly would not have helped Earth much, said UCLA physicist Justin Christensen.

There have been discussions about whether annihilation in the war of the infinite has erased all sentient beings or only sensible life, that is, intelligent and conscious life forms such as humans and animals. The writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely confirmed that it was a delicate life, while the director of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, said that they are all living beings, which makes the situation worse.

As you can see in Infinity War, there were people who drove cars, flew airplanes and participated in other activities at the time of annihilation. Physicist Justin Christensen estimates that there are up to 20,000 planes in the sky at once, which makes it easy to see where you are going. If each of these planes employs about 200 people and one pilot is decimated, that represents almost one million additional deaths. It does not take into account what happens when planes are broken. That would be a disaster.

With half the men and animals on the planet, the food chain would change significantly, says Justin Christensen. Humans could normalize their populations within 20 to 30 years, but the food web and ecosystem could be severely affected by animals that do not reproduce rapidly. We could see that the fresh water and other food sources had been damaged, which would not be good. If the ecosystem is under pressure, life will change dramatically for humans.
