The powerful but arrogant god Thor is cast out of Asgard to live amongst humans in Midgard (Earth), where he soon becomes one of their finest defenders.
According to the film's science advisor Sean Carroll, the Bifrost is and was meant to be called a wormhole, but Kevin Feige felt it was "too 1990s" a term to use (given that the Stargate series had popularized the phrase, and had also featured Norse gods). So ... ...

The hammer landed about 50 miles to the west of the town (according to the man in the diner). When Sif and Co. arrive, the SHIELD agent at the console says that it was about 50 miles to the north-west, placing it 75-80 miles from the town. Yet, when the Destroyer arrived, which was at the same location as Sif and Co, it was clearly on the outskirts of town.
SPOILER: There is a scene after the credits: Dr Selvig meets with Nick Fury, who asks him to examine the Tesseract from Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). Loki appears in a reflection on the wall influencing Selvig to agree.
