In the end-credits scene of Captain Marvel, the Tesseract was thrown up by Goose on Nick Fury's desk. I remembered the final fight scene in Captain America: The First Avenger where the Tesseract was dropped after the Skull was teleported to Vormir. It 'burned' through the metal walkway after dropping (or is it the floor? nor sure of the right term) on the ship, as seen here:
However, why did it do not 'burn' through Fury's desk? It seems to be made of just wood, compared to the metal on Red Skull's ship. Is there some kind of special requirement so that it does not 'burn' through someone or something?
