Pixar Movie ‘UP’ Inspires National Geographic Project
National Geographic is launching a new show in this fall by the name ‘How Hard Can it Be‘ and we are here to show you one experiment that was performed for this show. A team of scientists and engineers have replicated the balloon house of Pixar movie UP in South America where they managed to raise it 10 stories from the ground. The team used 300 weather balloons for this experiment but remained far from breaking the World Record of cluster balloon flight that is 10,000 feet.
Scenes from Pixar Movie UP
If you are not a big fan of animation, here are few scenes from the movie ‘UP’. The old fellow by the name of Carl Fredricksen managed to fulfill his childhood ambitions of Adventures in South America in an age when he could barely move his bones. Fed up with the society he flew away along with his beloved house attaching thousands of helium balloons to it.
The whole movie revolves around the flying house and Carl’s attachment to it. This was the house we he grew old with his wife, this was the place where his wife died leaving all her memories with him. This increased the love of the house in Carl’s heart and he would take the house anywhere he go. But in the end he eventually let go of the house in order to save a kid and a bird. I think now you have the perfect reason to go and see this movie.
National Geographic Experiment
So it’s true, real world does get inspired by Hollywood. Although only two men were inside they house but behind there was a whole team who made this experiment successful. There were 300, 8 feet weather balloons attached to a light weight house with 16 x 16 feet base, and 18 feet in height.
There’s a pointer to a discussion here: If people do get inspiration from Hollywood, then maybe we need to worry because Hollywood is mostly inspired by violence, as reflects in their movies.
