Let’s give a moment to those mothers that can not have a child…
and to the husbands that stick by their wives regardless of wether they can have a child
This was the most realistic Disney movie ever.
yeah the part where the house flies off due to a bunch of balloons was very realistic
Actually they consulted an architect about how many balloons exactly it would take to do that to a house of that exact size and weight. They calculated that moment using a physics engine and took everything into account. Unless a professional architect as well as all of the physics professors who put their effort into that highly advanced physics engine are wrong, that take off was actually very doable and scientifically accurate.
GET WRECKED SON
It just got better
I somehow doubt that.
Like, helium lifts about 1 gram per litre. The average ballon contains about 14 litres. Not, the balloons in Up are really huge, let’s be fair and take the amount times ten. One of those balloons might just be abled to lift 140 grams.
So, how much does the house weigh? I’ll just use a rather average number here, that is 605.000 pounds (275.000) kilograms. In grams, that is 275.000.000.
Divide that by 140 and you get ~1.964.286.
That’s the amount of balloons you’d need to lift that. Adding in the weight of the balloons that would of course be even more, but the number is already high enough. There sure as hell weren’t nearly 2 million balloons carrying the house around.
