Science in American Culture 1 Avatar is a science fiction movie taking place on an alien moon, making use of science technology that supersedes that of the world we live. The paper points to the magnification of science in the movies. The first element of science is the Pandora, as the film takes place on a fictional Pandora. According to scientists, Pandora is Saturn-Sized gas giant found in the real Alpha system. Polyphemus is 4.4 light years and remains the closest star to the earth. The movie is more of science fantasy compared to science fiction. The movie makers do not give a focus on entirely how the movie relates to science but rather the means that certain aspects of the film and science relate. The analysis provides a fundamental analysis of the relationship that exists between avatar and science. From the first example, we identify that the number of trees found in Pandora is the same amount of the neurones in the human brain. According to Thurs, (2013), the implication that we obtain out of that being that we may process and store information in the trees. Also, a planetary consciousness gets attainable in the movie. Tropical rainforest consumes most parts of Pandora, pointing that the planet may have existed near the sun to have taken advantage of the sun’s heat. Years back the possibility seemed unattainable, new alien planets found out that gas giants live near stars. The life indicated in the gas giant’s moon posed several limitations, Thurs, (2013). The moons that exist in Jupiter experience intense heat radiation, and they undergo an intense radiation of ions and electrons located beneath its magnetic field. Pandora has features that remain unsuitable for personal consideration for healthy life. According to the movie, Pandora is an ore, known as unobtanium, being a conductor 2 that operates best at optimum conditions. The same manner that superconductors in the real world may float, Pandora mountains appear to float in magnetic pockets dotting the surface of the moon, Thurs, (2013). There is. However, an element of concern being that magnetic field may cause problems to technology just as is the case with real life. Technology Artificial individuals are the main characters in the movie, hence the name avatar. The bodies in the video operate through means of though in wireless perspective. The avatar bodies take after the humanoid blue-skinned native race, known as Navi. The avatar, however, entail the DNA of people like humans have DNA elements in ourselves. So, they have an integration of human and alien DNA. According to science, the DNA of people appears different from that of foreigners from all dimensions. The advancements in computer intelligence, with computers being able to perform nearly all the duties that a human being appears to show, such as robots dreaming and feeling pain, as is the similar case with the avatar. The movie science is a revelation how the American doctors apply telepresence units to let medics indulge in sophisticated life-saving operations. According to Mahoney, and Carmine, (2010), we may also add that humans elicit AMP suits and skeletons that are robotic in nature imitating the moves of the driver and offers them an immeasurable strength that enabled them to face off with dinosaur-like aliens. Reports indicated that using the same; the American army tried for several decades to bring forth exoskeletons that may increase the strength of soldiers through the 3 application of combustion hydraulics that contains engines behaving in the same manner as artificial muscles. Aliens Pandora life entailed numerous aspects ranging from dragon-like animals that kept flying around, extremely tall trees, and Navi. Worst of all being that Navi had blue skin and grew to almost ten feet tall. The relative gravity on earth exceeded that of the earth, as things experience less pressure that seemed to pull them downwards unlike the case of the earth, (Mahoney, & Carmine, 2010). The animals in Pandora are hexapods, with six limbs, or three pairs of limb and leg combination. The presence of six or more limbs could get attributed to a Pandora world that faces less amount of gravity, so they use the legs to support themselves. However, a person may never totally rely on that as there exist creatures in the earth that have got six arms, for instance, the insects, making the six limbs an element of real life. The Navi in Avatar are tetrapods, or merely have four legs like human beings. The intrigue behind limbs of Navi points their resemblance with dragon-like animals, unlike the natives that exist in the movie. According to Mahoney, and Carmine, (2010), it may or not be true that Banshees or Navi emanated from the class of hexapods and got rid of a pair of limbs the same way that snakes perform when they grow. The Pandoran species of animals had nostrils within their bodies unlike the case of rational beings having theirs on their faces, in other cases, they had more than two nostrils. The other animals meant that their respiratory and digestive tracks got integrated into one part, thus putting them at a risk of getting choked. 4 References: Mahoney, K. P., & Carmine, A. (2010).
