Um homem numa viagem de milhares, talvez milhões de anos, viajando através do universo numa bolha espacial. Pode não ser fácil destrinçar o que é real e imaginário no último filme de Darren Aronofsky, The Fountain, mas eu confesso-me rendido à ideia desta viagem imortal a uma nébula à beira do colapso. E se acham que isso é estranho, vejam as imagens impressionantes da Bubble Nebula, também chamada de NGC7635. Um violento vento espacial e radiação intensa de uma estrela, que se supõe ter 10 a 20 vezes o tamanho do Sol, deflagrou uma estrutura de gás radiante e material denso que se transformou numa nuvem molecular.
E algumas pessoas acharam que o filme era incompreensível...
One man on a journey for thousands, maybe millions of years, travelling across the universe in a space bubble. It may not be easy to discern from what’s real and imaginary in Darren Aronofsky’s The Fountain, but I for one am surrendered to the idea of this immortal voyage into a dying nebula. And if you think that’s weird, check out those striking images of the (no kidding) Bubble Nebula, also called NGC7635. A fierce stellar wind and intense radiation from a star, which likely has a mass 10 to 20 times that of the Sun, has blasted out the structure of glowing gas against denser material in a surrounding molecular cloud.
And some people thought the film was bizarre…

The architecture blog A Barriga de um Arquitecto / The Belly of an Architect (written in bilingual Portuguese-English) is mainly focused on contemporary architecture and urban design, covering recent works from Portuguese architects as well as projects of international significance.
My name is Daniel Carrapa. I was born in Lisbon, Portugal, in 1973. I’m an architect living in Évora, a nice historical town that was included in the World Heritage List by UNESCO in 1986. I’m married, have 4 cats – Matilde, Patanisco, Olivia, Lisa – and 1 dog – Moby. Moby is a three-legged dog. He’s okay. I graduated as an architect in 1996 (FAUTL Lisbon Faculty of Architecture). I am also an authority on cat litter and will provide expert advice upon request.
