Baron Prášil

Loading...
"In 1961, Karel Zeman made the finest film adaptation of the outlandish tales of Baron Munchausen, made famous in the 1786 book by Gottfried August Bürger. The incredible adventures of the bragging Baron come to life in a film celebrating the courage and imagination of dreamers and poets. Zeman took inspiration from the engravings in the 1862 edition, the work of one of the greatest illustrators of the 19th century Gustave Doré. The director achieved a visually captivating style by color-tinting the original black and white footage. In the movie, Munchausen's humorous narrative contrasts with the romantic tale of a modern fantasist Tony, who becomes the good Baron's rival in love."--Container.

Spacesuit [electronic resource]

Although everyone thinks of space as very cold, in fact, if you stood on the sunny side of the moon, the temperature would be hot enough to boil the blood in your body. Spacesuits are designed to protect astronauts from these extremes of temperature. The Rough Scientists have to collectively design a cooling system for their very own spacesuit. And to test it out, at the end of day three, they're going to have to go to Death Valley and do a mock moon walk in their spacesuit - hopefully staying deliciously cool.
