    I can say with certainty that the Universal Logo that was introduced about 25 years ago or so was made of Solid Brass - about 1.25 inches thick. I made them for the design studio that was commissioned to create the new Universal opening. I used a company that had a Wire EDM machine (Electro Discharge Machining) to cut the letters into separate pieces. It was shot with a motor control camera system that "flew" the letters in one by one , with the proper offset to give the proper spacing for the letters. I would assume that the letters are now on some execs office at Universal . . they were each very heavy !

      So it would be a lot lighter in total, but if it ends up melting, doesn't brass give off toxic fumes when it melts? I wonder what impact that would have.

    • Zacabeb

      There's a fun story about the opening titles for Waterworld. The concept in those titles is that the Universal logo appears as normal, then the Universal text fades out and the camera starts descending towards Earth while the oceans flood the continents. The VFX company hired to do the opening titles, PSF, assumed that the then current Universal logo (mid-90s) had been done with CGI and asked for the assets to be sent over. They did get the assets sent over - a 4-foot globe encased in a wooden crate.
      In the end they had to recreate the Earth and surrounding space elements from scratch, with the Universal text carefully rotoed and composited in from a scan of the existing optical title elements.

    The Solid Brass Logo that I fabricated for the Universal Studios Logo, was for a company I believe called Studio Effects - they had also been part of the refresh for the Paramount Studios Movie Introduction . This was shot at a facility called the Chandler Stages located in the Marina Del Rey area of LA, where they had the large Motion Control Cameras System that shot the Letters as separate elements. If there was any CGI it would have been in the very early days of Digital Compositing - but that was in post production which I had no involvement.

  • Merennulli
    Merennulli Hace un mes +1

    I know your scenario was using some magic force to keep the logo (generally) in place, but it would be fun to see it play out all the way. The logo is well within the Roche limit so it would be ripped apart and rain down on Earth, but as it did, it would also fall closer to Earth and have greater gravitational impact as the center of the letters mass descended. There would be a point where the remnants of the letters would have greater local gravitational pull than the Earth from the surface of Earth, though it would probably be VERY brief. Of course, that one's not so easy of a calculation. You might have to get Scott to take over the spreadsheet at that point.

    @CorridorCrew I think it’s great that you chose platinum as the main material of the letters for aesthetic purposes, but can solid platinum hold its density without collapsing into a black hole? The heaviest element a star fuses before it collapses into itself is iron, and platinum is way heavier than iron, so I was just wondering if the letters might all spontaneously become black holes.

    Great video! Just a thought: wouldn’t the vector-math-cancellation of opposite forces only work if the letters on both side are of equal mass? For example, the ‘i’ in universal would probably have less mass than ‘s’ on the opposite side. So there maybe some more chaos! Haven’t watched Scott’s video yet, so maybe it’s addressed there.

    I *HIGHLY* recommend the book Seveneves by Neal Stephenson. Much of this conceptualization aligns with his theories on what would happen if the moon were to suddenly explode. During the book, he goes from the hard sci-fi of the physics of such a cataclysm, to increasingly speculative forms as the story travels deeper and deeper into the future. @wren, maybe a collab episode exploring those ideas with him?

  • Chris Gilbert
    Chris Gilbert Hace 3 meses +163

    Since Universal is a movie company, I think the letters should be made as if they are props. My assumption is they would be wood with the minimal amount of internal structure. Gathering enough wood to make that would cause its own set of massive ecological issues.

      @swagdog100 nah, plastic is a cheap material, being outside the atmosphere it would definitely break, and we see no cracks or breaks in it at all. Probably metal.

    The last bit about the two planets remind me of the 2012 movie Upside Down, except the planets there are of equal size and the laws of physics is just weird. It’s a mix of romance and sci-fi and I found it to be very fascinating.

    Might be neat to see the amount of food and drink the average person (or even including the not-average person) goes through in a lifetime. I think there's a good bit to explore in this idea.

    I love this thought experiment! It would fit so well into Randall Munroe's "What if?"-Series, which I highly recommend!

    As many commenters wrote, this was a fun experiment.
    And while thinking the letters as solid platinum, I'd have thought them hollow (weirdly shaped, I admit) spaceships, therefore hollow, which would completely change the calculations.

    About a year and a half ago I remade a "simulation" of how the Universal logo animation would look like if the earth was a plane dish: "Flatversal". It wasn't as scientifically sophisticated as this thought experiment - I was struggling enough just getting the whole thing to work and look sorta nice (and then butchered everything in post) - but should I revisit the project a second time, I'll definitely try including the letter's gravity in the simulation :D
    This video was a lot of fun to watch!

    Hey Wren, I just saw a Short about a kid leaving the door open and his dad tells him “are you trying to cool down the whole world?” The kid ends global warming by telling everyone to leave their doors open with the AC on.
    Could this be possible? 😅

    It would be nice to know how things would have turned out, if the logo was assumed to be hollow (which would be more realistic, if it were actually build).

      No known material could support a structure this big. It will be pulled apart by the earth's, the moon's and the sun's gravity while also collapsing under it's own. Debris rain down on earth as a less devastating but still a potentially civilisation ending meteor shower. The end.

      Also op asked for a "realistic" take on the idea, so i pumped out something more or less realistic.

    I don't know if you have the same experience as me, but if I watch this video at 1440p HD (automatically chosend by ESclips) some 10 seconds of the video are missing and the audio becomes unsynchronized (it doesn't show the Universal letters /sequence when Wren hears the music and points at the horizon)

    There was a movie about two planets that were connected at a single point but I can’t remember what it was called. I’m curious why you didn’t touch on the orbital speed the logo had to have to keep from colliding into the earth. Great video though, very in depth!
