A new project, titled “Gundam the Origin Technology Labo”, aims to scientifically test and recreate scenes from anime series “Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin”.

Produced in conjunction with Animax Broadcast Japan and led by Gundam production studio Sunrise, the project is timed to coincide with the May 21st release of the third film in the series, “Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin III – Dawn of Rebellion”. The project will use the resources of JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) to bring the series’ scientific side to life.

Since its inception, the Gundam series’ portrayal of outer space, robots, and other scientific phenomena has inspired young viewers to pursue scientific careers once they become adults. The project aims to continue this tradition by working with some of those same adults to make Gundam’s scientific ideas a reality for a new generation.

Project updates will be revealed through the official Gundam portal site, Gundam.info. Premium anime channel Animax will also be unveiling a variety of “Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin” projects of their own.
