How Cool Is This?

Have you seen the adorable Disney-Pixar movie "Up"? Ever since seeing that I always wondered if it could really happen. I daydreamed like a kid about being in a floating house suspended in the air by balloons. Guess what?  The National Geographic Channel did an "Up" inspired house. They used 300 8' weather balloons and a 16' X 16' house was lifted into the sky floating at an altitude of over 10,000 feet at one point. It flew for about an hour. If I am rich someday I am doing this! 

Isn't the house adorable?


  1. That is awesome! I always wondered if it was possible, too!

  2. What the awesome!?!? That is really cool, Kiki...thanks :)
