Real life floating house

Written by | 2 comments »

I remember growing up watching National Geographic & Discovery Channel religiously every day, their programming was both surprising and interesting.

Well National Geographic surprised me again with their latest venture.¬†Remember Pixar’s movie “UP”? You know the one with the big floating house‚Ķ Well they’ve made it happen..

Using a total of 300 8′ colored weather balloons it floated for just over an hour to a maximum altitude of 3,050m (10,000ft) – Too bad it didn’t make it to the top of Paradise Falls..

    That is so amazing. I didn’t know I could love National Geographic more than I already do.
