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… 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.
