The Real Life Sized ‘Up’ House Flies High in the Skies

Posted by TurtleGirl On March - 9 - 2011

Did you ever watch the computer-animated comedy-adventure film ‘Up’ produced by Pixar Animation Studios?. It was a seriously awesome movie,  even if I did shed a tear or two. Do you remember the Engagement ring box we covered?.

There’s also been a video game of the animation and this has to be the next best thing. This month National Geographic Channel and a team of scientists, engineers, and two world-class balloon pilots successfully launched a 16′ X 16′ house 18′ tall with 300 8′ colored weather balloons from a private airfield east of Los Angeles, and set a new world record for the largest balloon cluster flight ever attempted.

The entire experimental aircraft was more than 10 stories high, reached an altitude of over 10,000 feet, and flew for approximately one hour.

This is pretty impressive stuff. I’m not sure I would ride in it to be honest, but it’s dam cool.
