just for fun: up, up and . . . is that a flying house?

11 Mar

For their series “how hard can it be” the national geographic channel decided to take it’s inspiration from a little outside the box.  They looked to the house of mouse and to their animated tale, UP.   Now we admit it, we got all misty eyed during the opening segment of this lavish movie, though we never thought we would see a real life house high in the sky, tethered to helium filled balloons!

The specially constructed house, weighed more than 2000pounds, and it took more than 300 helium filled weather balloons to lift it off the ground.  The flight lasted around an hour and reached an altitude of 3000ft.  Now thats magic!
