A Flying House (14 pics)

Posted in Pictures   7 Mar 2011   / 11637 views

Do you remember an animated movie Up where two characters fly in a house? National Geographic proved that a flying house can be a reality. Engineers, scientists and balloon pilots used 300 weather balloons to launch a 16’ X 16’ house into the air. They set a new world record for the biggest balloon cluster flight. The house was floating for about an hour, going 10,000 feet high.

 

The event was filmed from a private airstrip. It will premiere in autumn 2011 in How Hard Can It Be? series on National Geographic Channel.

AFAICT not a single thing was proven by this experiment, other than to confirm that people are always looking for cheap entertainment.
