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.

Derek Diedricksen isn’t just a man with too much time on his hands, he is a man who has found a way to turn other people’s junk into something beautiful and meaningful. The Stoughton Massachusetts resident makes micro-shelters in his backyard. The tiny houses are made out of shipping pallets, castoff storm windows and discarded kitchen cabinets. The largest is about 24 square feet and the smallest is 4 feet tall at its highest point. Each microhouse costs less than $200 to make and comes equipped with transparent roofing.
