Real-life: The Animated Movie 'Up'

Wow! I found this from TheCoolhunter.net in Facebook! My friends like this! Cool, can you try to make this if you want to fly around sky? You sure watched the animated movie "Up" before. It's very wonderful and make the children happy if they see this real one!

That is why the staffs of National Geographic want to create the children dream to become reality! I don't know if someone can stay inside a house when it goes up for long time?

It is not easy to find the 300 helium-filled weather balloons...If we use normal balloons, it sure broken so easily. This is my review only. :P





National Geographic Channel have created a real-life version of the animated film Up — launching a house thousands of metres into the air using balloons.

A team of scientists, engineers, and two world-class balloon pilots successfully launched a 16' X 16' house 18' tall with 8' coloured weather balloons from a private airfield east of Los Angeles, and set a new world record for the largest balloon cluster flight ever attempted.

Using 300 helium-filled weather balloons, the lightweight building reached an altitude of more than 3000m and remained in the air for about an hour. From source "TheCoolhunter.net" - http://www.thecoolhunter.net/events
