300 Balloons Used to Float House

Click this one for the picture: Scientists, engineers, and two balloon pilots teamed together to replicate the floating house from Pixar’s Up–and set the world record for the largest balloon cluster flight while they were at it. They tied 300 multi-colored weather balloons to a 16-feet-by-18-feet house. The house reached an altitude of over 10,000 feet and stayed aloft for more than an hour.
