up – inspired balloon launch


on march 5th, the national geographic channel launched a real life balloon house from the disney animated film UP.  they attached 300 weather balloons that were 8 feet in diameter each to a  16 x 16 foot house and let it go!


the balloon house floated to 10,000 feet in the air and returned safely down to earth.  It was launched from a private air strip outside of LA.

this successful experiment has re-instilled my faith in humans! we CAN do anything!
