Up-Inspired Floating House


How is this for wonder?! On Saturday, National Geographic launched a 16×16′ house into flight, inspired by the Pixar movie Up, in what was the largest balloon cluster flight in history.

Launched from a private airfield outside LA at dawn, the creation was over 10 stories tall from top to bottom, reached an altitude of over 10,000 feet, and was in flight for over an hour.

A film of the event will air as part of a National Geographic series called “How Hard Can It Be” in fall 2011.


Is National Geographic getting their act together or what?! I have another post lined up for this week about another project of theirs! Who did they bring in? Suddenly they are doing tons of cool news-worthy stuff that is making them relevant again! Must do some investigating…
