If you have seen Disney/Pixar’s UP, then this picture should remind you of the same. As a part of a new series called ‘How Hard Can it Be?’ by National Geographic channel, this balloon house was created and made to fly for real. A team of scientists, engineers and world-class balloon pilots were involved in the designing and execution of the flight of 16X16 ft house, weighing about 2000 pounds.
With the help of 300 colorful balloons, each of which measured 8ft when fully inflated, the house reached a height of 10,000 feet in air. The entire system about 10 stories high traveled for about an hour. Check out video below for the on-site action.
