Pixar’s UP House Laun… SQUIRREL!!!
National Geographic proves a team of scientists, a team of engineers and two world-class balloon pilots can out-do any fictitious old man by launching a 16′x16′ house with 300 8′ weather balloons. In doing so they set a world record for the largest balloon cluster flight ever attempted.
They reached 10,000 ft. and were airborn for about 1 hour.
This fall, NatGeo will be premiering the filming from this event in a show called How Hard Can It Be?
It’s pretty amazing what Pixar can inspire a team of geniuses to do on the weekend. Enjoy the pics:
