Up and away


Ever wish you could reenact part of the movie "Up"?


Well, some folks at the National Geographic Channel did and with the help of a team of engineers and scientists they launched a 16' X 16' X 18' tall house into the air using 300, 8', multi colored weather balloons! 


Awesome.

I absolutely love that they did this! What fun it must have been to be part of this project! (Though in the end, I would have stayed on the ground.)

This is awesome! I watched UP for the first time a few weeks ago, and I cried my eyes out. It wasn't at all what I expected - it was better!

It could only be better if Russell was waving from the front porch.
