This is really nuts. The people from National Geographic have built a house inspired by the Pixar movie Up! Yes, a house tied to gas balloons that actually flies. I’m so giddy I can barely type.
Sure, the 16 by 16 feet house is not a full house, but I don’t care. It flies for real, thanks to three hundred weather balloons full of helium. The Up! house—which will be part of a new National Geographic TV series called How Hard Can It Be?—was 10 stories high, including the balloons. It reached 10,000 feet and flew for about one hour.
