The House from Up - Now in Real Life!
Yes, that’s a yellow house… with balloons… and it floats! O_O
On March 5th, National Geographic Channel and a team of scientists, engineers and two balloon pilots launched a yellow colored house with weather balloons from a private airfield somewhere east of Los Angeles re-creating the scene from Pixar’s animated movie UP. They even set a new world record for largest balloon cluster flight ever attempted.
The whole event was captured on film and will be part of a new National Geographic Channel series, How Hard Can It Be? which will premiere this fall 2011.
