    The UP House in real life!! This incredible floating house was inspired by Pixar’s animated hit movie Up. National Geographic and a team of scientists, engineers, and balloon pilots teamed up to successfully launch a 16′ X 16′ house 18′ tall with 300 colored weather balloons. Reaching an altitude of over 10,000 feet, the team set a World Record for the largest balloon cluster flight ever attempted. The flight lasted approximately one hour.

    the real Up house. The National Geographic Channel, a team of scientists, engineers, and two world class balloon pilots successfully launched a house from a private airfield east of Los Angeles. The launch inspired by the Disney/Pixar film Up set a new world record for the largest balloon cluster flight ever attempted. The house and balloons measured more than 10 stories high and reached an altitude of over 10,000 feet, flying for approximately one hour.
