In 2009, the audience worldwide has gained happy moments in “Up“, a new computer-animated comedy-adventure film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and presented in Disney Digital 3-D. In 2012, we will have the chance to enjoy an interesting show in an American channel recreating such an awesome movie. Ben Howie, producer of the new series “How Hard Can It Be”, said that they “found it is actually close to impossible to fly a real house.” Therefore, in practice, they built a lightweight one attached by 300 weathered balloons.
On March 3rd, the scientists of National Geographic Channel have turned Disney/ Pixarâ??s Oscar-winning film â??Upâ? into real. The crew including some engineers and many of volunteers lifted successfully a house using 300 colorful weathered balloons filled up with helium tanks.
The house shell was measured 16 feet wide and 18 feet tall. This notable event took place in a private airport outside of Los Angeles supervised by specialists in balloon.
In an impressive experiment in efforts to make movie magic happen in real life, American scientists have introduced a flying house like in “Up”.
The experiment was carried out to serve for a new show called â??How Hard Can it Be?â? of National Geographic Channel made public in 2012.
The Channel declared its tiny house hit world record for the biggest cluster balloons flight to reach 3,048m in height above California‘s High Desert and float across the sky for 1 hour.
The event was captured by ABCâ??s Good Morning America.
The house was amazing to stay up in the sky for such a long time.
“What we can do is a kind of flying a lightweight house safely with people inside.” the producer Ian White spoke.
What a wonderful experience!
