Seriously?....

 Seriously! This is no joke! The National Geographic Channel set a new world record this week for the largest balloon cluster flight ever attempted. The entire aircraft was 10 stories high and made it to an altitude of 10,000 feet. The project is part of a new series called How Hard Can It Be which will air this fall. I have yet to read how the aircraft got down! You can see more amazing photos on My Modern Met and The National Geographic Blog.

Jacqueline - haha...I can just imagine your kids telling you and you saying "no, no, that's impossible". But it's not, haha. :)

Tali - I know! I mean it's one of those things you hope could happen but would never think was possible! Good old National Geographic!
