real-life flying house

Did you see Up? I'll be honest... I haven't yet. But how cool is this experiment to create a real-life version of the flying house from the movie?

The National Geographic Channel was the genius— and those who had the sense of adventure to ask, "How hard can it be?"— behind this mission, which involved an overnight excursion to California's high desert, where dozens of volunteers gathered in freezing temperatures to make the project possible.

The result? Setting the world record for the largest cluster balloon flight ever.
