Remember Pixar’s Up? The National Geographic Channel does. A team of scientists and engineers decided to recreate the floating balloon house used in the film. Three weeks ago the group launched the house using 300 eight-foot balloons and were successfully able to float the house for about an hour reaching a height of 10,000 feet. Very, very cool.

    Sure, but can they steer it with a couple of ropes while fighting off talking dog pilots?
