You already saw the photos of the real life Up! house, but here's the video. It truly looks amazing and unreal. A strangely magical moment.


The 16 by 16 feet wooden house was hooked to 300 weather balloons full of helium, reaching together a total height of 10 stories. National Geographic has sent us raw footage from their new program How Hard Can It Be?-which premieres this fall-showing it taking off from a private Los Angeles air field. It reached more than 10,000 feet during its one hour flight.
