Cluster Balloonist Recreates House From ‘Up’

Some things are just really, really awesome and this is a prime example of one of those things!  Can you imagine seeing a house lifted into the sky just like in Up?

Jonathan Trappe has a simple goal: fly across the Atlantic. Something that happens dozens of times per day by multiple airlines might not seem like a big deal, but Trappe wants to do it alone and in a boat lifted only by balloons. He’s a professional Cluster Balloonist, similar to Carl Fredricksen in Pixar’s Up. Recently, just for fun, Trappe duplicated Carl’s feat by taking a small house up in the air tethered only by balloons. That might sound impressive, but his previous trips across the English Channel and the Alps are slightly better.
