national geographic’s TV series ‘how hard can it be?’ launches a small house into flight using only balloons


in a project organized by national geographic, a team of engineers, scientists, and balloon pilots transformed fiction into reality 

when they launched a small house into the skies, modeled after the pixar film ‘up’.


complete with people onboard, the house was lifted 10,000 feet (3,048 meters) into the air, and flew for about one hour.

from concept to flight, the entire project was realized over the course of two weeks 

as a feature for national geographic’s new television series ‘how hard can it be?’.


the engineers discovered that floating a full-size house is in fact an extremely difficult task. 

the structure that they built for the project is 16 feet square, weighing about 2,000 pounds 

and carrying about 600 pounds of crew.


each of the three hundred balloons used an entire tank of helium to inflate to eight feet tall. 

together the balloons measure over ten stories, realizing a world record for largest cluster balloon flight ever attempted.



the team finished construction on the house and inflated and assembled the balloons overnight
