A real-life version of the movie Up came one step closer to reality

My roommate hated the Pixar movie Up.  Not because he didn’t find parts of the story funny or heartwarming.  Not because he thought it was poorly written or poorly executed.  He hated Up because he didn’t think it was believable that a guy could travel simply by tying a bunch of helium balloons to the top of his house (forget the fact that it was an animated work of fiction). 

Yesterday, a guy got a step closer to proving my roommate wrong by attempting to travel across the Atlantic with nothing but balloons.  He only got about 12 hours into his journey before having to land, but it’s impressive nonetheless.
