The International Space Station was a massively expensive construction project. Part of that huge cost was the expense of getting the individual modules into space. Those things were massive and very heavy. In the future, astronauts in space might not need a hard construct to live in.
Morgan Freeman has been acting in films and voiceovers for decades now, and is well known for his booming and impressive voice. Science geeks probably know him for the series he narrates called Through the Wormhole on the Science Channel.
We have seen plenty of stuff tied to a balloon over the years and set into the atmosphere and the edge of space. Ford has done this recently by attaching a model of the all-new 2015 Mustang to a balloon and setting it free to climb.
Balloon artist John Reid built this huge balloon sculpture for this year’s Salt Lake City Comic Con. He says that it’s the largest balloon sculpture ever built by a single person. It is certainly the most vulnerable Transformer ever.

This is the reason I could never venture tens of thousands of feet into the air in a gigantic capsule suspended underneath a massive helium balloon.
Inflatable buildings are definitely an interesting way of creating temporary structures, like for concerts, weddings, etc. This particular blow-up building concept has been in the works for at least a year and it looks pretty impressive.
This Iron Man balloon armor is perfect. As long as you don’t run into any pin-wielding bad guys or bad guys with flamethrowers. Or if the air pressure around you doesn’t pop your suit. Okay, maybe it’s not that practical, but it is still awesome.
If Google Fiber is the company’s attempt at bringing superb Internet connections to developed areas, Project Loon is Google’s plan to connect areas that may otherwise have no access to the Internet at all.

Do you have hundreds of balloons lying around and a lung capacity that needs to be put to the ultimate test? If so, you can do what Larry Moss’s Airigami team did and assemble a huge-ass balloon dinosaur.
I guess that balloons and airships are in, because they are popping up everywhere. I remember one year, there was even a personal balloon with a rotor available for $10,000 in the American Express rewards catalog.
There’s something magical about being able to control the weather, especially if there’s a way to improve it. Personally, I’d like to have some sort of device in my backyard so I can make sure that it won’t rain when I barbecue in the summer.
Unless you’re this guy, you’ll never get your house soaring through the air no matter how many balloons you attach to it. So why don’t you be more realistic and instead show your love for Up by getting one of these themed coffee tables that were obviously inspired by the movie?
