Man flies 193 miles in lawn chair. Yep. It's true.

This is no joke. Last weekend, Kent Couch settled down in his lawn chair with some snacks -- and a parachute.

Attached to his lawn chair were 105 large helium balloons.

Full story here.

Have you ever dreamed of being carried into the sky by a giant bouquet of colorful toy balloons?

That's the idea behind cluster ballooning. The pilot wears a harness, to which a cluster of large, helium-filled balloons are attached.

Control is achieved by releasing ballast to ascend, or by bursting balloons to descend.



The most famous cluster balloon flight took place in 1982. Larry Walters, with no prior ballooning experience, attached 42 helium weather balloons to a lawnchair, intending to go up a few hundred feet, but instead soaring to 16,000. Surprisingly, Walters survived his flight.

Here is a film honoring these men and their balloons:
