Wow. Inspired by Pixar's animated hit film Up, last spring National Geographic Channel created a real-life version with a team of scientists, engineers, and two world-class balloon pilots, successfully launching a 16' X 16' house 18' tall with 300 8' colored weather balloons from a private airfield east of Los Angeles. More photos here, too.
