Pixar’s ‘Up’ Becomes Reality With Jonathan Trappe’s Cluster Ballooning

by ZeeshanN

Meet Jonathan Trappe. He ties helium balloons to office chairs, gondolas, boats, even small houses. Trappe can be called a real-life Carl Fredricksen from the Pixar film “Up.” Instead of flying the retirement home, Jonathan flies hundreds of miles using helium balloons for the pleasure of it!

Trappe certainly is an adventurer, and he has taken journeys that have crossed the English Channel, flown over the Swiss Alps, witnessed spectacular views, and made priceless memories.

The method is called cluster ballooning and it actually was created by Auguste Piccard in 1937.
