Madness Technology: Thousand Balloon Flying

Probably, it seems to you that to rise above the peaks of Elbrus on a bunch of balloons is a completely insane undertaking? It seems right to you. But to find out exactly how crazy this idea is, only one person decided in our country. Along the way, setting a world record, which is still not beaten by anyone, and perhaps forever remains unattainable.
Madness Technology: Thousand Balloon Flying
In total, Vitaly Kulikov made two flights. The first took place on September 25, 2004. On 360 balls pumped with hydrogen, the pilot climbed to a height of 400 m and flew 8.5 km in 25 minutes

When Muscovite Vitaly Kulikov flew into the sky 14 years ago, and then, rising to a record height, he went downstairs – though, barely surviving and raising the Ministry of Emergencies and the police to his feet – many wrote and even talked about this event on television . But then the journalists were mainly interested in the dramatic ups and downs of the flight itself and the subsequent rescue operation. We decided to recall those events in order to talk about the technology of such a seemingly not too high-tech project. But should there be tricks here?

Completely nonsense balls Continue reading

History of surfing and windsurfing

It is believed that the first surfers were Polynesians. According to Polynesian legends, their ancestors practiced skating on the board long before the settlement of the Polynesian islands.

The first mention of their art came from a famous researcher – captain James Cook in 1778. During his third round-the-world trip, Hawaiian islands were discovered. Cook was struck by how the Polynesians cleverly overcome the big wave, easily managing the board. It should be noted that the leaders of the tribe had the best boards. Even made from local balsa wood, the weight of their “olo” boards reached 70 kg, with a length of up to 5.5 meters. Lesser people were content with heavier copies of the koa tree. Continue reading
