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.

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
