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.
There’s nothing as serene and beautiful as floating a mile or two above the earth with a huge, colorful balloon bouquet.
Wow. I’d love to try that or some other noiseless flying method, like hang-gliding. My brother and I went parachuting about 15 years ago, but we were both disappointed: it was over too quick and anticlimatic.
