Fun Fact!

Have you ever wondered if helium filled balloons could take you up, up and away? Well, it turns out that at least a couple of people have actually tried it!

A man now known as “Lawnchair Larry” took flight in 1982 on a lawn chair tied to 45 weather balloons. He soared to a height of about 3 miles, but when he landed he was arrested and had to pay a fine!
