Flying Tube

Flying Tube | Wenatchee, WA | 2015

Seeing the sun-heated balloon dance in the sky above is a mesmerising experience, says one scientist. “Every person who has flown one of our solar balloons has sensed something that will stay with them forever. I compare it to staring at a fire. It’s enchanting.”

— Joaquin Ezcurra, solar balloon designer
