Perhaps the most stupid thing about it is how no one seems to be taking any notice of the Balloon itself.. an obvious UFO Flying Saucer sorta thingy. This was one guy with a bit of help from his wife and kids building this thing, imagine was a multi-billion dollar industry is building now.
One of the big problems of any balloon is how to go about steering it where you want to go. This is even more chalenging with a rotating disk balloon type device, or one of those toy "UFO" that are based on an old German design, the problem the Germans had with it was flight stability and how to effectively steer it. This dude seems to be working on at least one solution for that problem.
