David Blaine casually floated up to 25,000ft over the Arizona desert holding 52 helium balloons. I was invited to witness the testing and preparation!

Thanks to David Blaine, Luke Aikins, and the rest of the team for having us and for taking such good health and safety precautions!
Thanks to Kyle Kitzmiller.
