Launch Over the Canal

2005

Event

An impossible task of launching a hot-air balloon over the canal was proposed to a team of assistants. The heat source was to be a small crucible of molten glass with a hole in the bottom. It was the coldest day of the season. The glass was melted in a converted household microwave oven and held approximately one cup of molten glass. The team worked haphazardly to inflate the balloon in bone-chilling windy conditions while the microwave was busy melting the glass. When the microwave dinged the crucible was pulled out, attached to the balloon and set free only to instantly fall into the canal. A fleeting glow of orange momentarily graced the scene before it faded from view on the bottom of the canal in the cold water.
