An IT manager is attempting to go across the Atlantic ocean in a life raft that is being held up in the air hundreds of helium balloons.
The man took off yesterday morning from Maine and expects to be in Europe in three to five days.
He has the record for the longest cluster-balloon flight which was 14 hours and had balloons tied to an office chair. The man also helped make a real life version of the floating house from the movie "Up".
He will let the wind guide him and he could end up anywhere between Iceland or Morocco.
Five people have died attempting to cross the Atlantic in a hot air balloon.
