So some footage I used it's from an Nasa's experiment called Project Excelsior 1959/1960 That guy Joseph Kittinger passed through atmosphere about 31 Km altitude by Helium Baloon (so you right !). If I remember right, after him others try to do something similar, but all of them died. Anyway I liked to use those frames, in that way, just for editing reasons
But of course I aggree with your remark

So I guess a balloon filled with that mixture would be "gas filled" eh?
You guys are killin me. I more than adequately clarified the point I was trying to make. Whats more, the point was valid. The OP wanted to know what we thought of the video, so I pointed out that that particular audio clip was not accurate. I wasn't trying to be a dick. They did not and will not use hot air balloons for those high altitude jumps.
Bill, I KNOW that you knew exactly what I meant even before I clarified it.
Is this the Brady Bunch episode where we all have to live by exact words?
