    On CNN right now live.

    Here's a link to a Denver TV station.

    What if he gets close to a mountain or building and smashes into it? Will CNN show that?

    This youngest-to-circumnavigate-the-globe stuff is getting ridiculous.

    /too soon?

    NORAD is close by. Do they send out some kind of plane with a parachuter or something?

    I really hope we don't watch a little kid plummet to his death live on CNN.

    That said, it appears the local TV station can't find the balloon right now due to cloud cover.

    If a parachuter hits that thing it'll probably fall apart. It's nothing but plywood according to the story.

    I don't see how they can hope to land that thing safely.

    This is unreal.

    Kid is either having a blast, or scarred shitless.

    When I walked into a room with the TV on, I first assumed that it was one of those kids setting a record. But this is horrible.

    If it's helium, that thing will stay up there for a long time. Pray that the cold Colorado air will force it back down.

    I'd worry about air currents from a helicopter or other aircraft causing this thing to crash.

    Geez, that thing is really moving fast.
