Round-the-world in 13 days: Russian traveler sets off on record-breaking balloon flight

Feodor Konyukhov is a well-known Russian traveler, explorer and world record holder. After many years of serious preparations, his new journey is beginning. All he needed was a weather window to set off from Australia on a record-breaking non-stop solo flight round the world on a giant balloon. The balloon is the height of the Tower of Pizza.

This video showcases the balloon dimensions and accommodations, and gives an idea of challenges and dangers facing Feodor Konyukhov on his journey.

This cool video shows the balloon launch in Australia and the beginning of Konyukhov’s journey

Throughout the flight RT will post the journey’s first-hand panoramic views via the RT 360 online project.
