Remember those heart shaped balloons I told you about a few times last month? They are still floating all in lots of different cubicles at my work. Today I decided it was time to take down the ones at my desk. They were all floating and I felt bad just popping them and throwing them away so I decided to do a little science experiment. The following is the exact text conversation and photos between me and JP when I started the experiement.
Me: I cut a hole in the bottom of each of my heart balloons today at 2:11. How long do you think they will keep floating?♥
Me:27 mins for the first two to come down.
Me: 35 mins.
JP: Still going?
Me: There is one still floating at 3:05.
JP: Jonathan Livingston Balloon
Me: Fly little balloon fly proud! ♥
Me: 1 hour
JP: Go little balloon, go!
Me: He’s done.
I have concluded that if you cut a hole in 6 of your red valentine mylar balloons 19 days after they were filled with helium it will take 1 hour and 2 minutes for all of them to stop floating.
