    The A.F. academy is in CO., so there are some eggheads on site. But all the experts on t.v. are befuddled as to what to do?

    We had a fire drill and everyone was looking to see if he was flying over, no sightings. After coming back in I watched the video and he was certainly in the area. What a bad thing to happen. Hopefully they can get to it and do something before it crashes or he falls out.

    The balloon was in the air for 2 hours. He must have fallen out somewhere.

    7News confirmed the boy is the son of Richard and Mayumi Heene appeared on an episode of ABC's "Wife Swap."

    Richard Heene has been described by friends as a sort of "mad scientist." He is a storm chaser and has a Web site, call The Psyience Detectives, which "investigates the mysteries of science and psychic phenomenon."

    7News meteorologist Richard Ortner described Heene as "very intelligent and wildly creative." Ortner accompanied the Heene family as they were storm chasing last year.

    That's speculation. We'll have to wait it out, and hope for the best.

    Sorry, but I've been burned enough times by the media, REGARDLESS, of which end of the spectrum it's coming from;)

    I wonder if he's hiding in a barn somewhere, laughing at everyone.

    I think it was aliens.
    "Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not".--Nelson Pass

    If his brothers saw him get into the thing, then i'm pretty sure at some point he was in there.........Spreading the crime scene over a 2 hour floating space is a REALLY not good thing to have to think about.......

    I'm hoping he is playing a game on his brother and hiding some where around the launch point.

    CNN says he may be on the ground in the neighberhood. It will be a releif if it didn't take off with him in it. Can you imagine what that ride would be like? Whew!
