I found this story and vid over at the Huffington Post this morning

Consider it a space balloon launch fail. Consider it a spectular lucky no one was killed, Fail...

In the Australian outback Thursday, the launch of a giant space balloon went horribly wrong when a heavy payload of scientific equipment broke off, causing it to be dragged across the ground, and ultimately slamming into a vehicle. Bystanders narrowly escaped being hit.

According to the New Zealand Herald, the balloon was part of research project by student from UC Berkeley.

I think they needed a bigger balloon. Something like the one in this thread:

I was saying how we have such geniuses at NASA now, no wonder we scrapped some the programs.

I posted this same video 2 days ago.
