Research has shown that well-tied balloons can rise up to an altitude of about 8000 meters. At that point, freezing and air pressure causes “brittle fracture”, creating spaghetti-like pieces that scatter as they return to earth. Rarely do released balloons return to the earth’s surface intact. regardless of the latex balloon’s ultimate form when it lands, it will decompose, forming a natural soil nutrient at the same rate as that of an oak leaf.
