Daddy? What Happens When you let go of a Balloon

I was asked this last night by my daughter….

Click through for my answer.

Either one of two things happens:

A) It pops and falls to the ground or
B) it Keeps flyingwhay high up in the sky until aliens get them.

Well, you know that there is a gas in the balloon called Helium, that being lighter than air makes the balloon rise up. When it gets high enoug up in the atmosphere Aliens from another planet picks them up and take them to their planet where the atmosphere is more dense so the balloons can still fly longer. When they finally do fall to the ground they act as ground cover until they mulch up and sprout balloon trees.
