Swiss psychiatrist Bertrand Piccard and British pilot Brian Jones have traveled farther and stayed aloft longer than anyone else has in a hot air balloon.

Researchers are developing an aerosol spray that could be used to treat cystic fibrosis.
The inherited disease prevents the body from clearing the lungs.
It's caused by a faulty gene that inhibits the movement of electrically charged atoms across cell membranes.
The experimental spray contains a healthy gene combined with a natural fat.
Researchers tried it on eight people with the disease. They showed a 25 percent improvement.
The lead investigator says more study is needed, but they think they're on the right track.
