Comment Lead Balloons (Score 1) 179

Are they possible? I once bought lead foil advertised at "ten thousanths of an inch thick" thinking it might provide the envelope for a lead balloon. Sadly it was 10/1000 inches thick not 1/10000 inches thick. I think a balloon made from gold foil is possible but getting lead to the same thickness may not be.
