The rubber Balloon was invented by Michael Faraday in 1824, during experiments with various gases, it can be inflated with a fluid, such as helium, hydrogen, nitrous oxide, oxygen, air or water.

Some Balloons are used for decorative purposes or entertaining purposes, while others are used for practical purposes such as meteorology, medical treatment, military defence, or transportation.
