Richard Heene, who is the father of Falcon Heene, a.k.a balloon boy, had an internet show called “The Psyience Detectives,” where he tried out many of his scientific theories.  His Fort Collins, Colorado family was involved in the project, as his children often appeared in the show and his wife, Mayumi, was an editor.  In a clip obtained by TMZ, Heene shot a rocket into the air and shouted, “60 pounds! That’s like launching one of my little children…”  Some are saying that this was Heene foreshadowing Falcon’s fake balloon ride in the family’s science experiment last week.  Charges against Heene have not been filed yet, but his lawyer anticipates that they will come by Wednesday.
