Did anyone else read the add-on link at the bottom of that article? The one about commercial
dirigibles? Now that's really interesting! Wonder if it will fly (literally and figuratively)?
Yes, I looked at that with great interest. The technology behind it is extremely cool, and once you read all of it, incredibly logical. It was just a matter of software
and materials technology getting to a point where it is now feasible. I went to the Aeroscraft website where they outline their proposed fleet, with the largest craft being over 900 feet long and capable of delivering 500 tons with a range of almost 5k miles. Amazing.
