Should we bring back airships?
I mean, sure, it's great to be able to zip across the continent in a few hours, but I think we should bring back rigid airships. That would make it two or three days to cross the US, sure, but it would be a lot more scenic. Plus, imagine if they paneled the envelope with solar cells! They could operate at no cost other than maintenance.
It's good to be open-minded, just don't let your brain fall out.

Re: Should we bring back airships?
Yes sir,i like it. I really was an elegant way of getting around.
I think an entrepreneur would cash in big time if they did it.

Not sure if the FAA would be so happy about it.

Hmm, depends on how high airships fly. Looks like I have more reading to do!

The problem is they do not do well in storms and are not fast enough to run from them

Since 1925, Goodyear blimps have adorned the skies as very visible corporate icons of the world's largest tire and rubber company that began operations in 1898.

Goodyear's first public relations blimp In the 1930s, Goodyear built two giant rigid airships for the Navy. Within their envelopes, they had internal metal frames used to maintain their shape. The aircraft measured more than two football fields in length and needed 6.5 million cubic feet of helium to become airborne at its gross weight of more than 400,000 pounds.

Re: Should we bring back airships?
From my understanding...the Egyptians had something similar to air ships...

Secondly...that IS our evolution...we will become the second earth or race of the egyptians. Caveat...which originated from the Altanteans...beautiful people in the beginning which delineated into horrible people in the end....sound familiar. However all races had roots in Atlantis.

So look for history to repeat itself.

No philosophy needed...it is pretty dry, cut and clear what will occur!

Re: Should we bring back airships?
Airships would be cool. Kind of like an ocean cruise but in the sky.

In order to make it work, it would have to be HUGE like a cruise ship. That way you could have entertainment and your own bedroom, movie theater, etc..

That's doable. In fact, if it's covered in solar cells, the bigger the gas bag, the better.
