I think it would be really cool if airships made a comeback.

Hmm...I`d prefer a simple cruise on water.

I wonder.. You know what would be a great pastime on one of these liners? Being suspended by a cable from one of those things, and flying through the air like that at 100+ mph.. Wow! That would be sweet! Like a mix of sky diving and waterskiing.

Good to know that if I am ever horribly disfigured in a chemical accident, and forced to become a supervillian that I`ll have a secret air fortress waiting for me.

the hidenburg disaster made people totally overreact but this is definately a step in the right direction, although it may not be super-fast, i would definately prefur it over airplanes, even when i fly buisness-class my feet hurt

^man are people going to ride your ass about that comment. anyway, why did airships go out of style? they were damn usefull. its only going to have a capacity of 250 people? wtf? why? i think that they are giving people a little TOO much space. also, there are no more pictures. it hasnt been invented yet. so i guess you cant ride it then...but you would know that if you had read the article.

Helium doesn`t burn, it has a full outer shell of electrons, it doesn`t react, its neutral.

This would be really cool. I`ve always wanted to ride a zeppelin or a dirigible. I think people overreacted after the Hindenburg disaster.

I would be scared out of my mind on that. I prefer the idea of a cruise ship, why leave the ground if you can get a great experience on a ship?

If someone wants to read a book about something like this, read Kenneth Oppel`s Airborn.

You`re an idiot! The last airship to go "Boom" was the Hindenburger, and that`s because it was filled with Hydrogen gas, which is lighter than helium, but also that much more explosive. Helium is not explosive!

If they improved the safety to the same degree of a cruise liner, ie you just enjoy the place, you dont think that you`re on a boat which could be dangerous etc, then Id go!

Well, if it does go boom, maybe they should partially fill it with confetti first, so that the passengers falling to their deaths think, "Oh, is someone having a birthday?"
