Unless you live near a nuclear power plant (or unless you’re me) this solar airship is going to be one of the larger additions to your family. Measuring a staggering 8 meters long (pshh, we’ve seen bigger), the Solar Airship uses the sun’s heat to inflate itself.
When taken out into the sun, the Airship will fill itself up within a few minutes, allowing you to sail a few feet off the ground in the process. When you let go, the Airship can fly as high as 30,000 feet. Take a look at that second picture again. What exactly is going on in that image? — Andrew Dobrow
