Google co-founder Sergey Brin is constructing a $100 million-plus blimp which would be used to transport supplies, food, medicine and other necessities to the needy around the world where other aircraft cannot reach.
The blimp will use internal bladders to control its lightweight body, and helium — not hydrogen, will be the gas used to lift it.
Zeppelins were a very popular form of transportation in the 1930s, until the Hindenberg disaster in 1937.
More details are leaking about Google co-founder Sergey Brin’s secret quest to build a giant airship.
The blimp is expected to be quite large, some 200 meters long. That’s not as big as the Hindenburg,245 meters.
