Get USED to AIRSHIPS. They are here to STAY.
The AIRSHIP in the photo is the LOCKHEED-MARTIN P-791.
NASA will be using these from now on to ascend into the upper atmosphere and beyond.
The U.S. Military has taken them to heart.
CHINA is currently shooting down their OWN Satellites in order to test their ANTI-AIRSHIP/Satellite weapons.
The U.S. is, of course OUTRAGED over China's shooting down satellites. Britain has filed a former protest.
France is awaiting the outcome.
Our entire Military future in the SKY is affected by what China is capable of doing today.
Why LAUNCH from Earth-bound bases to get into outer space when a launch from an ORBITAL PLATFORM at the edge of the upper ATMOSPHERE will be CHEAPER and far, far SIMPLER? It will consume a FRACTION of the fuel used in a ROCKET launch of today....
The FACTS are in the "NASA and Future Wars" posting of a few days ago....
The DIRIGIBLE under construction there at the bottom is "THE HINDENBURG".
