Building the new Zeppelin

Goodyear to replace its blimps with Zeppelins via Gizmodo

Rigid airships are back, baby!
Thanks to Goodyear, the airship revival is no longer dead. Working with ZLT Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik, a German Zeppelin manufacturer, Goodyear’s new airships will carry more and maneuver better than their non-rigid predecessors. The zeppelins will be 55 feet longer than the old blimps, have a much larger “envelope” (or inflated sack of air that keeps the whole thing aloft). As a result, the new design can haul nearly 7,000 pounds more than the current Goodyear blimps.
