Ha! I told you this would come up
. Earlier this year I wrote an article titled 'Peak Oil and Airships'. It was all about how airships are going to make a comeback. I also mentioned that it would take a major player to step in on the development. Well, Boeing just announced that very thing on the 8th of July.
The Seattle article linked from Slashdot also mentions that the price of Helium has increased by 50% just this year. Double Ha! I wonder if any governments are following the advice I wrote in my article. I'll keep my eyes peeled for those kinds of announcements.
