Ten Technologies That Shouldn't Have Died?
About two years ago, i visited my parents at home during the summer holidays. One morning i stood in front of our house and looked at the city of Lindau, Germany. And suddenly i saw a silverish cigar in the sky above the city like i had seen it on many ancient photos. That moment i knew i had seen a modern Airship for the first time.
They are building this Airship in Friedrichshafen, a town at the lake of constance where they also built most of the great Airships of our century, including the Hindenburg. And this Airship has the same name as all his ancient brothers: ZEPPELIN.
for further information take a look at the hompage of "Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GmbH".
