Go Green, But Be Patient! Solar Airships Could Make Flying More Environmentally Friendly - But A Trip From London to New York Would Take 3 Days

27 Apr 2023 | Abstracted from Daily Mail

"...using an airship with light batteries - filled with a mixture of hydrogen and helium - would generate between one and five per cent of the emissions associated with conventional flying.

"...drawback is that it would take around two days and one night to fly from London to New York by blimp and three days and two nights to make the return trip, due to prevailing winds...solar film on the surface of the zeppelin would top up the energy."
