RE: U.S. Army to get new hybrid blimps for Afghanistan
Hybrid, solar-powered, or convenitonally powered blimps represent an interesting alternative to short and medium haul cargo transportation especially for items that are not time dependent. Think of replacing the five to ten commercial semi-trucks with a single blimp. The environmental benefits would be huge and the costs would probably be significantly better in terms of $/lbs/mi.
