Airships!


I secretly (openly?) started this blog because I wanted to run an airship blog. Airships and trains, that’s how to travel.

So we’ll start with this bit of news: DARPA (military mad scientists) was given $2 million to investigate airship manufacturer Aeros‘ latest attempt at technological advance, what they call BAAV. From the comments over at DangerRoom’s Article:

WorldWide Aeros claims that they can adjust the buoyancy of their ship by compressing helium into an internal reservoir. This is theoretically possible. No one in the airship community outside of WorldWide Aeros … believes that WWA can do it.

Like Birds Before The Storm,

so dark before the dawn.

The title of this blog is inspired by a bit of poetry out of the long-extinct gothic-rock band The Thaw. Two members of The Thaw make up Ego Likeness, an excellent gothic-rock-dance band.

I started this site because I lacked a free-form blog. I post about steampunk at SteamPunk Magazine and some of my zines are posted at Strangers In A Tangled Wilderness, but I wanted a place to ramble and post neat links about airships. Expect pieces from upcoming zines, strange links, intermittent service, and other things of that nature.
