Coo Coo Ka-Choo!

Say what you like about DARPA, but sometimes the projects they drop for lack of funding end up proving to be extremely beneficial for everyone, not just the US military. Point in case – the Walrus, from Aeros Aeronautical Systems. The Walrus is a prototype huge rigid-hull airship that was originally designed for shifting whole divisions of military units as a group, but it’s now being considered as a potential revolution for the cargo industry – it could open up land-locked nations to bulk trade and free roads from lorry-loads of building materials headed for urban areas.

    Hasn’t Popular Mechanics been predicting the return of airships for 30 years now?
