Amazon airships?

The New Yorker had an interesting article about the old/new technology of airships .

Airships.fc

Two points caught my eye:

  • Early zepplins were made from cow intestines. Apparently it took 250k cows to make one airship. Ouch.
  • Apparently “more than two-thirds of the world’s land area and more than half the world’s population has no direct access to paved roads”. That’s a lot.

Move over drones, it’s time for the Amazon airships.
