JP Aerospace’s DIY Airship Breakthrough

Most home-built airships are non-rigid using envelope pressure to maintain their shape.  That’s because** rigid airships** normally have to be huge to support their gigantic frame.  Rigidity improves maneuverabilty and allows increased speed.  JP Aerospace has just designed 1.7 PSI thin-film airbeams **light enough to construct into a small airship.  This bodes really well for autonomous and manned small airships.  Oh, if you don’t know JP Aerospace, they’re planning to **float in to space.
