Human conditions always have a scope for betterment and new advances in technology and ongoing innovations have been constantly impacting our lives, mostly for the good. These changes have made our lives simpler, faster, safer and easier through various applications, enabling humans live more fulfilling lives. Talking about the transportation industry, a technology that has existed for centuries, but whose potential remain significantly untapped is of Lighter-Than-Air aircraft. Lighter-Than-Air aircraft (Airships) are aerostats that can navigate through the air under its own power. They gain their lift from large gasbags filled with a lifting gas that is less dense than the surrounding air.
Various disruptions happened in the aircraft industry and the dramatic accidents of R101 in 1930 and the Hindenburg in 1937 and the associated politics where Germany was prohibited from building large airships enabled Heavier-Than-Air options to become dominant.
At Empyreal Galaxy, we are working towards re-introducing this technology as it has the potential to become one of the safest modes of transports in the world. Today, with the use of modern materials, controls and information technology, these Lighter-Than-Air aircraft can help solve complex problems both at the national and global level.
