Google co-founder Sergey Brin to build $100M+ blimp for humanitarian purposes

The co-founder of Google Sergey Brin has arrangements to assemble a $100 million or more airship.

It would be the biggest airship on the planet and would be used for humanitarian missions, getting supplies, nourishment and different necessities to hard-to-achieve regions around the world, as indicated by the Guardian. Known to love airships, Brin would use the blimp, which could cost as much as $150 million, for individual travel, as well.

Google has declined to comment on this story.

The Brin blimp will use internal bladders to control its lightweight body, the Guardian revealed, and helium – not hydrogen, which was the underlying arrangement – will be the gas used to lift it, because of Federal Aviation Administration’s tenets about combustibility.

A month ago, Bloomberg announced that Brin was building an aircraft at the NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, Calif., a similar city, where Google’s parent company, Alphabet, is based.

In the 1930s, the Ames’ Hangar One was one home to the Navy blimp, the USS Macon, as indicated by its Web web page.

Google’s Planetary Ventures leases 1,000 or more sections of land from Ames. However this airship venture is Brin’s, not the company’s, the Guardian detailed,

Airships were an exceptionally mainstream type of transportation in the 1930s, however that to an end with the Hindenberg disaster which took place in 1937.
