1 Solar powered turtle airship on Mon Sep 13, 2010 9:34 pm
There are things that you actually believe will work at some point in the future and then there is stuff you write about thinking, “This is not going to work…” Being around here for as long as I have I have redefined my line of believability and most often am willing to give everything a shot at actually working. That is because of the simple reason that it is easy to criticize and find faults and any budding idea needs encouragement and a few kind words rather than harsh reviews. But this one I just feel is heading nowhere.
A turtle shaped craft, powered by solar panels by day and bio-diesel at night. The ship is capable to land on any large body of water or open field, and fly and land straight up and down. All that sounds great and what is far better is the fact that a press release announces a $200 million investment, construction plans and a tentative test flight in 2009. Yes, 2009!! I don’t know if a car at blueprint stage can get to hitting the road by 2009, leave alone a airship.
Further research reveals a website that consists of a single page with a fuzzy black and white logo with the briefest of contact info a blog that could very well be written and designed by anyone! Do not invest in this at all in this guys; just DO NOT
