Giant balloons that you can ride
in. How is that not just
the greatest idea ever? Zee Germans thought so, at least, and back in
1934, they sent the 776-foot-long LZ 127 Graf Zeppelin on a little jaunt
across the Atlantic from Europe to Rio. It was not entirely smooth
sailing, and some in-flight repairs were required, which involved some
dudes going up on top of the zeppelin, climbing down its sides on ropes,
and fixing stuff.
