The Mobile TOTEM

Whether the Climate Change is actually is happening is not really clear yet, but some strange things are indicating that it just might happen. The ice in the Arctic (1) is melting at a higher rate than scientists have anticipated. Last year Pakistan (2) was hit by a devastating flood and this year again (3).

Revival of the Airship

On Feb 9, 2011 I published in this website a post about Airships and Climate Change (1). A couple of days ago I found a interesting clip on the net. It seems Lockheed-Martin wants to build an airship, the p-791 (2). Considering the products of the company, the military aspect is not surprising.
