K-03 Full-metal airship of the Russian philosopher

Abstract
Back in 1886 Ziolkovsky [Tsiolkovski] worked out an original conception of an all-metal airship of changeable volume. Ziolkovsky offered not just a
project of a single airship, but also an idea of a global transport
system, safe and cost-effective, as well as a plan of its realisation. At
present a group of specialists under the aegis of the Russian
Aeronautical Society is working on the DZ-N1 transport airship with
payload of 180 tons, based on ideas of Ziolkovsky. The scientist’s
prophecies concerning rocket technologies and space exploration
have come true — now it’s the time for airships.
