[21:01] <jcoxon> evening all
[21:06] <icez> howdy jcoxon
[21:07] <icez> have you ever considered making a small dirigeable?
[21:14] <jcoxon> yes/no
[21:15] <jcoxon> would worry about it just drifting around
[21:15] <icez> we had a discussion about a "Mars high-altitude balloon" that could go down into the recently-found sinkholes
[21:15] <icez> :)
[21:15] <icez> on #space
[21:16] <jcoxon> cool cool
[21:16] <jcoxon> could be done
[21:16] <jcoxon> well on earth :-D
[21:17] <icez> :)
[21:18] <jcoxon> style it on a zepplin
[21:18] <jcoxon> highaltitude would be alot harder
[21:18] <icez> especially considering Mars' thin atmosphere
[21:18] <jcoxon> your propellers would have issues due to the low density of air
[21:18] <jcoxon> have to be super efficent
[21:18] <icez> maybe little wind turbines?:)
[21:19] <icez> suck in air and push it back :P
[21:19] <jcoxon> yeah
[21:19] <jcoxon> just sent an email to the solar balloon yahoo group
[21:19] <jcoxon> some guys in the UK were talking about launching solar balloons
[21:20] <jcoxon> said it was pretty similar to what we do
[22:09] <jcoxon> night all
