Algorithmnast writes “The Economist has a short article on using big, slow-moving airships to move large objects without the need to dismantle them. The company mentioned, Skylifter, refers to the lifting ship as an ‘aerial crane,’ not a Thor weapon. It could easily help move research labs to new parts of the Antarctic, or allow a Solar Tower to be inserted into an area that’s difficult to drive to, such as a mesa in New Mexico.”
