Solar Inflating 8M Airship - no gas, no pumps, no puff, no hassle
Our Solar Airship
is great fun for children (and adults!) and really does work! (see the video below!) With a length of 8m, the solar airship looks like an big black sausage when inflated, and, thankfully, needs very little effort to set up: just hold the tube open at a brisk amble and let physics, a sunny day, and fresh air do the rest.
- 50m of tether line included
- FLIES UP INTO THE AIR LIKE A HOT AIR BALLOON
- No fuel, no air pumps, no puff required
- Re-Useable use again and again!
- Cheap to run - Just add air!
- Suitable for outdoor use
A BIT LIKE A KITE THAT RUNS ON SOLAR ENERGY
Our solar airship is a cross between a Hot Air Ballon and a Kite - the hot air inside causes the airship to rise (like a hot air balloon), and you hold onto the 50m tether line to stop it flying away (like a kite). The airship's black film outer layer absorbs the heat from the sun's rays, stokes up the air inside and voila! Let the hot air rise to the awe of pedestrians and terror of low-flying aircraft. Think hot air balloons, except with natural heat instead of gas
Don't worry about going onwards or upwards yourself; it takes 150-200 of these to lift the average adult. Package includes
- Solar Airship
- 50m Tether Line
- Instruction Booklet & Flying Guide
The Science Museum in London is one
of the world's pre-eminent science museums, and voted one
of the World’s Top 5 Tech Mecca’s by The Observer. It is
also the UK’s No. 1 visited Museum. The Science Museum houses
outstanding collections relating to science, technology
and medicine, and is one of the most prestigious and respected
organisations dedicated to the promotion of public science
and technology. The origins of the Science Museum lie in
the nineteenth-century movement to improve scientific and
technical education. Prince Albert was a leading figure
in this movement, and he was primarily responsible for the
Great Exhibition of 1851 to promote the achievements of
science and technology. The profits of the hugely successful
Exhibition were used to purchase land in South Kensington
to establish institutions devoted to the promotion and improvement
of industrial technology. At the same time, the Government
set up a Science & Art Department which established the
South Kensington Museum in 1857, from which the Science
Museum and Victoria & Albert Museum have developed.
