Russia's Flying Saucer Aerostat
Current LocomoSky aerostats can carry one tonne of payload and a crew of 2 to 8 people. But the Russian LocomoSky company is planning to build flying saucer like aerostats to transport 60 to 600 tonnes of payload or between 270 to 1100 passengers. Such aerostats can transport people and huge payloads practically anywhere in the world. With a payload capacity of 600 tonnes, these Russian aerostats could potentially transport one of Babcock and Wilcox's future 120 MWe mPower nuclear reactors to practically any site on the planet.
