New materials allow for laminated Glass/Graphene plating that can be

produced into large panels. This allows for camouflage, color changes,

transparency (Wonder Woman's "invisible" plane (change color scheme


This also helps AI Designed Stucture


The top link is to a Tesla explanation of how the Glass Roof of a Model

3 is stronger than any other roof.

Seriously,... the Transparent parts of the ship may be the strongest part.

Just wanted to get these facts into the mix as we get to the Structure.

The Graphene Air bags could be attached to the infrastructure so that

instead of pressurized Hydrogen/Helium... all of the gas is pumped out

so that there is a vacume... = NO Gas.

So instead of bulging out it would be drawn in from attachment points

(this was first suggested by Colin Cantrell with the shell of the ship

being the sealed containment for evacuating all of the gas molecules.

What is also interesting is that this 'Pulling in' would compress the

structure by the pulling of the vacuum (in Atmosphere)

Something to think about as we move forward.

Vacuum (we'll be using this word often,... guess I should know how to spell it :)

I can't imagine a graphene air bag that can hold a vacuum. Vacuum containers are heavy.

Why didn't this tanker car float? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kM-k1zofs58

Helium is 0.18 grams per liter.

Hydrogen is 0.09 grams per liter.

I think a positive pressure balloon is much easier & lighter than building a vacuum container to get down to 0.00 grams per liter.

Balloons already exist.
