Total Pole Airship

I just discovered a new Project Website that I would like to share with you. It is the "Total Pole Airship" a project flying with an airship to the northpole.
In the context of the International Polar Year (IPY) 2007-2008, the Total Pole Airship expedition aims to measure the thickness of the pack ice layer covering the Arctic Ocean.

They will be using a russian AU-30 (54 m long, 13,5 m diameter, 5,000 m3) built by RosAeroSystems which will be prepared specially for this expedition.
