Good one Mike

Q- what gas are the blimps filled with?
Hydrogen or helium?

I'm seeing news stories that "we're running out of helium" but I though that it was just another processed gas .... ?

Hydrogen is too volatile. But, yes the price of helium is crazy. It must cost a fortune to fill that blimp and keep it filled.
