Stairway to Heaven

Air Ship Ventures

Air Ship Ventures

When I say the word “Zeppelin” – safety may not be the first thought that comes to mind…”Oh, the humanity” might…but these days the Zeppelin is not your grandfather’s airship.  In fact – a private company called Airship Ventures has set up shop – selling rides to tourists – at NASA’ Ames Research Center – trying to prove their business model is more than hot air.  Recently I caught up with the Zeppelin in the LA area – and it is some ride.

    About Me

    I am a 26-year broadcast news veteran - with nearly 17 years as CNN’s science, aerospace, technology and environment correspondent. I am an active pilot, airplane owner and a lover of all things that fly. I was slated to be the first journalist to fly on the space shuttle before the Columbia accident ended that dream. I am based in New York City - married with two teenagers and two dogs.
