Don't cry UFO! just yet. Something big is taking off.
While this lighter-than-air craft is the size of a 23 story building, it pales in comparison to the aerial leviathans of the past. The Hindenberg, for instance, ran a staggering 804 feet in length.
Future military applications are being considered for similar craft to aid in surveillance. Some say such ships are already being tested and can explain sightings of UFO's in recent times.
The Bullet 580 makes its maiden voyage later this year when it carries a NASA payload to measure moisture content of soil.
