Submission + - Large Slow Airships could move buildings? (discovery.com) 1

Algorithmnast writes: Discovery has a short article on using large slow-moving airships to move large objects without the need to dismantle them.

The company mentioned, Skylifter, refers to the lifting ship as an "ariel crane", not a Thor weapon.

It could easily help move research labs to new parts of the Antarctic, or allow a Solar Tower to be inserted into an area that's difficult to drive to, like say a mesa in New Mexico?
