don't take hydrogen, for god's sake!

didn't you listen in physics class?


just check out:
if you fill a baloon with helium, it can carry a postcard. two is already too much.
now check how many postcards are as heavy as a kite (at least 2kg) and how many ballons you'll need to lift this number of postcards.
now you know how many helium would be needed to lift a kite.
when you're at this stage, take a short look and guess how much air fits into your tubes.

result?

Kite-shaped hydrogen-filled balloon should Hindenburg nicely

Please do this in a non smoking area. Did you ever see the Hindenburg landing on flames film?

helium's for whimps :wink:

you do one of the most extreme sports that ever hit the surface of this planet (exept tow-in surfing, but that's more challenging your fate than sport) and fill your kite with whimpy - non reacting helium, so your kite wouldn't explode by the lightest spark?
