I don't like the design. The kitchen has better views than the
bedroom. It gets cold in the upper atmosphere so it would make more
sense to have the bedroom closer to the heating plant (I'm assuming
that the R factor of a balloon skin is pretty low).
I imagine that the design can be easily adapted, although I'm unsure
about aerospace coding requirements.
But would you really want a view from a room in which you're usually
asleep? And everyone would have to go through the bedroom (via the
trap-door) to get to the basket.
Some people too, including myself, prefer cool bedrooms for sleeping,
and you can see the stars from the bedroom. (Notice the telescope.)
I see you are new to alt.architecture.aerialist.habitat Of course the
rope ladders and macrame staircases are on the outside of the
balloon! The helical nature of the stairways creates a spinning
motion in the balloon to produce an artificial gravity to counteract
the reduced gravity aloft. God is in the details.
Living above the horizon is so 20th century. Living on the 1/Taliesin
low down is ever so much more lofty.
Nice. It's been a touch chilly on the coast, but warmed up a little
this week enought to mosey on up to Lynn Canyon yesterday where we
jumped off the rocks a few times into the rather chilly waters below.
I half-heartedly tried to catch a fish with my bare hands and goggles.
The fish darted out of the way at the last minute.
Aside from the white vinyl, what else have you guys so far been doing
with yourselves in the way of leisure/pleasure this summer?
I'm actually at Cactus Club cafe on Broadway near Granville, which I
just found has wireless internet. I just had some Tai-flavoured
chicken wings, and one of their crappy house drinks. As an offset, my
second was a more classic Long Island Iced Tea (with a dubious taste)
and am now I'm having a nutty colada, which was blended with enough
ice to make it rather watery. Well, looking around, it appears to be
more of a 20-something venue anyway, so I'll just send this off and
pay my exorbitant tab.
Actually, I hear some are considering the first parachuteless-landing
skydive (not to be confused with a skydive partly without a parachute
and subsequent landing with). Maybe it will involve a padded leather
body suit and some kind of very high and well-greased ramp and long
trough of shallow water.
