Irrelevant. My point is that there are a lot of materials/wealth invested in a vehicle with a very small payload. I'v guessing that this thing cost a lot more than a couple of semi's with a payload of 80,000 lb each.
And those semi’s do not have to lift any of their load off the ground. Also, an airship does not have lifting surfaces (wings) to provide lift. All lift in an airship comes down to the amount of mass that a volume of lifting gas can lift; the more cu-ft of gas, more lift.
