I've read that early airships often used such a mix. Given that hydrogen costs
about a third of helium, and is renewable, and that I am working on small scale
airships, I am extremely interested in the answer to this question. An earlier
answer on this topic said essentially "Don't use hydrogen," but a technical
answer is what I am seeking.
