Caption: German military airship, 19th-century artwork. There were many attempts during the 19th century to design and build balloons or airships that were capable of powered flight. Several airship designs were being tested in Germany in the 1890s. This aluminium design is being held down by ropes prior to launch. The German military would later use the elongated Zepplin airship design during the First World War. Artwork from the 21st volume (first period of 1898) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
