Slight change of subject.
RFC averred that there had been no steam propelled airships on "Old Earth"
Henri Giffard's airship of 1852 was the first such. Giffard also invented the "injector" for putting water into a boiler, rather than a pump, therby saving weight and having no "moving parts".

I just think the Duchess of Delthak would not like her name on such a LARGE object. "Here comes Big Birtha"...
