Generally the Graf Zeppelin had a usable payload capacity of 15,000 kilos (33,000 lbs) for a 10,000 km (6,200 mile) flight
Weight 12,500 kg (28,000 lb)
Length 14 m (45 ft 11 in)
Diameter 1.65 m (5 ft 5 in)
Warhead 980 kg (2,200 lb) Amatol
Propellant 3,810 kg (8,400 lb) of 75% ethanol and 25% water + 4,910 kg (10,800 lb) of liquid oxygen
Operational [this is the base fuel and oxidizer load and we by replacing the warhead with more fuel and oxidizer will achieve a greater range]
range 320 km (200 mi) [thats the minimum range]
Flight altitude 88 km (55 mi) maximum altitude on long range trajectory, 206 km (128 mi) maximum altitude if launched vertically.
1,600 m/s (5,200 ft/s)
5,760 km/h (3,580 mph)
800 m/s (2,600 ft/s)
2,880 km/h (1,790 mph)
system Gyroscopes to determine direction
Müller-type pendulous gyroscopic accelerometer for engine cutoff on most production rockets (10% of the Mittelwerk rockets used a guide beam for cutoff.)

Yes project paper clip funneled the top secret nazi technology of cat farts into
the military industrial complex who knows how far this technology has gone in the last 70 years.
perhaps the cat fart warp drive
Many companies are working on high-altitude airships.[clarification needed]
In 1999 Lindstrand Technologies, in partnership with Daimler Chrysler Aerospace of Germany, was awarded a design contract by the European Space Agency (ESA) to develop a High Altitude Long Endurance airship for possible use in the telecommunications market. As a result of this, Per Lindstrand was awarded the German-based Körber Prize for engineering excellence. These stratospheric long endurance platforms inhabit the calm upper atmosphere at usually 21 km (69,000 ft) where airspace is uncontrolled, in a geo-synchronous position and remain in the same place by motoring into the prevailing wind.[clarification needed] About 60 and 90 m (295 ft) long, they are intended to stay up for a period of three to five years without maintenance. Applications include cellular phone (S-UMTS) base station, passenger information system, digital broadcast, remote monitoring, metropolitan area network and emergency response network.
E-Green Technologies, Inc., is developing a high-altitude version of their spherically and bullet shaped airships. JP Aerospace has discussed its long-range plans that include not only high altitude communications and sensor applications but also an "orbital airship" capable of lifting cargo into low Earth orbit with a marginal transportation cost of $1 per short ton per mile of altitude (0.70 US$/t·km)
Capacity: 20 passengers
Length: 236.53 m (776 ft 0 in)
Diameter: 30.48 m (100 ft 0 in)
Volume: 105,000 m3 (3,707,550 ft3)
Useful lift: 60,000 kg (132,000 lb)
Powerplant: 5 × Maybach engines, 410 kW (550 hp) each
Maximum speed: 128 km/h (80 mph)
Following successes at Kummersdorf with the first two Aggregate series rockets, Wernher von Braun and Walter Riedel began thinking of a much larger rocket in the summer of 1936, based on a projected 25-metric-ton-thrust engine.
At launch the A-4 propelled itself for up to 65 seconds on its own power, and a program motor controlled the pitch to the specified angle at engine shutdown, from which the rocket continued on a free-fall (ballistic) trajectory. The rocket reached a height of 80 km (50 mi) after shutting off the engine.

I believe mentioning the Holocaust in my post was completely appropriate. Every single person on here bashing the thread is doing so because of American propaganda such as the Holocaust, if they can be convinced the Holocaust is simply propaganda then they can embrace your thoughts fully.
According to Harold Dick, LZ-127 had a dead-weight of approx. 150,000 lbs and total lift of approx. 210,000 lbs, for a useful lift of approx. 60,000 lbs.
Some flights were made using only Blau gas carried in the dozen power gas cells which had a total capacity of up to up to 30,000 m3 (1,059,440 cu/ft) and could power the airship at cruising speed for up to 100 hours. The Graf was able to cruise for 67 hours using gasoline alone, and 118 hours when fully fueled with both propellants.

All things are possible even if it is only in ones imagination?
They exist, anyone reading the OP or your quoted reply , now has an image of Hitler and braun rising above Berlin on a moonlit night as berlin burned below.
So it exists, and it also exists that Hitler travelled to the moon in a zeppellin?
I can see the propellor spinning reflecting starlight.

Not neccessarily, a Zeppelin spacecraft is not that far fetched.
Instead of blasting through the zone that seperates Earth from space, the Zeppelin may have simply floated through it, no friction t,( heat resistant material) was used to make the Zeps balloon.
It was puncture proof (lessons had been learned).
