The explosion and loss of life that day marked an abrupt end to the Golden Age of airship travel. The airship was the pride of Nazi Germany and burst into flames upon touching its mooring mast, in Lakehurst New Jersey. 35 passengers and crew members were killed, of 97 people aboard. Yet three-quarters of a century later, there is still no clear answer as to how the incident occurred.

Due to the scale and volume of the Hindenberg – along with the intricacies of its design no one has ever been able to provide a satisfactory explanation of how or why the disaster occurred, until now. We debate sabotage, mechanics, weather, and even passengers themselves.
