And this was because of a highly flammable aluminum powder, not the cover-up story of how a static spark ignited hydrogen, which would have burned up and away from the the airship?

If you look at the sun RIGHT NOW, you are technically looking back in time. It takes 8 minutes for light from the sun to reach the Earth so you're actually looking at what the sun looked like 8 minutes ago.
