The zero carbon emission vehicle as disclosed herein may include a condenser for extracting fluid water from the atmosphere, an electrolyzer for generating hydrogen from the fluid water, and one or more deformable fluid-retaining chambers that couple thereto for selectively adjusting the buoyancy and altitude of the zero carbon emission vehicle in real-time, to maintain the air vehicle in flight substantially without needing to land and refuel the air vehicle. Solar panels provide the energy for the described systems, and the energy from the solar panels can be stored in the form of hydrogen gas which gives buoyancy to the air vehicle.
