Learning More About The Wright Brothers

Currently, the fastest way to travel between two distant places is the use of the airplane. The world has become like a small village because of this means and hence it has caused the growth of major towns and cities around the world. Tourism has been improved, business made efficient and the migration to new neighborhoods simplified through this mode.

The invention has been considered one of the greatest of all times because of reasons such as those. Wright brothers are the ones to be thanked for this invention. The first people to make and fly the first aeroplane are the wright brothers and they appear in the books of history. Although all we know from history is this about them, they had other unique things that are not talked about.

None of the wright brothers was attached in holy matrimony is the first fact that should be known. Most likely is the assumption that they did not meet any woman adventurous enough like them. The next factor that is unique about them is that they were not afraid of death. The wright brothers perfected a dangerous sport, that of the gliders that came before the airplanes. Death caused by people falling and the difficulty to control the navigation was why the gliding sport was considered dangerous. Adding a combustible engine to the already dangerous glider was daring but that never stopped them from doing it.

Their mother was the source of the skill and that’s the third fact. Assumption may be made that they got the skill from the dad but the mother was actually the one from the lineage of mechanics here . She normally made her own appliances and toys for the kids when she was raising them. The wright brothers always consulted her about their projects until she died from a tuberculosis illness.

Other than the airplane they invented other things as the fourth fact. They first opened a bike repair shop and a newspaper printing company after which they innovated the coaster brakes and the oil retaining wheel hub that made cycling easier. The technology they developed at the time was considered cool at the time and being associated with them made them be considered promising.

Another fact is that they flew together just once all through their lifetimes. The only time they flew together was when they managed to get the plane off the ground and that is the only time they flew together and even brought their father. The innovation was considered a family affair and this was the first time they felt the innovation was remarkable and that is why it happened.
