Learning More About The Wright Brothers
The airplane is currently the fastest way to travel in between two distant places. The mode of transport has caused the growth of towns and cities because the world has become like one village. This mode has made business grow and expand, tourism improve and the moving to new neighborhoods easier for mankind.
Reasons like these cause the invention to be considered among the greatest invention of all times. The ones to thank for this invention are the wright brothers. The books of history acknowledge the wright brothers as the first people to make and fly the first airplane. Although all we know from history is this about them, they had other unique things that are not talked about.
The wright brothers did not marry is the first fact to know. Most likely is the assumption that they did not meet any woman adventurous enough like them. The wright brothers were not afraid of death and that is the second fact that is unique about them. Before the airplanes, there were gliders, and the brothers had perfected the sport although it was very dangerous. The danger in the gliding sport occurred because it was difficult to control navigation at the time and many people who tried fell to their death. A couple of times, the wright brothers dared to add a combustible engine to the glider.
Thirdly, their mother was the source of the source of the mechanical skills they had. Unlike what many people may assume that that they got the skill from their father, their mum was actually the one from a lineage of mechanics. As she raised them, she made toys for them and even made her own home appliances. She was her son’s adviser about their projects until she died from an illness caused by tuberculosis.
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. They were a promising team of people because they were associated with some cool technology at the time.
The last unique thing is that they only flew together once throughout 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 reason this happened is because it was the first time they felt something big as this and they considered the innovation a family affair.
