Understanding More About The Wright Brothers
Currently, the fastest way to travel between two distant places is the use of the airplane. The mode of transport has caused the growth of towns and cities because the world has become like one village. Tourism has been improved, business made efficient and the migration to new neighborhoods simplified through this mode.
For reasons such as those, the invention has been considered one of the most amazing of all times. 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. The wright brothers beside the obvious airplane things have other unique things that are rarely talked about.
Firstly, the wright brothers were not married. Most likely is the assumption that they did not meet any woman adventurous enough like them. The second factor is that they were not afraid of death. Before the airplanes, there were gliders, and the brothers had perfected the sport although it was very dangerous. The gliding sport was dangerous because there was no mechanism to navigate them at the time and eventually many people fell and died. 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. 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. She normally made her own appliances and toys for the kids when she was raising them. She was her son’s adviser about their projects until she died from an illness caused by tuberculosis.
another unique factor is that other than the airplane they created other things too. They had started a newspaper printing company, later opened up a bicycle repair garage and invented the coaster brakes for bikes and the oil retaining wheel hub that made cycling easy. They were a promising team of people because they were associated with some cool technology at the time.
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.
