Looking On The Bright Side of History

Learning More About The Wright Brothers

The fastest means of travelling between two far apart distances currently is through the airplane. 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.

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 brothers appear in the books of history as the first people to ever make and fly an airplane. Although all we know from history is this about them, they had other unique things that are not 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. Death caused by people falling and the difficulty to control the navigation was why the gliding sport was considered dangerous. The wright brothers even dared a couple of times to add an engine which was combustible.

The third fact is that they got their mechanical skills from their mother. Their mum was the one with the skill because she came from a lineage of mechanics unlike what many would think that they got the skill from their father. As she raised them, she made toys for them and even made her own home appliances. The wright brothers always consulted her about their projects until she died from a tuberculosis illness.

another unique factor is that other than the airplane they created other things too. 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 considered promising because they were associated with the invention of a number of some new technology at the time.

In their lifetimes, they only flew together just once and that is the other unique thing about them. 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. This is because they now considered the invention a family affair.
