Did you know, the Chinese invented the kite around 400 BC, which is 2417 years ago. Most innovations in flight though. happened in the 1900's (the 20th century). In 1903 (115 years ago), the Wright Brothers successfully flew their plane Flyer-1 for 12 seconds. A year later they flew for five minutes. For every failure, there is a chance to learn, to adapt and improve on what came before.
Look how quickly aviation technology has grown in just a hundred years. Today we have rocket suits and drones! It's likely that soon things will be delivered by drones and our children may even use them to get to school! It's fun to imagine and b a part of what the future may hold.
