Wind, Sand, History

About this time of day 110 years ago a couple of bicycle mechanics from Ohio, the Wright brothers, Wilbur and Orville, were pushing their flyer out on the sand at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.

A few hours later they accomplished what no one else had, powered flight.

Last weekend the Chinese landed a robot rover on the surface of the Moon.

As humans we keep forgetting that we are capable of amazing feats.
