Learning More About The Wright Brothers

Currently, the fastest way to travel between two distant places is the use of the airplane. The world has become like a small village because of this means and hence it has caused the growth of major towns and cities around the world. Through this, people are able to move around the world for pleasure or business or to settle in new neighborhoods among others.

Reasons like these cause the invention to be considered among the greatest invention of all times. The wright brothers who invented this are the ones to thank. The brothers appear in the books of history as the first people to ever make and fly an airplane. There are a lot of things that are not talked about the wright brothers because all we know about them is the fact that they made the airplane.

The wright brothers did not marry is the first fact to know. They did not meet a woman who was as adventurous enough to fly with them is the assumption they have given to this fact. 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.

The third fact is that they got their mechanical skills from their mother. 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. Up until tuberculosis killed her, the brothers used to go to her for consultation on their projects.

The fourth fact to know is that they invented other things other than the airplane. 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. They brought the father with them once they had managed to get the plane off the ground and that is the only time they flew together. 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.
