Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This novel, Inside the Wright Brothers: Flight is Possible, presents the Wright Brothers as idealists who build a dream out of the nuts and bolts of their everyday reality. There is a hard core of steel in the Wrights that, however compassionate, polite, accommodating and modest they appear to be to other people, is the straight arrow that allows them to see their life's work clearly, to make every decision and action move towards the achievement of their goal, and to seldom make false judgments or false gestures that would cause them to deviate from their true course. The assurance that guides the brothers is that quality in creative people that allows them to work towards their life's goal no matter who or what encourages or discourages them, advances them or retards them, promotes them or disparages them. Familiarity with the Wright Brothers story has made the invention of the world's first airplane seem to have a fairy-tale ambiance which is divorced from the sweat and anxiety of everyday life. This assumption of an effortless invention process is actually a hold-over from the initial response to their accomplishment by the people of the Wright Brothers' own time. While suitably impressed with the achievement of the Wright Brothers, the people of the early 20th Century remained unaware of the complex process that the Wright Brothers had actually gone through in order to produce such amazing results. The lack of appreciation of the complexity of the invention process is a result of the pronouncements of "aviation experts" of the time who failed to appreciate the magnitude of the Wright accomplishment for two reasons: an inability to imagine the number and complexity of the challengesthat the Wrights had found solutions to, and a desire to limit the Wright's legal hold over their inventions in light of what promised to be a great financial future for the new innovation. In effect, while the public of the early 20th Century marveled at the invention of the airplane, and gave full credit to the Wright Brothers, many "aviation experts"assumed that the Wright Brothers' contribution to the invention process had involved nothing more complicated than a little tinkering with the ideas of those who were better qualified - by education and by academic eminence - to invent the airplane. True appreciation of the wonder of the Wright Brothers' contribution to the invention of controlled, human-piloted, powered flight has been reserved for the detailed historical and aeronautical researches and studies of our own time. It is here, a century after the Wright Brothers' accomplishment, that the mythical story - of small-town bicycle mechanics astonishing the world with a feat as impressive as the boy Arthur pulling the sword from the stone - and the modern story of painstaking scientific research and development - of problem, theory, experiment and solution - come together. The novel explores the tenacity which allows the Wright Brothers to cling with an eagle's talons to the single idea that human flight is possible.

Have you dreamt of having wings and taking off to soar, glide, and dip with the birds? You are not the only one. Many people have wanted to leave the ground behind and join the clouds and the stars. Two such people were brothers named Orville and Wilbur Wright. These men were alway looking for an idea to explore. Thinking as one, they would put their heads together and figure out how to create something new. They invented a printing press out of scrap. They designed bicycles when they were still a new fad. Finally, they turned their minds towards flight. Through lots of determination and endless experimentation, Orville and Wilbur created The Flyer. For a few glorious seconds, they left gravity behind and took to the skies at Kitty Hawk. It was a moment that changed their lives and the course of the world.

Download or read book The Wright Brothers written by Unknown and published by BEYOND BOOKS HUB. This book was released on 2021-01-01 with total page 44 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Wright BrothersOn a winter day in 1903, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, two unknown brothers from Ohio changed history. But it would take the world some time to believe what had happened: the age of flight had begun, with the first heavier-than-air, powered machine carrying a pilot. Who were these men and how was it that they achieved what they did? David McCullough, two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize, tells the surprising, profoundly human story of Wilbur and Orville Wright. Far more than a couple of unschooled Dayton bicycle mechanics who happened to hit on success, they were men of exceptional courage and determination, and of far-ranging intellectual interests and ceaseless curiosity, much of which they attributed to their upbringing. In this thrilling book, McCullough draws on the immense riches of the Wright Papers, including private diaries, notebooks, scrapbooks, and more than a thousand letters from private family correspondence to tell the human side of the Wright Brothers' story, including the little-known contributions of their sister, Katharine, without whom things might well have gone differently for them.
