Weird Facts About The Wright Brothers


The airplane is currently the fastest way to travel in between two distant places.  The mode of transport has caused the growth of towns and cities because the world has become like one village.  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 books of history acknowledge the wright brothers as the first people to make and fly the first 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.   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 wright brothers were not afraid of death and that is the second fact that is unique about them.   The wright brothers perfected a dangerous sport, that of the gliders that came before the airplanes.  The gliding sport was dangerous because there was no mechanism to navigate them at the time and eventually many people fell and died.  The wright brothers even dared a couple of times to add an engine which was combustible.

Their mother was the source of the skill and that’s the third fact.   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.  She was her son’s adviser about their projects until she died from an illness caused by tuberculosis.

Other than the airplane they invented other things as the fourth fact.   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.  The technology they developed at the time was considered cool at the time and being associated with them made them be considered promising.

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, view here for more details!
