Dream to Fly Planetarium Show

Thursday, September 14, 2017

People have always wanted to fly. From ancient myths of the phoenix and the flying carpet to legends of flying gods and dragons, humans have treasured the dream to fly like the birds. The ancient Chinese achieved flight of a sort with their kites, and Hindus believed in vimanas carrying warriors through the skies. Artist and visionary inventor Leonardo da Vinci sketched out his dreams of flight by mechanical means, and kept the dream alive. The history of flight is a story of innovation and discovery, through the achievements of the Montgolfier brothers and their balloons to Louis Bleriot, Otto Lilienthal, and the Wright Brothers, who pioneered powered flight. The use of planes in both wartime and peacetime is woven into the history of the 20th century. Today, we use amazing jets to fly around the globe. Our ultimate goal -- the stars -- is now part of humanity's ancient visions of flight.
