Video Title:
How Otto Lilienthal Glided Like a Bird | “Transformational Technologies” Episode 4
Description:
Before the invention of the airplane in 1903, inventors like Otto Lilienthal were tackling the question of human flight. Lilienthal’s research on gliders, many featuring long wings extending from the pilot's body like a bird, helped prove that human flight might soon be possible. In the “Transformational Technologies” video series, the National Air and Space Museum explores artifacts in its collection that changed our lives, transformed the way we viewed the world, or looked at an existing problem in a new way. All artifacts featured are now on display in the eight new galleries at the National Air and Space Museum in DC. “Transformational Technologies” is made possible by the support of Lockheed Martin.
