The ‘flying’ Dream

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), the world-famous painter and sculptor, was the first to think about and logically design flying machines.
The first glider was built in 1893, four centuries later. Ten years later, in 1903, the Wright brothers built the first mechanized aircraft.
Then, three decades later, the first rocket flew into the sky

The history of the rocket dates back to CE1000 in China. At that time, the Chinese used rockets for entertainment. Rockets have also been used as a weapon since the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Tipu used rocket weapons in his wars against the British.

In the second quarter of the twentieth century, the space race between the Soviet Union and the United States for space supremacy made great strides in rocket technology.

On April 12, 1961, the world woke up to the news of Urigar’s space flight. Space was a world that man had never traveled before.

Space research and technology have come a long way over the past half century.
