ATSC’s interesting fact of the week
On this day in 1745 Jacques Etienne Mongolfier was born.
With his elder brother they would go on to demonstrate the first ever flying machine in 1783 first carrying a duck, a sheep and a rooster. Later that same year Jacques Etienne became the first human to lift off the surface of the earth in a tethered fight of a larger balloon!
What a legacy he left behind!
