Episode Summary

Technology Of Kitty Hawk
Two brainy bicycle makers...a remote North Carolina moonscape...and an impossible dream. On December 17, 1903, Wilbur and Orville Wright took wing at Kitty Hawk and flew--as none before had--unraveling a complex problem that had defied history's most inventive minds, from Leonard da Vinci to Edison.

Experts at the controls of full-scale replicas explain how they worked--or didn't--and historians recount the brothers' heated arguments.moreless
