    Orville left high school in 1888 to start a printing buissnes since his big enthusiasm was printing.
  • their mum died

    Their mum died in 1889 because of tuberculossis.(a sicknes that attacks your lungs)
  • The wright brothers built their first glider

    The wright brothers built their first glider that used wing wraping in 1900.
  • The brothers improved thir glider

    In 1901the brothers improved their glider and gave another try in kitty hawk. This time the improved glider broke the world record by reaching 389 feet, but they were still not satisfied and belived they could make it go higher and fly longer
  • The brothers had a new design

    in 1902 the brothers had a new design that had ruder control withwing warping and proper roder movement, they could get more. That way they could get a more stable flight. This time they brocke another record,and the flight scored more than 600-feet.
  • An American scientist, SamuelP. Langley, made one model that was powered by a small steam angine and flew three quarters of a mile witout a pilot

    in 1903, an american scientist, samuel P.Langley, made one model that was powerend by a small angine and flew three quarters of a mile without a pilot.
  • The American scientist tried his airplane, which was mounted on rails

    The American scientist tried his airplane, which was mounted on rails fastened to the roof of a house boat. The experiment unfortunately failed and the plane raced down the rails and dived into the water.
  • The brothers tried their engine powered machine that they called flyev 1.

    The brothers tried their engine powered machine that thy called flyer 1. At 10:30A.M. the brothers shook hands as the plane rumbled to life, history was about to be made. Orville went on Flyer 1 face down along side the angine on the lower wing. Orville gave the signal to Wilber that he was ready.Sudenly the plane rolled faster and faster, then finnaly rose of the ground; Orville was the first person to fly
  • The brothers perfected an amazing airplane

    In 1908 the brothers perfected an amazing airplane.It could fly 25 miles and stay in air for 30 minuts; it had a speed of 40 miles per hour.The pilot would have so much control it could fly in circles an do figures of eight.
  • The wright brothers didnt get much atention

    The wright brothers didnt get much atention until a news paper reporter witnesed a 1,000-foot high flight in 1908 and that same year Wilber had traveled to france and flew their plane befor European royalty.
  • The Wright brothers built a factory

    In 1909 the Wright brothers formed a Wright co.and opened a factory to manyfacture aircraft.
  • Wilber Wright died

    Unfortunatly Wilber Wright did'nt live long to see improvements on the plane;he died in 1912 from the typhoid fever.
  • the plain was made better

    the plain was made better and cloud fly and go faster
  • ww2

    plains were used to bom citys
  • war is over

    war is over more plans ware made to bulid the plain
  • luna 1

    This was the first successful flyby mission that caught a glimpse of the moon. This spacecraft was launched by the Soviet Union, reached the moon and gathered evidence that there wasn't a magnetic field surrounding the moon.
  • luna2,3

    The Soviets Luna 2 became the first spacecraft to land on the moon. Like Luna 1 it had a spherical shape and was equipped with an antenna. Being located on the surface of the moon, Luna 1 was able to confirm that a magnetic field and radiation belts didn't exist there. The Luna 3 probe was the first spacecraft to return images of the moon. (NASA)
  • ranger 1-5

    After three attempts to reach the lunar surface, the United States' Ranger 4 became the lucky spacecraft to do the job. However, a computer failure prevented Ranger 4 from sending any scientific data or images back to Earth. Ranger 5 ran out of power and never made it to the moon.
  • luna 9, 10

    This year saw many landers and orbiters approach the lunar surface. In January, Luna 9 became the first lander to successfully perform a soft landing on the moon. There it was able to send photos, including four panorama shots and radiation data, before its battery expired. A few months later, in March, Luna 10 became the first orbiter to circle the moon. It made its way around the moon 460 times.
  • surveoyors and lunar orbiters

    In September the U.S. Surveyor 1 made a successful soft landing. It brought back more than 11,000 photos and information to aid future Apollo (manned) missions. To further aid future manned missions on the moon, Lunar orbiters were sent to take photographs of the surface to seek out possible landing sites. Two orbiters (Lunar Orbiter 1 and 2) were successful in capturing those images.
  • Lunar Orbiters and Surveyors

    Three lunar orbiters went to the moon to take more photos of the surface. At the end of the Lunar Orbiter program, photos covering 99 per cent of the surface of the moon were taken. Four more Surveyors made attempts at soft landings on the moon and three were successful. The Surveyors had the same objectives: to support a manned crew to land safety on the moon, while collecting data that would be helpful for future Apollo missions. (NASA)
  • zond 5,6

    A few new missions occurred this year, such as Zond 5 and 6, two return probes. The purpose of both return probes was to fly past the moon from Earth to prepare Russia for future manned missions.
  • apollo 8

    The Apollo 8 mission, a crewed orbiter, completed its objectives. It tested communication and orbit-tracking systems, took photos of possible landing sites for manned missions and tested other equipment necessary for the upcoming manned mission to the moon.
  • apollo 10

    This mission was a practice mission in preparation for the Apollo 11 mission. The only difference was that they would not be stepping onto the moon. On this mission the photo of the earth peering over the lunar surface was taken. A video inside the spacecraft was also filmed and can be seen her
  • apollo 11

    eil Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the moon. neil Armstrong and his crew member, Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin, successfully walked on the moon and returned to Earth. Michael Collins, another crew member, acted as a command module pilot and stayed in the orbiter. They also brought back lunar samples and photos. (NASA)
  • apollo 12

    in this mission, a second group of astronauts walked on the moon and returned safely to Earth. More lunar samples were collected. (NASA)
  • apollo 13

    this Apollo mission was aborted due to the explosion of an oxygen tank before the crew landed on the moon. All members aboard returned safely back to Earth.
  • luna 21 rover

    This was the second Soviet rover to roam around the moon. During this mission the rover took photos of the lunar surface and performed mechanical tests.
  • luna 22,23

    The Soviet Union sent off an orbiter (Luna 22) equipped with imaging equipment that was in orbit for 18 months, and a lander (Luna 23) that was not successful in collecting lunar samples.
  • hiten

    Japan joined the space race and launched an orbiter that successfully performed a lunar flyby.
  • Clementine

    This U.S. orbiter mapped out the lunar surface and was successful in capturing images.
  • AsiaSat 3/HGS-1

    This communications satellite was launched by Hong Kong. Its main purpose was to provide television and telecommunication services. The satellite wasn't placed in the correct orbit and was later obtained by PanAmSat (another satellite provider based in the U.S.) and was moved to a new orbit.
  • Lunar Prospector

    This orbiter was designed to look for water ice on the lunar surface. After a year in orbit, it was purposely crashed into the moon near the south pole but was unsuccessful at detecting any water ice. Gallery created by
  • SMART-1

    this lunar orbiter was used to test the technology, with a focus on a solar-powered ion drive, for future spacecraft missions to the moon. SMART 1 was in orbit until Sept. 3, 2006. (ESA/Space-X)
  • Kaguya

    Japan's Kaguya, a lunar orbiter, crashed into the moon on in order to uncover any water ice on the south pole surface. Its main mission was to get information about the moon from its geology to its mineralogical composition. It sent back images of the Earth and the moon. Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency and Japan Broadcasting Corporation released a moving camera shot taken 100 km away on November, 2007.
  • change 1

    Chang'e 1, China's first probe, is the first of three planned missions to the moon. Chang'e 1 was really a pilot test orbiter to see if the equipment and technology worked. The other objectives were to acquire stereo images of the lunar surface, find helium-3 resources (to mine because it's considered a safe and clean source of nuclear energy)
  • Chandrayaan-1

    Chandrayaan-1 lunar orbiter is India's contribution to the exploration of the moon. It is supposed to stay in orbit for at least two years and has sent information back on possible sources of water ice, minerals and radiation to learn more about the origins of the moon. (ISRO)
  • Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and Lunar Crater Observation Sensing Satellite

    The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has been on a mission to map the surface of the moon, look for resources and find future landing sites. A second spacecraft launched at the same time as the LRO, the Lunar Crater Observation Sensing Satellite, is also scouting the lunar surface looking for water ice.
