Dream to fly

Since the beginning of history, people have dreamed of flying. Tales of mythical dragon flights thrilled ancient dreamers. Storytellers wove airy fantasies of magic carpet rides. Leonardo da Vinci stoked the dreams of flight with his fantastic drawings and through his eyes; we learned to look to nature for the secrets of flight.

When Montgolfier took to the skies in a balloon, the dream finally became reality. The Wright Brothers swept us up to the sky and started a revolution. It wasn't long before our immense and challenging dreams of soaring through the air became an everyday occurrence.

 

Dream To Fly is a poetic and touching story of aviation development through the ages. It presents the significant milestones on our route to conquering the skies — both in terms of technological breakthroughs, as well as our perceptions of flying itself.

Asteroid Mission Extreme

Asteroid: Mission Extreme takes audiences on a journey 65 million years in the making to discover how asteroids are both a danger and an opportunity for those of us on planet Earth. The danger of course lies in the possibility of a cataclysmic collision; the opportunity is the crazy idea that asteroids could be stepping stones to other worlds — veritable way stations in space — allowing us to penetrate the deepest realms of the universe. The challenges are enormous, but the idea could ultimately save humankind. Explore with us the possibilities in Asteroid: Mission Extreme.
