Today is the Birthday of Human Flight

Today is the birthday of human flight.

On this day in 1783, Jean-François Pilâtre de Rozier and François Laurent, Marquis d’Arlandes made the first manned flight in history when they flew over Paris for 25 minutes in a hot air balloon built by the Montgolfier brothers.

Happy birthday, helium heads!
