Summary
A descendant of the Montgolfier brothers, who invented the hot air balloon will join a team to build a highly accurate replica of the fragile paper and canvas craft using 18th century tools and materials. Nova reveals the secrets of how the Montgolfiers invented flight, and evokes the thrilling and daunting prospect that the balloon pioneers faced as they left Earth for the first time. Their exploits fascinated Benjamin Franklin, who was serving in Paris as the American ambassador
