With text and full-spread illustrations, Big History in Flight presents state-of-the-art theories from science and history concerning flight. Milestones and thresholds of life’s adaptations to move through the atmosphere are presented alongside the physical principles of fluid dynamics, gravity, buoyancy, and other scientific ideas. Human achievements in flight are shown as they occur, within an evolving political, social, economic landscape; feedback loops which develop between aviation enthusiasts and industrial interests intensify during times of war.
