"NASA's Destination Tomorrow™: Bringing the Future into Focus" is designed for educators, parents and lifelong learners by NASA Langley's Office of Education. This educational, informative program builds on the premise that much of NASA's aeronautical research focuses on creating today's knowledge to solve tomorrow's problems.
Program 12 - The Century of Flight Special takes a look back at the first 100 years of flight. The show begins by exploring early flight attempts before the Wright Brothers; the "How it Works" segment looks at how the Wright Brothers accomplished the first powered flight at Kitty Hawk in 1903; in the "Retrospective" segment we find out about early NACA/NASA history; and find out what future aircraft might look like during the "On the Runway" segment.
This program was first broadcast on NASA TV Education File Schedule December 17, 2003.
