Get It Wright -- Podcasts
A series of short videos have been produced by the NASA Glenn
Digital Learning Network
featuring "Orville and Wibur Wright". The brothers discuss many of the scientific topics that lead to the invention of the
modern airplane. You can view the videos on-line, or download them to your computer or Podcast player for repeated viewing.
NASA Explorer Schools
Participants of NASA Explorer Schools Project 2003 have prepared presentations comparing the exploration process
of the Wright brothers with NASA's exploration of Mars.

early innovations helped lead to the development of
the modern control systems of today using rudders, ailerons,
and elevators. This webcast will examine the principles
of aerodynamics, and how they can be harnessed to control
an airplane in flight. The Wright Brothers' solutions
to flight control will be compared and contrasted with
modern day control surfaces. This one-hour, fully-interactive
webcast will pair NASA aeronautical engineers with students
from across the country. It will feature Wilbur Wright's
explanations of flight control, and video demonstrations
with remote control aircraft and the Air Force Thunderbirds.
