    Re-working aviation

    Really interesting video: http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...1189811&q=nova

    About 45 minutes long but fun to watch.

    Cool...had seen a lot about the Wright Bros in the past...but never knew about how they invented the balance for wind tunnels, using just parts found around their bike shop..spokes, hacksaw blades, etc. The documentary stated the fact that even today, with multi-million dollar budgets, the contemporary balances are barely a point or two of a percentage more accurate.
