The brothers who invented the first successful aircraft were not Orville and Wilbur. They were preceded by the Montgolfier brothers 120 years earlier in a type of aircraft still in wide use today. 150 years before them, the Celebi brothers made the first survivable rocket and intercontinental flights. With the goal of providing an interesting learning experience, the book's focus is not just on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). Also included is analysis of Cause & Effect and a lot of surprising history. So it is not just about HOW things work, it is also about WHY they happened that way, and the consequences. Roughly every 500 years new technology completely disrupts society, changing borders, laws, and the way people live and work. It happened again with the emergence of the Digital Age. Because aviation involves many fields of science, it is a particularly interesting way to show how STEM is a continuum of mutually supporting elements. Applications of chemistry, physics, astronomy, navigation, programming, and paradigm paralysis are presented in a hands-on understandable way.

"Oh, the humanity!" Radio reporter Herbert Morrison's words on witnessing the destruction of the Hindenburg are etched in our collective memory. Yet, while the Hindenburg-like the Titanic-is a symbol of the technological hubris of a bygone era, we seem to have forgotten the lessons that can be learned from the infamous 1937 zeppelin disaster. Zeppelins were steerable balloons of highly flammable, explosive gas, but the sheer magic of seeing one of these behemoths afloat in the sky cast an irresistible spell over all those who saw them. In Monsters, Ed Regis explores the question of how a technology now so completely invalidated (and so fundamentally unsafe) ever managed to reach the high-risk level of development that it did. Through the story of the zeppelin's development, Regis examines the perils of what he calls "pathological technologies"-inventions whose sizeable risks are routinely minimized as a result of their almost mystical allure. Such foolishness is not limited to the industrial age: newer examples of pathological technologies include the US government's planned use of hydrogen bombs for large-scale geoengineering projects; the phenomenally risky, expensive, and ultimately abandoned Superconducting Super Collider; and the exotic interstellar propulsion systems proposed for DARPA's present-day 100 Year Starship project. In case after case, the romantic appeal of foolishly ambitious technologies has blinded us to their shortcomings, dangers, and costs. Both a history of technological folly and a powerful cautionary tale for future technologies and other grandiose schemes, Monsters is essential reading for experts and citizens hoping to see new technologies through clear eyes.
