Wright Brothers' Invention Process

(1904 - Beyond) - Pushing the Envelope

After the successful development of the first airplane, the Wright Brothers continued to be involved in aerospace technology. Orville was one of the original members of the National Advisory Council on Aeronautics (NACA) which is the parent organization of the current NASA.

In the spirit of the Wright Brothers, NASA is attempting to use aeronautics technology to provide affordable access to space. Lead by the Marshall Space Flight Center, this aero-space initiative looks forward to the day when space travel becomes as routine as air travel is today.
