  • Kites were the first airborne man-made object. During the period of 200 BC, it was noticed in china. Later, gasses like hydrogen were discovered that led to the invention of hydrogen balloons. Moreover physicists came up with various theories in mechanics during 17th and 19th centuries, particularly Newton’s laws of motion and fluid dynamics that formed the basis of modern Aerodynamics.
