What It Is
When It Was Made
June 4, 1783
Where It Was Made
Why It Was Made
The hot air balloon was made as an opening for new inventions and was one of the many great leaps in progress. This invention allowed us to see things we've never seen before and gave us a new perspective of seeing things. This same concept led to even greater inventions and without this invention, the idea of seeing at a bird's-eye view would be nearly impossible.
How This Invention Affected Society
The hot air balloon was used for aerial transportation and more importantly in wars. Balloons were very important during the civil war as they were used for signals, map-making, and mostly spying.
This invention was the first time mankind saw everything from a different perspective and offered more ideas for more inventions in the future.
Who Made It

The hot air balloon was invented by Joseph-Michel and Jacques-Étienne Montgolfier, two French pioneer developers and paper manufacturers. They discovered that when hot air is under a lightweight material such as paper, it will cause the material to float. They then expanded this idea and later demonstrated it to the public.
...before it was cool
The balloon itself was made out of silk and lined with paper. The brothers burned straw and wool to create hot air causing the balloon to float for at least ten minutes. The first demonstration was not manned so no basket was needed to hold passengers.
