  1. Spaceflight considered an optimistic daydream… some things don't change, unfortunately. Apparently it's cool among many intellectuals to consider the whole enterprise stupid. Buncha hipsters.

  2. And you forgot Clément Ader, who in 1890, 1891 and 1897 did several very short flights (more short hops…) with his steam engine propelled Eole, Zéphyr and Aquilon (equally named Avion I, II and III – btw, he did invent the words "Avion" and "aviation") on the military grounds of Gretz and later Satory, near Paris under the aegis of the French minister of war which partially funded his experiments.
