A fascinating countdown of the technologies, innovations and stories that led humans from the hot air balloon to walking on the moon.

THE STORY OF THE HUMAN JOURNEY TO SPACE. Long before anyone had designed a rocket, the Montgolfier brothers were making hot air balloons. In October 1783, they became the first people to experience controlled flight. Balloon to the Moon starts there and leads to Neil Armstrong's 'small step' and beyond.
