The dream of flight “The dream of flight” is about how birds stay aloft, seemingly with the greatest of ease, ferried by the wind. How caterpillars take to the air by metamorphosing into butterflies with beautiful wings, and how sycamore seeds turn into helicopters and fly away.

You’ll also learn about man’s centuries-old dream of freeing himself from the Earth’s shackles and soaring under his own power, from Leonardo’s sketches to balloons, airships and modern-day drones. And you’ll see how artists have captured this dream in pictures.“The dream of flight” makes the invisible visible. It’s about eddies and windtunnels, movement and lightness, balance and gliding, and what happens to the air when you fly through it. It’s all here.
