Robert Giloth and Colin Austin On a gusty day in 1903, Wilbur and Orville Wright
achieved what many at the time thought was impossible—controlled, self-
propelled flight. Their accomplishment sparked immense innovation and an
entirely new mode of transportation. To realize this breakthrough, the Wright
brothers relied on experimentation and a series of constructive mistakes. Year
after year the Wright brothers tested kites and gliders on the sand dunes of the
Outer Banks in North ...

was on its way to fame. General Electric, James's employer, shared the mixture
with scientists. But no one thought it was better than the synthetic rubber that had
already been made. As a scientific discovery, James Wright's mistake was a flop.
Then, in 1949, an unemployed advertising man named Peter Hodgson went to
the home of some friends. There, James Wright's gloppy substance was the life of

History is replete with similar tales of iconoclasts, some of whom risked it all, like
the Wright brothers, who gave up their successful bicycle business to follow their
dream of flight. Cyrus McCormick also was a single-minded inventor: his house
and his farm were both repossessed while he pursued his vision of a mechanical
reaper to harvest. He launched a tractor company, International Harvester, which
became one of the most successful American businesses of the early 20th

That was a big mistake. Had the Wrights accepted his offer they might have
avoided the upcoming years of litigation as they tried to protect their patents,
primarily against Curtiss. It's possible that Curtiss might have been content with
just supplying motors to the brothers and might never have thought of building his

tested in those ...
