Les Frères Montgolfier : On September 19 th, 1783, it is thus in Versailles in front of Louis XVI that takes place the demonstration with a sheep, a duck and a cock as passengers. They were locked into a wicker round basket hung on by a rope on the balloon. Once released, this one rose to a height estimated by 500 meters. Handicaped by a tear caused at first, the balloon steals eight minutes and travels three kilometers five hundred.
