Confined for millennia to the distance our feet or compliant animals could carry us, the industrial age revolutionized our travel possibilities by birthing trains, cars and airplanes. Humans have this insatiable need to travel, to see new things and to find out what is just over the horizon. A Short History of Transportation outlines the history of humankind’s transition from using our feet to travel to new places to the chariots of the air which can whisk us from one end of the earth to another in just a matter of hours. From walking to the first watercraft to horses and finally the automobile and airplane, our means of transportation has included many different chapters. Now we stand at the dawn of space flight and the many new developments in transportation which beckon tells us that we have not finished traveling this road. Perhaps the next centuries will be as exciting as the last ones were.
