The science of superheroes: What would human flight be like?

“The human bird shall take his first flight, filling the world with amazement, all writings with his fame, and bringing eternal glory to the nest whence he sprang.” —Leonardo da Vinci, Codex on the Flight of Birds (1505)

“For once you have tasted flight you will forever walk the Earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” —Leonardo da Vinci, Codex on the Flight of Birds (1505)

“All in all, for someone who was immersed in, fascinated by, and dedicated to flight, I was disappointed by the wrinkle in history that had brought me along one generation late. I had missed all the great times and adventures in flight.” —Neil Armstrong, Neil Armstrong: Quotes and Facts (2015)
