The history of transportation is a long and interesting one. Travel was not always as easy and fun as it is today. In the past travel was hard, dirty and slow. Present travel is fast, easy and clean. For millennia travel was by foot or draft animal. Through most of human history people traveled as little as possible. The industrial age revolutionized travel by birthing modern transportation modes. Transportation methods between then and now have changed dramatically. Humans have an 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 our transition from walking. Instead of walking, we now travel by chariots of the air that can whisk us from one end of the earth to another in just a matter of hours. It has been a fantastic journey from walking airplanes. From watercraft to horses, the automobile and airplane, the story has included many chapters. Now we stand at the dawn of space flight and the many new developments in transportation that beckon. It is certain that we have not finished traveling this road. Perhaps the next centuries will be as exciting as the last ones were.
