From the Sands of Kittyhawk captures the wonder and excitement surrounding the success of Orville and Wilbur Wright as they broke the bounds of Earth in powered flight. After a dark and mysterious opening, the mood brightens and you can imagine the Wright Brothers flying their plane for the first time.

At first, it was only the unconcerned cosmos. Then, for millennia, we earthbound humans could merely gaze above, wonder, wish, or be fearful. But we could also dream. After many failures, an attempt succeeded. One hundred years ago, Wilbur and Orville Wright broke the bounds of Earth in powered flight - a wish fulfilled; a victory of imagination, knowledge, and hard work. Thus began the most remarkable developments in human history: Less than seventy-five years later, humans walked on the moon. One hundred years later, our spacecrafts are reaching the edge of the solar system.
