Summary:
Twenty-five hundred years before modern air travel the ancient Chinese had learned the complicated principles of fluid and aerodynamics. Travel half way around the world to China where the notion of "hard air" (air pressure) was understood by Taoist monks thousands of years ago and who according to some accounts were actually able to parasail from mountain to mountain. Host Michael Guillen demonstrates how the ancient Chinese paper and silk making skills allowed them to make lighter than air objects and see how this knowledge let them to sail into the wind and uncover a number of maritime innovations.
