random fact ;)
The parachute was invented over a century before the first airplane.
Who’da thunk it? Although originally conceptualized by Leonardo da Vinci in the 15th century, credit is given to Frenchman Jean Pierre Blanchard for creating and testing the first functional parachute in 1785. (More about the invention of the parachute here).
The Wright brothers achieved flight for the first time in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina several decades later in 1903! (More on the invention of the airplane here). They used to use parachutes to escape out of hot air balloons!

Scientists have invented a spray-on clothing that can be washed and reused.
Spanish fashion designer Manuel Torres developed this amazing product with the help of scientists at Imperial College in London. The revolutionary spray is made of short fibers mixed into a solvent with polymers that bind the fibers together to form cloth! The solvent allows the mixture to be sprayed by either a spray gun or a can.
It takes only 15 minutes to spray on a new T-shirt! It can also be washed afterwards and re-worn. The spray is cold on contact, frustrating hopes of being able to make spray-on pants and underwear. Other possible applications for this technology is spray-on bandages.
The company that sells these is called Fabrican Ltd. (their website).
