First Manned Gas Balloon Flight - December 1, 1783

Adapted from an anonymous graphite engraving showing Jacques Charles and Nicolas Marie-Noel Robert standing in their hydrogen-filled "globe" balloon waving flags, beginning their ascent from the Tuileries Gardens, Paris, with the Versailles Palace in the background. Thousands of spectators are gathered in the foreground to witness the first manned gas balloon flight.
