Lighter than air

Shanghai Daily - - METRO -

Stu­dents and teach­ers from Shang­hai Luwan No. 1 Cen­tral Pri­mary School fly a Kong­ming lamp yes­ter­day to cel­e­brate the new year in a tra­di­tional Chi­nese way. The lamp is made of pa­per and rises into the air from the heat of a can­dle in­side. Its in­ven­tor, Zhuge Liang, who is also known as Zhuge Kong­ming, was a no­table states­man and strate­gist in the Three King­doms pe­riod (220-280). — Zhang Dong
