AEROSTATIC BALLOONS.

Ac­cor­ding to his­tory, Bra­zi­lian priest Bar­to­lomeo de Gus­mão was the first one launch an un­man­ned hot-air ba­lloon. This development took pla­ce at the In­dies Hou­se in Lis­bon, in front of the court of King Juan 5th of Por­tu­gal, as far back as 1709. Ho­we­ver, French Jo­seph and Jac­ques Mont­gol­fier bros have been re­cog­ni­zed by his­tory as the in­ven­tors of aerostatic ba­lloon. They made a pu­blic de­mons­tra­tion of their in­ven­tion in 1783.
