On this day in 1903, an event lasting only 12 seconds occurred on a lonely beach in North Carolina. Within just a few years, this incident would prove to change the world. This feature with the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s Dr. Peter Jakab reports on two Christian brothers who demonstrated what hard work and a little imagination could produce.

My favorite book about the Wright brothers is: Miracle at Kittyhawk: Letters of Wilbur and Orville Wright.  DaCapo Press republished this book in 2002 and is available through Amazon.com.

192 countries are meeting in Poland this week, hoping to resolve disagreements surrounding UN Global Climate Change Initiatives.  The Kyoto Protocol expires in 2012, so many are trying to complete a new treaty by the conclusion of next year.  Even in the midst of these discussions, the scientific community continues to debate the causes of global climate change.  This feature with Dr. Larry Vardiman of the Institute for Creation Research and meteorologist Dr. Michael Oard explores data that suggests a completely different model to explain climate changes.

Dr. Vardiman has written a short article for the November issue of the Acts and Facts Magazine on this topic.
