A small step for sheep, a large quack for duck-kind On 16 September 1783, a huge crowd gathered at the Royal Palace at Versailles. The King and Queen of France and all the people of their court watched the Montgolfier brothers prepare their hot-air balloon for its historic big day out. 7 So the crowd was very excited, just the way we might feel if we were watching a Mars landing craft.
