Alexander Graham Bell's Tetrahedral Kites

July 29, 2017

Although best known for developing the practical telephone, Alexander Graham Bell is also noted for his work in aerodynamics. This series of photographs, mainly been sourced from Bell's own private journals and the Bulletin of his Aerial Experiment Association, depict the scientist and his colleagues demonstrating and testing out a number of different kite designs, all based upon the tetrahedral structure.

Conosciuto soprattutto per aver brevettato il telefono, Alexander Graham Bell è noto anche per i suoi studi sull'aerodinamica. Questa serie di foto, tratte sia dai diari personali di Bell che dal bollettino dell'Aerial Experiment Association, mostrano lo scienziato e i suoi colleghi testare una serie di differenti aquiloni, tutti basati sulla struttura tetraedrica.
