Sewell Peak

The Sewell Peak walk was nice and peaceful but a lot steeper than i first thought on the way up it got very tough to walk because of how steep it was looking at it it was almost vertical 3.5 kilometres of vertical tasselled road and your legs burnt all the way but when you got to the top the view was amazing spectacular everywhere you looked there was something to see something to gaze at like Runanga Grey mouth Ngahere black ball lake Brunner the cost road it was amazing i could even see my farm.

I think that this relates to NCEA by showing us that it is going to be hard for some people and easier for other and those people need to help the people that are struggling so that everyone can pass and learn.

The first to fly a plane.

The dream of flying is as old as mankind itself. However the concept of the airplane has only been around for two centuries. Before that time men and women tried to navigate the air by imitating birds. They built wings to strap onto their arm or machines with flapping wings called ornithopters. On the surface it seemed like a good plan. After all, there are plenty of birds in the air to show that the concept does work.

The trouble is it works  better at bird-scale than it does at the much larger scale needed to lift both a man and a machine off the ground. So folks began to look for other ways to fly. Beginning in 1783 a few aeronauts made daring, uncontrolled flights in lighter-than-air balloons filled with either hot air or hydrogen gas. But this was hardly a practical way to fly. There was no way to get from here to there unless the wind was blowing in the desired direction.

It wasn’t until the turn of the nineteenth century that an English baronet from Yorkshire conceived a flying machine with fixed wings a propulsion system, and movable control surfaces. This was the fundamental concept of the airplane. Sir George Cayley also built the first true airplane a kite mounted on a stick with a movable tail. It was crude but it proved his idea worked and from that first humble glider evolved the amazing  machines that have taken us everywhere.
