The Flying Shuttle was made by an English inventor named John Kay in 1733. It was used for making weaving much faster. Allowing people to make larger looms operated by one person, Using levers and springs to pull the shuttle back. The Flying Shuttle became a very important invention in the textile industry, eventually put one or two shuttle throwers out of a job. The Flying Shuttle did use a lot of yarn and did make the supply of yarn even worse. The invention could produce a large piece of cloth; the invention was thrown by a leaver that could be operated by one weaver. Kay placed shuttle boxes at each side of the loom connected by a long board, known as a shuttle race. A single weaver, using one hand, could cause the shuttle to be moved back and forth across the loom from one shuttle box to the other. Some woollen manufacturers used the Flying Shuttle but did not pay him royalties. Many people from the textile industry were of course very offended and attacked John Kay home and destroyed his invention, because they thought "The Flying Shuttle" was such a successful invention it would have taken work away from them. Many people have tried creating well duplicating his invention but have not really succeeded. Inventions of the revolution in textiles were weaving and spinning while the Flying Shuttle had the scene of mechanical weaving; the spinning frame was also important making the textile industry. John Kay's invention had lead the industrial revolution. Without his Flying Shuttle, there would have been no need for the spinning machines that followed, Like the Spinning Jenny for instance.
a space shuttle feels really ruff
they were really good at harvesting and making food and weaving
No there are not any flying dogs.
The astronauts and the shuttle are in the same inertial frame of reference, and are accelerated to orbit within said frame of reference. Try dribbling a basketball when you're on a bus or train and notice that the ball doesn't go flying back, but rather you can dribble it just fine even though the train / bus is moving. Also, when the shuttle is in orbit, it's not really in a zero-g environment (although it's often called such), but rather a microgravity environment.
The space shuttle never landed on the moon, but other NASA spacecraft did.
no because it is not really a good climate for flying squirrels
The speed of flight really depends on what you mean by 'flight'. The shuttle can reach over 1700 mph, but not all that is provided by the shuttle engines. The initial 3000 mph are supplied by the booster rockets.
Not really, it rides a rocket up to space.
Devin Hester can run a 20 yard shuttle run in 4.07 seconds thats really fast
im not really sure, but if u look on another website it might tell you! :)
no, they glide
No they do not they glide
The flying fox is a species of bat.
What a good question, the fastest thing in the world besides light is the space shuttle. But again what a really good question. Tachyon is believed to be faster than light and as fast as light in its lowest possible velocity.
i really dont no
a really awesome animal that can jump really really far instead of flying
Arachne was a mortal who thought she was better at weaving than Athena. They had a competition, and Arachne's weaving showed gods having affairs, and that really ticked Athena off. So, Athena turned Arachne into a spider.
Contrary to popular belief, the Space Shuttle is the orbiter, external boosters and external tanks combined. The bit that actually goes into space is called the orbiter.
No only by flying machine
no it is not
yes they but they are really rare
