Whether we’re inventing ways to fly or taking a giant leap for mankind, Ohio is a forerunner for world history. That’s why it’s more than appropriate for Ohio to take part in the latest NASA venture to Mars. Last month, a piece of the 1903 Wright Flyer made the 300 million-mile journey to Mars—all the way from Dayton, Ohio.
