Boundless mobility

The invention of the wheel opened up possibilities for humans which allowed them to experience the world and its vastness in a new way by integrating that wheel in various kinds of vehicle. Thanks to the car and the aeroplane, great distances shrank in human perception to brief periods of time. Speed became a thing to be experienced. To a vast extent, Man broadened and extended his knowledge and the horizons of his experience. By means of the rocket, he was even able to leave his habitat, the Earth's atmosphere, for the first time.
