This "NASA Connect" video clip explains how the Wright Brothers succeeded, where other more notable people had failed, to solve the problem of powered flight.  Move the video forward, to 3:58, to see how Wilbur's use of an inner-tube box led to his discovery of wing-warping (also referred to as the aileron principle of flight).
